Star Academy: brief review of this week's prime

Finally got to see this week’s prime. Guests - Florent Pagny, Marc Lavoine, David Guetta, Michael Buble, Alicia Keys, Shy’m.

Quentin and Alexia are still good, but two things to mention here: 1) how cheesy was Quentin’s "Dreams Are My Reality" song?, and 2) whoever did Alexia’s hair this week should be shot.

Overrated: Pierre & Bertrand.

Dark horse: Jeremy. He's good, and he is cute, but he is far too young (in age and appearance) to win this competition.

The wonderful-ness of Quentin continues: his "Mr and Mrs Jones" duet with Michael Buble (is he doing the rounds of reality pop shows this week??), was a little over-indulgent but very good.
Haven't seen evaluations yet, but Antoine, Lucie and Claire-Marie are now on very thin ice. Expect two of these to be nominated this week along with the usual Mathieu :-)
Quentin and Maureen remain my favourites...

What was that song Quentin did? It sounded familiar but I didn't know what it was.

I fear Bertrand is gonna walk it judging by audience reaction.

I thought Alexia looked hot btw! She looks slimmer, I wonder if she's lost weight

Went over to YouTube to check this song out - it looks like a big ol' slab of 80s cheese, sung by some guy called Richard Sanderson, who I've never heard of.

Bertrand: I liked him in the beginning, but the novelty has now worn off.
