It’s been almost 20 years since Star Academy landed on our screens. To celebrate this special anniversary, TF1 is offering an extraordinary program for October 30. Who will be the former candidates present?
We remember it like it was yesterday. On October 20, 2001, the French discovered the castle of Dammarie-les-Lys, the charisma of Nikos, endearing singing or dancing teachers, and candidates with dreams in their heads. The Star Academy began under the eyes of more than 5 million curious viewers, who discovered Jenifer, Mario, Jean-Pascal or Olivia. Nostalgia, when you hold us … To celebrate 20 years of France’s most watched variety show, TF1 prepared a exceptional show for the evening of saturday 30 october. Shot on the music scene and obviously hosted by Nikos, the program Star Academy: We said we’ll meet in 20 years is a real tribute to the tele hook that rocked a generation.
