"Bachelorette" Sharon Battiste (31) already impressed the jury and the audience with her Cha Cha Cha for the opening show of "Let's Dance" on Friday evening (February 17, on RTL and RTL). There were 19 points and lots of praise for their performance by Motsi Mabuse (41), Jorge González (55) and Joachim Llambi (58). Will she take on the role of favorite in season 16?
In any case, the potential seems to be there, as she revealed in an interview with the news agency spot on news: "I have experience in dancing, I have a sense of tact and rhythm." The 31-year-old also seems to have a lot of ambition, which, as is well known, must not be missing from "Let's Dance": "I have a lot of discipline and expect myself to give everything so that I'm satisfied."
Her "loving" partner Jan Hoffmann (31), to whom she gave the last rose in her "Bachelorette" season in 2022, can "dance really well" and is a great support for her. The florist and family and friends would support her, "that helps me a lot," says Battiste.
Model Anna Ermakova (22) is likely to be a strong competitor for her. The daughter of tennis legend Boris Becker (55) got the best result of the evening with 23 points for her slow waltz on Friday. But the "Bachelorette" doesn't let that unsettle him: "I trust myself and that will help me, I step on the gas and enjoy every single second on site."
The 16th season of "Let's Dance" started on February 17 with "Who is dancing with whom? The big introductory show". Starting next Friday (February 24), the actual competition will start live at 8:15 p.m. The first celebrity will be eliminated from the next edition.
