The public was back in the Seine Musicale hall this Friday for the 37th edition of the Victoires de la Musique, which opened with a ballet danced to “The Show Must Go On” by Queen, then on the performance of the honorary president of the ceremony, Stromae, who made the public dance on “Health“, assisted by an animated avatar.

This ceremony saw the coronation of the rapper Orelsan with three Victories, that of the male artist of the year and that of the audiovisual creation for the documentary of his brother Clément, “Show never that to anyone”. He was also the recipient of the Original Song of the Year Victory, an award given by the public, for “The smell of gasoline“.

Five award-winning artists and unusual live performances

I often realize a little late when I am in great moments of happiness, but there it is so strong that I dare to say it: I am very very very happy.

As every year, the ceremony saw its unusual live performances : Angèle on a giant waffle, Julien Doré on a boat on the Seine Musicale, or even Hervé, who entered the stage in a van in the colors of his tour – he was nominated in the Best Tour category. The Empress, with her little garden, and Myd, in her children’s room populated by animated stuffed animals, completed the range of original performances.

Hoshi’s performance also touched the audience: she interpreted “Let me know“, a song dedicated to his partial deafness, accompanied by a dancer who interpreted, in sign language, the words of the song.

The diversity in question

And like every year too, the Victories are not without questions about musical diversity or gender categories.. On this subject, and while this week the Brit Awards took place with mixed categories, the president of the Victoires de la Musique association, Stéphane Espinosa, said: “There is a real global reflection to be had. I personally think it’s a bit early: I see, in what I get as a producer, I want there to be more girls, especially in urban music. We have a big job to do. We still need that a bit to get to one day having a unified category.” “When there is such a distortion between men and women, only measures based on parity, authoritarian measures, can balance“, added the Minister of Culture, Roselyne Bachelot.

In addition to Orelsan, only two artists represented rap and urban music, Aya Nakamura and SCH, respectively awarded with the Victories of the most streamed female artist and male artist. If the first was absent from the ceremony, the second held, when receiving his prize, to quote the other rappers of the moment, such as Jul, Naps or Soso Maness, none of whom was named, and said to himself “a little embarrassed” to be on stage without them. A little more everything on France Inter, he had declared: “It’s a victory for us rappers to be able to be here, it’s an important ceremony for us (…). A lot of artists deserve their presence here. When we receive awards like that, we are always proud to be invited to this type of evening
