A month after delivering San Marino disco style with “I Didn’t Know” in Stockholm, Serhat continued to seduce Europe with a live performance of his earlier single “Je m’adore” (I love myself) on the popular German entertainment show ZDF Fernsehgarten.
His German television appearance marked his first performance since appearing at Eurovision 2016 with “I Didn’t Know”. His deep, seductive voice with there, delivering his self-love anthem with that Serhat style that we came to love in Stockholm.
The open-air set decorated like a football pitch might not have delivered the same glam style as his Eurovision performance, but Serhat and his large troupe of dancers gave a performance with plenty of energy.
Serhat wore a colourful purple suit with a coordinated bowtie, topped off with a white fedora. Following his stage move from Stockholm, Serhat also threw his hat into the audience, a smart move on the summer’s afternoon.
Germany did not vote in San Marino’s semi-final, so it’s difficult to gauge how many Serhat fans there are in Germany, though neighbouring Austria did give San Marino five points through its televote, so there very well may be a Serhat fanbase in German-speaking Europe.
