MUSIC – As always there were disappointed people, happy people and surprised people. They rocked the Palais des Festivals de Cannes on Friday, November 10. Louane, Mika, Kendji Girac, Vianney, Slimane who will soon represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest, Vitaa, Claudio Capéo, Zazie, actress Isabelle Adjani, Gaëtan Roussel, Bigflo & Oli, Mc Solaar, Jain and Kyo provided the show during the 25th NRJ Presentation of the Music Awards. It was the Måneskin group that got the ball rolling during this 100% Eurovision start to the evening. As conductor of the show broadcast on TF1, Nikos Aliagas took over directing this year after leaving it to Camille Combal last year due to an injury.
In addition to the surprise scenes of celebrities such as Ed Sheeran or Puff Daddy and the fiery performances on stage, the evening was above all an opportunity to award numerous prizes to the nominated artists who have left their mark on music this year on a commercial and critical level . . These include regular customers who already have one or more statues at home, but also newcomers.
