Victoires de la musique: Biolay and Sanson lead the nominations – The Point

Benjamin Biolay and Véronique Sanson, vying each in two major categories, lead the nominations for the Victoires de la musique, whose 32nd edition will take place on 10 February at the Zenith of Paris, according to the selection unveiled on Tuesday.

Nominated in the category “male artist” of the year, Benjamin Biolay will face a tough competition in the face of Renaud, author of a return with a bang last year with his eponymous album, which has been the most sold in France (730.000 sales, streaming included). The third named is Vincent Delerm for his sixth disc studio “now”.

To Benjamin Biolay to point to the possibility of a doubled, since it is also nominated for “album of songs”. His album recorded in Argentina, “Palermo Hollywood” will have to face it “&” of Julien Doré and The “catch a dream” by Christophe Maé.

Veronique Sanson may also be a double hit. The singer, aged 67 years, is nominated in the category “female artist”, alongside two young outsiders who sing in English : Jain, the revelation of the summer festivals with its pop music-world, and Imany, inspirations soul.

The single “And I still call”, as Véronique Sanson has dedicated to his mother, competes in the category “original song of the year”, the only one that will be determined by the vote of the public. “I’m going to” Vianney, the winner of the previous edition (artist in 2016), “I searched for” Amir, finalist of The Voice in 2013, and “kele nta” the rapper MHD, have what compete, each with his audience in a clean and number.

The vote is open from Tuesday 20: 50 until 10 February, on the internet sites of France 2, France Inter and Victories of the music.

In this category, as in most others, reflects the aspect of “a very open, eclectic, intergenerational” Victories, according to its president, Laurent Didailler, questioned by AFP.

The sprint race promises to be tight in the category of rock between Louise Attack (“Fault”), The Woman (“Mystery”) and Mickey 3D (“Sebolavy”).

The category of “electronic Music or dance”, which sees the veteran Jean-Michel Jarre, the young house dj Kungs and the duo confirmed Justice compete, is another example of diversity at all levels, style and age. Ditto for the “urban Music” with half of NTM, Kool Shen, to the sides of Jul, the artist, the more “streamé” in France for the past two years, and Georgio, also revealed via the internet.

organizers have announced on Tuesday the nominees in all twelve categories on the basis of the votes of 600 professionals representing the music sector (artists, producers, media, record stores, agents).

The 32nd edition is placed under the sign of “the open mind”, explained Laurent Didailler, who is also the director general of the label PIAS. “The creation of music breaks the barriers, at a time when there is talk of decline on many levels,” he said.

The ceremony, broadcast live on France 2, will be in addition to a number of tributes to the great artists that have disappeared in 2016 (David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Prince).
