Some of the titles were produced as a duet with his wife Sarah. In 2015 he appeared on TV shows and in docu-soaps with Sarah. He has been a juror there since 2019, before his career really began, in the “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” team.
Pietro Lombardi was born on June 9th, 1992 in Karlsruhe. His father Giovanni Lombardi is Italian and his mother Nicole is German. He grew up in his native town with his younger sister and older brother. He finished high school without a degree. Pietro started an apprenticeship as a painter and varnisher, he broke off the training. He caught up on his secondary school leaving certificate in a year of introductory work. In addition, he had various mini-jobs, including as a Swarovski stone setter in a jeweler’s workshop and as a pizza baker. Pietro Lombardi played in the B-Junior Bundesliga at Karlsruher SC with the aim of becoming a professional footballer. He had to give up this dream at the age of 16 after breaking his tibia and calf. He devoted himself to the hobby of singing and music and was able to catch up with positive votes on YouTube with his first song. In 2013 he married Sarah Engels, in 2015 their son Alessio was born, at the end of 2016 the couple separated. The marriage was divorced in 2019.
The passionate hobby singer applied to “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” in 2010. Right from the start he was a favorite, especially with the female fans, because of his natural and nice nature. Pietro sang, danced and talked his way into the hearts of the audience. In 2011 he won the show, followed by his girlfriend Sarah Engels. His winning song “Call my Name” sold 300,000 copies within a week. After his first place in the singing show, Pietro produced more music albums. From 2011 to 2012 he released the albums “Jackpot” and “Pietro Style”, some of which he sang with his wife. All songs and music albums come from Dieter Bohlen, the chief judge and producer of DSDS. The album “Pietro” fell short of expectations, Pietro did not make it into the top ten with any other single. The tour with his wife Sarah flopped, Bohlen quit working with Pietro in 2012. Lombardi worked on his music career himself, but he was unable to build on his earlier successes.
Pietro’s greatest success is and remains his song “Call my Name”, with which he took first place in the singing show. Due to the high sales figures, he was awarded platinum for it. The song reached number one in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The duet single by Sarah and Pietro “I miss you” was released in June 2011 and reached number 2 in the German single charts. In 2012, the singer won an award at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in the category Favorite Star Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
In March 2013, Pietro and Sarah surprised their fans with an unexpected wedding. This made headlines and both of them were regular guests on RTL2 with their docu-soaps. From building a house to the birth of her son, from vacation to the sad end of the marriage. Lombardi also appeared at Steffen Henssler and the Global Gladiators Game Show at Pro Sieben. Together with Kay One he released a single in 2017 and can finally look forward to a 1st place in the German and Austrian charts again.
- “The main thing” Alessio is fine, this saying by Pietro went through the media.
- “I mostly listen to my heart, that’s the best advice”.
- “At the end of the day, we’re all normal people.”
Not everyone knows how important his son Alessio is to him. He is always his top priority, which Pietro wrote down in his book “Hero papa in the chaos of crumbs – my new life”. The book is not always written intelligently, it tells the everyday life in great detail. He wrote his book as he is, unpretentious, emotional and not omniscient
