“There are hundreds in the musical schools who sing better”
Désirée Nick hands out violently to Helene Fischer
In her podcast, Désirée Nick badmouths Helene Fischer. The cabaret artist criticizes her singing.
Helene Fischer has to take harsh criticism.
Helene Fischer (38) is one of the most successful singers in Germany. Before she celebrated great success as a pop singer, she completed a three-year training course to become a state-approved musical singer at the Stage & Musical School Frankfurt in Frankfurt am Main. Désirée Nick (66), who is a classically trained ballet dancer and singer, nevertheless criticizes her singing sharply.
In her podcast “Lose Luder” she claims: “There are hundreds of musical schools that sing better than Helene Fischer.” For a musical singer, she is definitely mediocre. “It’s not bad, but it’s not good either,” Nick says. Ultimately, it is the overall package, how she looks, how she behaves.
“Purely vocally, what Helene Fischer does is nothing special”
In an interview with “Bild”, Nick even follows: “Her diligence also plays a role, but purely vocally, what she does is nothing special. This is absolute standard! In terms of food, that’s good, German home cooking at a better gas station.”
Désirée Nick has a guess: “I would even go so far as to say that Helene Fischer switched to hits because she didn’t get any engagement in the musical. Probably because her expertise in acting was not there – and she could not tap.” She is also not a great dancer. In terms of marketing, however, she is an absolute queen. “She has always evolved.” (bsn)
