And the big winner of the tenth season of “The Voice” is… A winner: Marghe, 21 years old.

The talent of Florent Pagny's team obtained a majority of the votes, against Jim Bauer, who nevertheless started as the favorite.
“When I arrived on this plateau, I had already won everything, loose Marghe, almost stunned.
Excuse me, I don't have the words.
Thanks to the audience.
Thanks to the coaches.
Thank you Florent for believing in me.
»« Ah bah, here!
», Savors Pagny, who is on his third trophy.
Marghe won the title, after a final performance: a composition entitled "Forget everything", written in the middle of the night. “It looks like the credits of a James Bond”, enthuses Amel Bent. It was one of the novelties of this particular season in the absence of an audience. “Unveiling one of their songs is a way of showing who they will be after
explained artistic producer Pascal Guix. Jim Bauer, he opted for "Crossroads", a title refused by record companies.
Before the final duel, Marghe had to pass a first dam, against Jim Bauer, but also Cyprien and Mentissa Aziza, whose elimination made jazz on social networks. The future winner took the stage all in white. "I started with a kid, I end with a diva," said Florent Pagny, in the preamble. She chose “My old man” by Daniel Guichard in tribute to her grandfather, who recently died when she could not go to his funeral because of sanitary measures. The cord is sensitive, the voice deep, powerful. “The four can win, but Marghe has shown such an evolution, then underlines Pagny. She has the soul of a warrior. "His second appearance is with London Grammar, on" Wasting my young years ". Quite a symbol. It is this title, selected by Mika in 2014 for two candidates from his team,which made this group popular in France. The winning combo.
Cyprien and Mentissa believed in it
At the very beginning of the evening, Cyprien, in a black tuxedo, opened the ball with “I have nothing”, Whitney Houston's interplanetary hit.
“One of the most difficult songs,” Amel Bent pressured him.
The four jurors ended up standing.
“Elegance, delicacy, presence and accuracy,” commented Nikos Aliagas, who then spoke to his coach.
"Amel, why might Cyprien be The Voice 2021?"
»Answer:« What he sings, it puts me in a state of fullness, almost of trance.
It pierces my heart.
Everything you've done Cyprien since your blind audition… I love you, I vote for you.
"It's up to him to follow up on" If I was there ", in a duet with Louane.
It is beautiful and simple.
Maybe a little too much.
She had drawn tears from Vianney in the semifinals. This time, it's chills that Mentissa Aziza gave us by covering “We are the world”, by Michael Jackson. "A song that speaks of benevolence," said the candidate. That sums up “The Voice” well. These thirteen weeks have changed my life. Now I know I was born to make music. "Ouch ouch ouch, says Vianney even before the last note. I want to say thank you. A few minutes on stage are hours of rehearsal. "" But what's going on in your head? »Nikos Aliagas asked him. Mentissa Aziza: “I am very Zen. For me, I have already won. I just want to have fun. There she is again with Grand Corps ill. Together, they shine soberly singing "Derrière le brouillard", with Mosimann on the keyboard.Quentin Mosimann, therefore, almost unrecognizable thirteen after having won “Star Academy”.
But the performances that everyone expected, it is those of Jim Bauer, first qualified for the final last Saturday. It will be after the ad, making him the cash machine of the evening: € 60,000 gross for the 30-second spot, 25% cheaper than in 2020. “We worked like dogs, you deserve to win. I will miss you, ”Marc Lavoine slipped backstage. For his "end of the cruise", the young musician in a red bathrobe offered a version on the line of "Tout va bien" from Orelsan. Broken voice, strength of interpretation and killer gaze "as in a movie scene". Inhabited, magnetic, original, Jim Bauer was far above. Unless some bad luck? "Do not hesitate to close your umbrella, these are old superstitions lying around", intervened Nikos Aliagas, a little conspicuous on this one.“He is someone very shy, who weighs his words, caught up with his coach. A creative, a lively skinny. "He proved it again on" The fireworks ", in a duet with Calogero. "He is an artist, that's what makes all the difference," observed the singer.
That was for the best. But there is also a nice wrong note, the “motion capture” sequence. In place of the real Kendji Girac, it is his avatar who appeared on stage to sing his title “Obviously” with the four finalists. Except that there was nothing obvious at all. “We've never seen that,” Nikos warned. And we quickly understood why. It was failed, grotesque, phony. What ignites Twitter. “I hope next year we won't all be avatar and unemployed,” added the star presenter. Little risk, Considering the criticisms of the televiewers,.
