Star Academy

I've got a bit behind with the goings-on in the chateau so I'm now trying to catch up. Last night's prime saw the remaining students all dressed up in their posh frocks and smart suits for the 'symphonic special' which featured a full live orchestra this week...


Again I didn't really see anything to sway my view that Alexia and Quentin will be there at the end, although I'm a bit shocked by Alexia's low marks this week. This week's guests included Roch Voisine, Faf Larage, Laam, Maurane - and the one and only Patrick Hernandez, king of the one-hit-wonders who duetted with Quentin on (what else but) "Born To Be Alive".

This week's nominees for eviction were Jeremy, Claire-Marie and Bertrand. No surprise that Jeremy was saved by the viewers...


...leaving the professional jury to decide whether to save Claire-Marie or Bertrand. Drum roll....

...oh, there's no eviction this week. Juror Passi announced that they'd decided not to evict this week because next week's prime is the annual "Speciale Tournee" and the viewers should be given the chance to choose who'll be on the tour. Yeah right. I've been watching this show long enough to know that this was probably done for another reason entirely.

If I had been a voting viewer in France I wouldn't have been too chuffed this week - they ask the viewers to save their favourite, only for the viewers to find that their least favourites are also saved!

I missed last week's prime (dedicated to Gregory Lemarchal) which featured the return of former Star Ac 4 students Hoda, Harlem, Karima and Radia. Here's a picture of them from last week's show:

Alexia must be so happy Maureen has left - she's the only girl left in with a chance now.

Did you hear about Cyril's album only getting to number 101? LOL! It kind of makes the whole show a complete farce if that's what the winner has to look forward to.

Yes LOL from me too at Cyril's album only reaching no.101. They chose the wrong winner last year, and the year before that. If they don't pick the right winner this year, I can't really see the show being around for much longer.
