Traditionally, in this time of the year, the honour to crown the chart always goes to the winner of Deutschland sucht den Superstar, the casting show of one Dieter Bohlen. So, there should be no surprised as Aneta Sablik (only the third female winner in the show's relatively long history) and her winning song "The One" debut straight at #1 just a year after Beatrice Egli did the same with schlager anthem "Mein Herz". It would however be more surprising if Aneta manages to have a long-term career, which has been a task too tough for the winners of DSDS so far (with only one or two exceptions). Runner-up Meltem Acikgoez and her finale song "Explosion In My Heart" come new at #25.

Naidoo brings his make on Andreas Gabalier's song "Amoi Seg Ma Uns
Wieder" directly in the top 20. Naidoo's performance was part of a
current TV show during which famous local artists sing each others
songs. Thus, the episode in which the participants had to perform
Gabalier's songs turned into a huge success, triggering also the
interest of Germans into the Austrian star's back catalogue. On the back
of this, Gabalier's own version of "Amoi Seg Ma Uns Wieder" comes new
at #18, becoming his first ever top 20 single in Germany.
