Michael lane was not always the shy and reserved type he is now in the casting show "the voice of germany the audience appeared. In fact, until six years ago, when he had to go to war for the first time for the u.S. Army, he was a very funny person, who also does crazy things spontaneously from time to time. "When we were kids, mike was always allowed to choose cornflakes at our grandma's house, says matthias neuner, the cousin of the talented singer. "But he didn't want to give me any of it. That's why he always grabbed the pack and climbed up on the roof of my grandparents' house so I couldn't get at it. He knew exactly that I was afraid of climbing after him."
Even later, the half-american was always good for an entertaining interlude. At the graduation party of niner's girlfriend stefanie niebler, for example, michael stood on a ping-pong table when all the guests were about to leave and performed a piece from an italian opera. "There were about 200 people, and all the people who had already left turned around and came back", tells niner. And during a visit to a disco together, the 26-year-old is said to have suddenly danced naked on a podium. "And by that I mean really naked, he didn't even have any underpants on anymore," says, neuner reports with a smile.
