This is already seven years that the castle of the Star Academy has closed its doors. Yet, the show is always so much to talk about today. Last February, Georges-Alain Jones had assured him during an interview in Paris that the famous talent show was rigged. Statements on which the winner of the season 5 Magalie Vaé is returned during an interview for Non Stop People.
According to the singer of 33 years, it would have been difficult for the production to rig the votes : “to Rig the votes by telephone, it is very complicated. There’s even a bailiff. If the votes were really rigged, I don’t think I would have won because I wasn’t the favorite,” said Magalie Vaé. She admits, however, from our colleagues that the prod’ could doubtless influence the votes of viewers : “After that, it’s like in all reality tv, from the moment there is a contest, there are images that pass and some of the images may encourage candidates and not others, it is more in that sense. (…) I don’t know for all the Star Ac, because I did not quite follow, but I know that, for me, a week ago when I was there, where I have no view at all, even my parents did not know what I was going to sing at a premium, so there it is.”
Recall that Georges-Alain had confided, “I discovered that it is me and Emma Daumas, who had to go to the final. It was decided even before the show ! I flipped out and the producers have organized my elimination in the semi-final, because I threatened to any swing. My problem is that I was older than the other candidates and that I had understood the inner workings.” Of about quickly refuted by Alexia Laroche-Joubert, a former producer of the Star Academy, or by former candidates such as Jean-Pascal Lacoste or Sofiane.
For his part, the former teacher of theatrical expression based Raphaëlle Ricci was explained on the occasion of a live with former that, if the production had indeed rigged the votes, “it was jolly well done”. “There may have been things… I had become friends with the ushers, I was very curious, I asked questions… I wanted to know how this happened. Honestly, I’ve never really been able to know clearly. In any case, not on the first season”, she had, however, qualify.
