Hard blow for the owner of "The Voice".
A few hours before the semi-final, this Saturday, May 14, from the Lendit studio (Seine-Saint-Denis), the first live broadcast of the season, Nikos Aliagas had to throw in the towel, victim of a health.
To replace him at short notice, TF 1 and the company ITV, which manages the production, called on Alessandra Sublet.
The host told us a few days ago that she wanted to stop the presentation to devote herself to comedy and fiction.
However, she sees herself propelled to the controls of the show for one evening.
A natural choice when a solution had to be found in a few hours.
First absence for Nikos Aliagas
Alessandra Sublet is a regular at big cathodic entertainment.
Before taking over from Nikos Aliagas in the daily "C'est Canteloup", every weekday at 9 p.m., which she will stop at the end of the season, we remember that she notably carried the show “Incredible talent” on M 6, the “Victoires de la musique” on France 2, or even recently “Mystery duos” on TF 1. Neither the production, nor the channel, nor the two animators wished to make further comments. on this last minute replacement.
Nikos Aliagas, who celebrated his 53rd birthday this Friday, must therefore give up his microphone as the music program resumes live after many weeks of blind auditions and other super cross battles recorded several months ago.
An appointment where we will find with emotion Florent Pagny, who is treating lung cancer and gave reassuring news this week on Instagram.
The host has never missed an episode of "The Voice" since its launch in France in 2012, and never even prime time since 2001 when he arrived on TF 1 to present "Star Academy".
It should be back on the air next week for the grand finale.
