Musician Michael Patrick Kelly and pop singer Sophia were awarded the Golden Hen

The singer and musician Michael Patrick Kelly and the pop singer Sophia from North Rhine-Westphalia were awarded the Golden Hen on Friday. In front of around 600 invited guests, the two musicians and other award winners accepted Germany's largest audience award in Leipzig.

Originally created to honor artists from East Germany, this year the audience did not honor a single East German celebrity with a golden hen. The jury for the prize, on the other hand, awarded an honorary prize to the band City, which was founded in East Berlin in 1972.

The TV gala was moderated by pop singer Florian Silbereisen, who received the award three times himself.

Schlager singer Roland Kaiser was delighted to receive the award in the Entertainment category for his Kaisermania concert series. The West Berlin-born singer is the only winner of the evening to have won the bird-shaped sculpture in the past. In 2014, the 70-year-old was awarded the Golden Hen for his life's work. Silbereisen last received the audience award in 2020 in the music category.

As in the previous year, the award ceremony was held in front of an audience again this year. While no live viewers were allowed to come to the TV gala in 2020, it took place in front of thousands of guests before the start of the corona pandemic.

The prize is awarded jointly by the magazine "Super Illu" and MDR television. The name of the prize is reminiscent of the GDR entertainer Helga "Henne" Hahnemann, who died in 1991.
