I don't make a secret of the fact that series 5 was my least favourite, as it seemed to be the most manipulative (and manipulated) of them all. Inevitably the most talented contestants - Alexia and Jean-Luc (IMHO) didn't make it to the final.
Thankfully, talent will eventually prevail. Alexia is now part of the cast of "Salut Joe", a musical based on the songs of French legend Joe Dassin. The interesting thing is that the main performers are all ex Star Ac contestants: Mario & Carine (series 1), Houcine & Anne-Laure (series 2) and Alexia & Pierre (series 5).
Nothing has been heard of Jean-Luc till now, but we have just discovered that from October 2007 he will be starring in the French adaptation of the musical "The Lion King".
And what about Magalie Vae? That would be another story....
