He’s the all-singing, tap dancing, accordion-pumping, cabaret performer who has taken the world by storm with his glitter infused cabaret performances.
After a decade of sporting hot-pants and sequins, Hans the ‘German’ superstar is now picking up more momentum than a Volkswagen on the autobahn as his loyal army of supporters have made shows such as ‘Hans – like a German’, ‘Hans: In Da House’ and ‘Viva Hans Vegas’ sell out affairs at both the Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Strip back the sparkles and meet Matt Gilbertson, one of South Australia’s most loved, talent and outrageous performers. Gilbertson, aka Hans, has recently had his eyes firmly on Tinseltown as he strut his stuff for the judges of top-rating talent show – America’s Got Talent. After waltzing through the early stages of the competition, wunderkind Hans became the first Australian to have made it to the show’s finals which he kicked off with a glitzed-up rendition of Spice Up Your Life.
In recent weeks this Adelaide-born boy wonder has wowed audiences and lit up the stage with his all-singing, all-dancing performances but it’s his quick wit and dazzling personality that kept the judges Simon Cowell, Scary Spice Mel B and fellow German Heidi Klum eating out the palm of his hand.
The US public might not have been ready to ‘make America glitter again’ as they recently voted Hans out of the spotlight but that’s not enough to make him hang up his lederhosen just yet. This diamond incrusted superstar is on the up, and we’re putting our Hans together and supporting him every step of the way.
