Gregory, you’re coming back to “Star Academy”, congratulations! First, quite simply, why did you agree to be part of the adventure again?
“I like teaching. I think it’s a job I do well and it’s useful. Not best used. And then, “Star Academy” is a chance to work with very good young talent and see them progress as quickly as possible in an exciting and effective context. We learn, we work, we perform on Sunday. We move on. “
What did you basically take from the 2021 edition? We saw that you were very emotional there. Did you learn things yourself?

All these candidates we know, all of them are new messengers of happiness.The journey they have made from a starting point to an end point should also give millions of people the courage to transcend themselves.What have I learned? I also learn how to help them.I also learn every day about the connection between the creation process and creating music and sharing the basic emotions that guide us.

“You should not try to be better than others. You should try to be audible, but every day, too, you should be as good as you can be. When you are able to do it consistently, you can begin to expect yourself to be surpassed. And the same is inspiring.”
Did your beautiful Julia (9 years old) suffer from “Star AC” mania last year? Did you see her performance and did she have any favorites among the candidates?
“Julia really likes ‘Star AC’. She watches almost everything every day and Sunday. She has crushes. She’s frustrated to see some candidates leave. On Monday morning, on her way to school, I often hear:” Daddy, why did you let him go? ” I text her sometimes during Sunday glasses. I suggested that he take note of this or that on the show coming after the break. I wanted this experience to be useful to her as well. She also calculated how many years it would take before she could qualify … “
