Whilst the The Brit Awards are coming around quickly (i.e. this Saturday 24th February), last Friday France was awarding its pop artists.
You could see on their faces the joy of being recognised by the industry. There were those who, too modest or moved, to remained impassive as Louane. The singer just held her trophy against her heart and made a really touching speech.
Conversely, there were those not even trying to contain their joy and roll on the ground like Santa from Hyphen Hyphen, definitely not the shy type!
Others had tearful eyes as they couldn’t believe it like Yael Naim.
There were also those who make short speeches, those who made engaged speech such as Nekfeu who spoke of a refugee charity, a cause that is close to his heart.
Finally, we had those like The Innocents who received an award after 20 years of absence.
In short, the 31th ceremony of the Victoires de la Musique, last Friday was full of emotions with a wide variety of artists from the past and current!
Here are their winning songs, enjoy!
