The 37th edition of the Victoires de la Musique took place on Friday February 11, on the stage of the Seine Musicale. A ceremony which saw the expected triumph of Orelsan and Clara Luciani.

As expected, Orelsan is the big winner of this 37th edition with three Victories: that of the song of the year, the artist of the year and the audiovisual creation for “Never show that to anyone”, the documentary directed in particular by his brother, Clément Cotentin. His album, “Civilization”, released in November, became in just two months the best-selling record in France in 2021.

“I don’t know what to say, it’s phew”, dropped the Caen rapper. Now with nine Victoires de la Musique, at 39, Orelsan is getting closer to the two award record holders: -M- and Alain Bashung, who have won thirteen Victoires.

Clara Luciani was crowned female artist of the year and won album of the year with ” Heart “. “I am super moved. I felt a jolt hearing my name. I couldn’t have asked for more”she confided.

The SCH embarrassment

The Victories would not be the Victories without controversy. This year, including OrelSan, Clara Luciani, Juliette Armanet and the group Feu! Chatterton, we arrived at fourteen nominations between four artists. This raises criticism of a ceremony accused of not reflecting the diversity of the current scene.

Honorary President and Star

The other attraction of the evening was the honorary president. Stromae interpreted his title ” Health “ with an avatar, opening the ceremony. This double of the Belgian, like an animated film on the giant screens behind him, thus showed the public the gestures to be made on the choreography of the piece.

Stromae’s performance gives a foretaste of the launch of its event tour, which should revolve around paintings and make use of new technologies. “Multitude”, his new album, one of the most anticipated of the year, will be released on March 4. But as the Belgian does nothing like everyone else, he will deliver his new songs in preview during his first three shows in Brussels on February 22, Paris on February 24 and Amsterdam on February 27. The tickets for these three concerts were sold out in 15 minutes on the day they went on sale on December 3, his record company had said.
