Nolwenn Leroy, big winner of Star Academy season 2
Remember, it was only the second edition of the hottest musical reality TV show in France at the moment. The principle was simple: a little more than a dozen young people filled with talent integrate the castle of Dammarie-les-Lys where they will closely follow the courses of experienced teachers in the artistic environment. Singing, choreography, public speaking and theater… the days followed each other, but were not alike. Every Saturday night live, during the primes, they competed on stage to keep only one at the end of the show: the big winner of Star Academy. And it was in 2002 that Nolwenn Leroy, aged 20, won the second edition.
” Every other Saturday, we saw your panties on the screen “: Nolwenn Leroy remembers the Star Academy bonuses
It was exclusively on Télé-Loisirs that the behind-the-scenes extracts from the show were first revealed. It was during an impromptu dinner with his former Star Academy comrades and his former singing teacher on the show, Armande Altaï, that Nolwenn remembered the ” small clothing pans “. She returns in particular to her outfits, sometimes criticized, during the bonuses of the singing competition. ” There was always the one who wore the miniskirt »she tells the guests of the show, before adding: “ And we obviously knew that with the low-angle shots, every other Saturday we saw your panties on the screen “. This helped create moments of discomfort on the screen, especially at a time when reality TV shows, with young talents unaccustomed to the complexity of the world of celebrities, were just beginning to settle in France.
