This Wednesday, January 25 in prime time, the famous M6 singing show is making a comeback. The channel is banking on the nostalgic power of the program, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2023.
This is a show that should bring back fond memories for an entire generation. After the return of Cafe Camera the day before, M6 took another of its flagship programs out of the closet. The channel has indeed announced the great return of the New Star for two evening events on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. They will be broadcast on Wednesdays February 15 and 22.
To celebrate this anniversary, M6 is betting on nostalgia with references galore for telecrochet fans. Starting with the reformation of the mythical quartet of the jury composed of Marianne James, Dove Attia, Manu Katché and André Manoukian. The evening will also mark the great return of candidates revealed by the show such as Christophe Willem, Myriam Abel or Steeve Estatof who have all won their respective seasons.
Julien Doré, one of the most outstanding winners of the Nouvelle Star will also be back. And he has a nice surprise in store for the fans since he will replay his crazy audition (during which he was dismissed by the jury before even singing, then recalled).
To rekindle viewers’ memories, the broadcaster will also bring out the show’s cult credits and broadcast numerous magnetos of the most memorable moments. The former presenter of the show will also be present, but she will leave the controls of the anniversary show to Karine le Marchand. The Baltard pavilion, the traditional filming location for the Nouvelle Star, has also been abandoned due to a lack of available dates.
Despite these small changes and the few wrinkles that the program has taken, this anniversary celebrated with great fanfare should delight those nostalgic for the golden age of telecrochets. Before perhaps returning for a brand new season, like Star Academy in November?
