Sadly, in THis set of higher quality videos of THe ‘2005 Comets Backstage’, THere is a chunk missing.
Here is a video THat has THe missing bit.
Nena: Finally we meet!
Nena: When you’ve got some time left afterwards just pass by und I’ll introduce you to my band!
Bill: Yes, cool.
Nena: My room is there around the corner.
Tom: Yes, we’ve already passed it once…
Nena: (laughs) Okay. Bye
Bill: Yes, that was cool! I’ve waited very long for that, it’s really nice. Now you notice, thats the cool thing; you get to know so many people on events like this. Und we’re just the same as before, but we’re allowed to go to this sort of event. Thats incredible.
Interview with ‘Sugar’, 4 hrs till showtime.
Interview with MTV
Georg: We absolutely love to play live, und that stimulates us, sometimes we’re like: “We’ve got a performance tomorrow und we’re still giving interviews now”. But I don’t mean that we’ve had enough of the interviews; it has always been clear that we would do that kind of thing und we’re enjoying it actually.
Photo shoot with ‘Bravo’
Gustav: I think it’s exciting, when there is always people there who scream for you… tha’s cool.
Tom: Of course things have changed for us; we can’t just walk on the street without being recognized. We’re travilling a lot with the band, we also have a break of a year with school. So we can organize everything a bit better.
Bill: We’re doing now what we’ve done after school all the time. After school we always went straight to the rehersal room, we’ve only been making music. Now we can do that all day long so it all just turned around; when we have time left after making music, we do schoolwork. It’s going well.
Georg: There was always press waiting in front of the school und they also went inside the building. Sometimes I got called to the teacher’s room in the middle of a class because some guy from one or another magazine was waiting there who wanted me to give him an interview. That just doesn’t work.
General try-outs, 2 hrs till showtime
Tom: Well, maybe Gustav plays for his love. But I can imagine when I would be in love right now I would want her to watch. But further you’re totally free up on that stage; it’s a rock show; we play for our fans.
3 mims till autograph session at the red carpet.
Georg: We always wail around like this, we don’t specially change befor a show.
Bill: No,… We come like this in the morning und stay like this all day.
Tom: I would go to school the way we look now; I always walk around like this.
The Red Carpet autographs
Bill: I didn’t think there were even so many people at the red carpet, I was really surprised so many were standing there.
Tom: Now we’re getting a little bit excited.
Bill: Yes, the nervousness is coming.
Bill: I certainly think that the after show party is going to be really nice, we’re really looking forward to it. Und of course extremely looking forward to the performance. Und I got to say I’m really curious who is going to win the National Best New Comer Comet. I think that it’s going to be a tight race, because there are very many great artists nominated, with some very successful songs. We’ll see, I’m curious.
Georg: We have very different charictors, we’ve known each other for five years now, und we know each other’s kinks und quirks. We know exactally how to tease one another, but also when to leave one another alone. Und that’s an advantage of us.
Bill: Shouldn’t we get going?
Tom: Man, we have to be there at about a 1/4 to 10, und now it’s only a 1/4 to nine!
1 hr till showtime
Tom: Hey, are you crazy?
Bill: What? Oh, I’m sorry… I’m very nervious; I think I haven’t been this nervious in a long time.
Tom: To be honest I’m not really nervious yet.
Bill: I’m really a nervios wreck right now.
Georg: I’m all jittery.
Tom: No more teasing!
Gustav: Tom does that differently. (air guitar) The way we act here is the way we act everywhere; we talk big, we joke around, it doesn’t matter if we’re backstage at the Comets, in a cafe somewhere or rehersing.
Bill: They all bore me so much…
(Gustav masuages Bill)
Bill: Now this is relaxing.
Tom: Just to get this straight; Bill und Gustav are NOT gay.
2 mins till the nomination.
Nomination “Best Newcomer”
“Now it’s getting loud; the Comet for Best Newcomer 2006 goes to… Tokio Hotel!”
Bill: Wow, I’m so overwhelmed. I don’t think anyone was expecting this. Our life has changed so quickly, everything went so fast und just because of this one song, everything because of ‘Durch den Monsun’. We are so grateful for this… Oh God, I don’t know what to say… erm, thanks to all our family und friends, und of course a big thank you to you! Thank you so much!
Tom: Thank You!
Bill: Thank you for letting us experience this!
