Everything was played, in the home stretch, between the youngest and the dean of the show.
Before flying to the trophy, she sang "Vole" by Celine Dion.
Ultimate suspended moment that sealed the victory of Nour, 16, the youngest winner in the history of "The Voice".
The candidate for Florent Pagny's team succeeds this Saturday evening to Marghe, the winner of the previous season, and beats Mister Mat, 43, to the wire.
"I can not realize," she reacted.
The evening, marked by the return of Nikos Aliagas a week after having had to withdraw from the semi-finals, began with a collective cover of "Being up to it", by Emmanuel Moire.
No need for a decoder to capture the subliminal message addressed to the five finalists of season 11 of “The Voice” who will chain a solo song and a duet with a guest star.
At the height, the youngest of the contest, Nour, was really not sure to be.
Blame it on a vocal glitch that prevented her from training normally.
A small “gift” from production, it is she, Florent Pagny's protege, who gets the ball rolling.
His obsession: “Losing my voice live.
The (vocal) cord does not break: Nour even comes out of it rather with honors by taking up an extract from the soundtrack of the film “A Star is born”.
Bewitching Vike and Angèle
A star Is Born ?
"Each week, it takes two centimeters", ignites Nikos without knowing if he speaks metaphorically or not.
Florent Pagny, he hides his frustration badly.
“I know what she is capable of doing.
I've never had such a full, perfect voice.
But she has a throat injury… she couldn't do what she knows how to do so well.
It annoys me.
During his duet with Slimane, Nour gives his coach a smile.
“She regains all her power, it really makes me happy,” trumpets Pagny.
Small emotional sequence: a platinum disc is awarded to coach Florent for his album "L'Avenir", "which bears its name well", slips Nikos, in reference to the fight against cancer in which the historic juror of "The Voice”.
Make way for Vike, shy at first alongside Belgian pop star Angèle.
Together they sing "Ta Reine".
It takes a little time for the young 26-year-old from Versailles to cheer up next to the Walloon princess.
“A bewitching duo”, judges her coach Amel Bent who, incidentally, renames the Belgian singer “Andgèle”.
In the American way, just to put a little more glitter in an evening which unfolds its score without surprise.
Mister Mat starts with the pedal to the metal
Well, in the audience, we can see Cyril Lignac, the media manager of M 6. A sign that the main course is coming?
Mister Mat, the "young dean" of the show at the height of his 43 springs, kicks off with a cover of "When the music is good" bluesy and rocky that Garou would not have denied.
And the title of the best compliment of the evening is attributed to… her coach, Vianney.
“He is everything I would like to be in this business.
Hat that we always find screwed to the head of Mister Mat when singing with Mentissa, Vianney's candidate the previous season.
"Et bam" says the song composed by the coach
The former rugby player and ex-ski instructor slaloms between the stanzas, elegant, and transforms the test.
It's the most beautiful duet of the evening.
Loris in a trio with Bigflo and Oli
Caroline Costa, the finalist of Marc Lavoine's team with the false airs of Louane, sings, she, at first with Christophe Willem, her hit "Jacques said".
Without fault or surprise.
And a pretty image: the candidate and the star, hand in hand for long minutes once the song is over.
A song that “rocked me for so many years, thank you for this moment”, launches the candidate to Christophe Willem who, however, really does not look like François Hollande.
Fifth candidate for the title of “most beautiful voice in France”, Loris the rapper embarks on a duet… in the form of a trio: the candidate drafted twice by his “good fairy” Nolwenn Leroy sings “Sur la lune” with the two brothers Bigflo and Oli who complimented - but was there a bit of irony - Nikos' purple jacket.
"Aiming for the moon, it does not scare you", then tries the host.
We pretended we didn't hear the pun and the show continued.
Before the final sprint and the long corridor towards the final result, a relaxed parenthesis: the five coaches interrupt the thread of the program and sing "The Children of Piraeus", a nod to Greece to celebrate the 53rd birthday of Nikos Aliagas who launches in passing in a local choreography.
“I love you”, launches the presenter at the end of a season like no other on the emotional level.
