On this Tuesday in February, in the studios of “Don't forget the lyrics”, at Plaine-Saint-Denis (Seine-Saint-Denis), it's time to party.
Between two traditional broadcasts, Nagui, his orchestra and his “ambianceurs” are preparing to put in a box the 5000th of the musical game of France 2, broadcast this Thursday at 6:50 pm.
Behind the scenes, we can meet two well-known faces.
On the one hand, Margaux, the greatest maestro of the program, with 530,000 euros won in 59 victories.
On the other hand, Kevin, second best champion, 410,000 euros pocketed in 43 games won.
If both of them feel at home on the set, stress is in order.
For this anniversary number, they're not just playing for fun.
The winnings will be donated to the Association française du Symptôme de Fatigue Chronique (ASFC), a gesture in honor of Faustine Nogherotto, ex-candidate of the "Star Academy" of TF 1 in 2006 then of "Don't forget the lyrics ”ten years later, passed away at the end of January.
“It was obvious.
And I had promised his family to pay tribute to him, ”explains Nagui.
Surprise for the occasion, the arrival of distinguished guests.
Kendji Girac, Vianney, Claudio Capéo and Pascal Obispo have agreed to share duets with Margaux and Kevin without batting an eyelid.
“I only contacted them.
And all said yes right away, ”welcomes the host.
“I find it hard to say no to my friends,” admits Vianney.
Its shows are important for music.
"There is a moment when you have to give up your place ..."
For his part, Claudio Capéo made the round trip between Paris and the Moselle for this wink.
“It's always a pleasure to be able to work a little bit,” laughs the artist.
And then it's fun to rediscover the lyrics.
Even I, after a year of being non-essential, I was stressed out not to remember!
On the set, however, no forgotten texts.
On the contrary, one of the artists even slips, without doing it on purpose, a response.
All in good humor.
Nagui: "I stop Everyone wants to take their place"
What would encourage Nagui to plan ahead and consider 5,000 other programs?
“I don't think I could do it.
That would mean continuing for another ten years.
There is a moment when you have to give up your place, he concedes.
I would like to see a new generation that takes a long time to arrive.
"That fans of the game (nearly 5 million) rest assured, the shutdown is not scheduled for tomorrow.
"It's a crazy success, I never imagined that," smiles the host.
You should take advantage.
