René Casselly (25) danced to victory in “Let’s Dance” on Friday evening. He prevailed against his final opponents Janin Ullmann (40) and Mathias Mester (35). One who was no longer allowed to dance for victory was Amira Pocher (29). For the presenter, the final stop was in the semifinals. Apparently, that still annoys her, because she found the evaluation of her performance unfair.
In her podcast “Die Pochers hier!”, which she has together with husband Oliver Pocher (44), she lets her frustration out. “Absolute joke. Absolute cheek! It cannot be that a Quickstep is rated better than our Tango by another person. Which was really highly complicated. It had 80 different tango steps in it. It was a highly demanding, beautiful tango,” she clarifies.

Amira Pocher blames Joachim Llambi
She is alluding to Mathias Mester’s performance. However, she emphasizes that it is not the ex-athlete’s fault: “Mathias cannot do anything for his assessment. He always puts on a great show too. It has nothing to do with Mathias. It has to do with the ratings. Especially from Mr. Llambi. You can always feel who is being directed where.”
Joachim Llambi (57) continues to criticize her: “We have been rated too badly, especially by the person on the far right. I’m not talking about Jorge or Motsi, it was all fair.” Pocher believes that she was deprived of her place in the final: “That makes me angry. Had I been rated fairly or differently I might have had a better chance. But it was already clear to us, that’s it.” She felt beforehand who should go to the final. “You just notice that.”
“This season has become a theater of absurdities”
She receives support from her husband, who took part in “Let’s Dance” in 2019. “What can I say? But in a way, this show has been exposed to absurdity this season as well.” He also claims that the season was not nearly as successful as previous ones. “On average, a million people less watch it. I can also say that as an outsider. Because this season has become a theater of absurdities. At the beginning through the Corona stories », says Oliver Pocher, who means the many failures due to Corona.
Were the phone lines busy?
Then Amira Pocher adds again. Allegedly, the telephone lines through which the viewers could vote were often busy: “They couldn’t call. I heard that from a Mike Singer, read it in comments. I really have to ask that. Why were the lines busy.” Her husband doesn’t seem to be really convinced of that and emphasizes: “I don’t want to take up any conspiracy theory now.” (bsn)
