everything you need to know about the ceremony

Rapper SCH and singer Aya Nakamura are the first two winners of this 37and edition, chaired by Stromae. To be continued tonight from 9 p.m.

Who will leave this year with one or more Victoires de la Musique? To find out, see you on Friday for this 37and edition which will take place at the Seine Musicale in Boulogne-Billancourt. Chaired by Stromae, who will perform on stage for the occasion, the ceremony will be broadcast live on France 2 and France Inter from 9:10 p.m. and will be presented by the duo Laury Thilleman and Olivier Minne.

Like last year, the Victoires de la Musique are organized around eight categories: Male Artist, Female Artist, Male Revelation, Female Revelation, Album, Original Song, Concert and Audiovisual Creation. But a little novelty is added to this 2022 edition: the prize for the most “streamed” title, awarded last year to the song Do not come back by rappers Gradur and Heuss l’Enfoiré, is extended this year to the most “streamed” album. In addition, it is split into a male and female version, of which we already know the big winners. This is the rapper SCH for his fifth album Jvlivs II and singer Aya Nakamura for her third album Ayah, which had over 12 million downloads just four days after its release.

This 37and edition marks the return of the Concert category, which due to the Covid-19 pandemic, was canceled last year. It will take into account the two previous years and designate the winner from among Ben Mazué, Hervé and Woodkid. This ceremony will also be the occasion, as for each edition, to award the Victory of Honor. After the presentation, last year, of this special prize to Jane Birkin, it is Jacques Dutronc who will receive this statuette on Friday. A symbolic attribution for the singer, who after four years spent in the shadows will go back on stage in the spring, for the first time with his son Thomas.

To know the name of the other winners, it will therefore be necessary to wait until Friday evening. But two candidates dominate the nominations, they are Orelsan and Clara Luciani. They both compete in four categories each, including: Artist, Original Song, Album of the Year and Audiovisual Creation. With over 335,000 copies sold, this is the album Civilization of the 39-year-old rapper who is named, alongside Heart , composed by the 29-year-old singer, who ranks eleventh in sales for the year 2021 with 155,000 copies. The group Fire! Chatterton then comes second with three nominations, like singer Juliette Armanet. As for the Male Revelation and Female Revelation categories, eagerly awaited each year, they highlight L’Impératrice, Barbara Pravi and Silly Boy Blue on the women’s side and black dog, Myd and Terrenoire on the men’s side.

For this 2022 edition, the public votes in three categories: Original song, Concert and Audiovisual creation. The votes were open until Thursday 8 p.m. on the France Télévisions site. For the other categories, the votes go to a college of voters, which brings together 900 people among professionals in the music industry and so-called “outside the music industry”, who were chosen on the basis of a cover letter.
