He could laugh about it, the TV viewers not so much.
Suhl - "This man always has the most original gift tips every year," says Florian Silbereisen, looking forward to Ross Antony's appearance.
And as you are used to from the pop singer, he performs the German version of "Let It Snow!" full of energy and in a good mood.
let it snow
let it snow!”
But Ross Antony's Advent festival performance doesn't go as planned.

Have you swallowed a bit of snow?” asks Florian Silbereisen and tries not to get infected by his Schlager colleague's laughter.

"I walked over, did my spin, and then BOOM!" Ross Antony describes the fateful moment.
But when Ross Antony splutters and tries to free his tongue and palate from the artificial snowflakes, Florian Silbereisen, one of the biggest German hit stars of all time, also has to laugh.
Why 100,000 lights?
In 2010 the Christmas show went on the air as "The Advent Festival of Folk Music", in 2011 the name was changed.
The reason: since 2009, the light of peace has been passed on annually until 100,000 lights are on in the show.
Since November 26, 2011, the program has therefore been titled “The Advent Festival of 100,000 Lights” in line with tradition.
