Schlager singer Eric Philippi failed in a duel against Chris Steger in "Who knows what is going on?" – and that because of a music question, of all things.
Munich - On Tuesday (28 November), pop singer Eric Philippi (26) and Austrian musician Chris Steger (19) competed against each other on "Who knows what is going on?". In the process, the "Schockverliebt" interpreter got on the wrong track when it came to a music question in the "Hits" category. And that's despite the fact that Philippi had recently taken a closer look at the song in question.
Eric Philippi on his own on "Who knows something like that?"
Eric Philippi, who recently tore his pants on stage, was in a team with Guess Captain Bernhard Hoëcker (53) and the two were supposed to answer the question "Why did the singer Jack White keep the riff of the hit 'Seven Nation Army' under lock and key for a few years?" The answers were "A: He didn't want to play it until his daughter's seventh birthday", "B: He didn't want to release a football hit for the 2002 World Cup" and "C: He dreamed of using it as the theme song for 'James Bond'".
When Philippi began to hum the melody of the song in question quite correctly and Hoëcker asked him to do it louder, it quickly became clear that the captain would be of no help to him with this question. At first, it looked as if the pop singer was well informed. He reported that he recently had to deal with the song, which, according to him, "later actually became a football hit". In this context, he discovered many stadiums in America on the Internet where the song was played in football.

Bernhard Hoëcker expressed concerns, but Eric Philippi did not find the song mystical enough for "James Bond". And so the captain finally gave his teammate the advice: "Honestly, I would just trust your feeling." Which the pop singer then did and logged in answer B.

Unfortunately, this answer was wrong - it would have been the James Bond song from answer C. But even if the pop singer embarrassed himself a bit with a music question, he was at least not the only one. According to team captain Elton (52), the Austrian singer Chris Steger from the opposing team would also have opted for answer B. Only Elton himself probably had the right nose.
