I was just watching the finals of Star Academy (France), the winner is Mickels Rea. And the runner-up is the glamorous Alice (Alice au pays des merveilles – as she has often been attributed to).
It has been a great event, I have been watching them since the very first weeks of the “Star Ac“, as the french calls it. This 8th edition had some wonderful contestants, it was just “sublime”. The event featured many famous star artists for each rounds, namely Céline Dion, Madonna, Ricky Martin, 50cents, Avril Lavigne, Anastacia, Beyonce, Lorie, Jonas Brothers, Craig David, Sheryfa luna, Robyn Rihanna Fenty, Christophe Mae, amongst others.
What Is Star Academy?
Quoted from Wiki:
Star Academy is a French reality tv show produced by the Dutch company Endemol, based on the Spanish format called Operación Triunfo. It consists of a contest of young singers. It spawned an equally successful show in Quebec called Star Académie. It is broadcast on TF1. At the end of each season, selected contestants go on tour around France, Morocco, Switzerland, Belgium, Tunisia, and other French-speaking countries. The contestants stay in the Dammarie-lès-Lys castle : The Vives-Eaux castle. The reality show is hosted by Nikos Aliagas.

The 2 Finalists Mickels And Alice Work Hard
– Both Mickels and Alice were not expected to be finalists based on their starting performances. I remember that Alice was saved by public voting 5 times! But since then she has been working seriously and she just kept getting better and better, just as Mickels. been watching their daily work on “Canale Evenement” – which gives you live videos of almost ALL the ‘doings’ of contestants, even when they are sleeping.
Anyway, it was a great moment watching Star Academy 2008 for all these weeks (16 weeks?). Seeing their progress and daily nitty-gritty, coupled with the advice of so many experienced artists, it’s just inspiring and motivating – if you can dream it and put in the required effort, you can surely be a winner!
My favorite was infact Anissa, she has a wonderful voice and she’s just gorgeous; ‘tres belle francaise’. 😀 How about you, have you been watching them, who was your favorite?
