Gérard LOUVIN - Président of Jury
The very young Gérard LOUVIN, passionate about shows in every form, could only dream of starting his career beside Claude François, for whom he would be the artistic director for several years. He would later begin to produce artists, in particular Florent PAGNY, Michel LEEB and many others. With Daniel MOYNE, he created the company GLEM and took his first steps into the world of television, notably with SACRÉE SOIRÉE for more than seven years. Director of STAR ACADEMY, he would then join MISS FRANCE on TF1 and create the NRJ AWARDS in Cannes. He would also initiate DANSE AVEC LES STARS on TF1. Gérard Louvin is also the producer of several theatrical pieces and musical comedies. In 2002, he also produced a firework display at the Eiffel Tower on 14 July. A former hotel and catering school pupil, he would create the famous restaurant club ARC and the BOBINO cabaret.
Initially he was Gérard LOUVIN’s assistant with Claude FRANCOIS. Claude FRANCOIS asked him to work several months later on the development of the magazine PODIUM, which led him as a journalist to work with the Daniel FILIPACCHI group (Salut les copains, Ok magazine). Other wonderful artistic adventures in radio, television and shows began for the two friends through the production company GLEM. For more than seven years he would schedule more than 12 singers every week for the famous programme SACRÉE SOIRÉE. At the same time, Daniel Moyne wrote for television series and for several singers as a writer and composer. He was the artistic director of musical comedies such as ROMEO AND JULIET and the author of BELLES, BELLES, BELLES. In 2011, he composed SOGNU for AMAURY VASSILI, who defended France in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Antoine PIERINI was born in Antibes in 1981 to a family of artists. Pioneers of the “Studio Glass Mouvement Français”, his father, Robert Pierini, his uncle and his aunt, Alain and Marysa Begou, and even his cousin Xavier Carrère were among the most famous French glassmakers and restored the reputation of the art of glassblowing between the 1980s and 2000. During his teenage years, Antoine watched the small world of glass through exhibitions and travel. In his father’s school, he learned the basics of the technique and the working gestures of glass-blowing, and discovered the pleasure of mastering this molten matter. The artist takes on a sculptural world in a refined style. His art and his passion for glass, is expressed by imagining fascinating works, both in terms of their colours and their shape, inspired by the heritage left by mankind. His approach is inspired by the Mediterranean cultural heritage.
Vanessa Valence is a French actress, known above all for having played Fred since 2009 in the series Profilage, and this for the first 5 seasons.

After providing the dubbed voice for Claire Holt’s character in the German Australian series H2O for one season, she moved via Section de recherche before joining the cast of Alexandre Arcafy’s film Tu peux garder un secret (2008) in which she had a small role.
