The Victoires de la Musique ceremony took place on Saturday evening at the Seine Musical in Paris.
The Victoires de la Musique ceremony was marked by a real consecration for Zaho de Sagazan who won four awards: female revelation, album of the year, stage revelation and original song of the year with her title “La symphonie des éclairs”. The artist, very touched by her awards, made several statements throughout the evening hosted by Léa Salamé and Cyril Féraud. She won four awards out of five nominations!
The artist knew how to touch the public with his right words, his poetry and his sensitivity. “I was born very sensitive, for a long time I thought it was bad to be sensitive… And then I discovered music… I realized that what I thought was my most greatest flaw in life was in fact my greatest quality” and to conclude as she does during her concerts: “To be sensitive is to be alive and you are never too alive”.
“To be sensitive is to be alive and you can never be too alive”

She notably dedicated her victory of Revelation to care workers and caregivers, firefighters, teachers, etc. “Congratulations to the people whose job it is to do good […] they have no Victory, well I’ll give it to you”. For a year, she was a care assistant in a nursing home before devoting herself entirely to music. An experience that allows him to “keep your feet on the ground” she confided during an interview.
‘It’s the Victory of sharing… There are borders that no longer serve any purpose… In our country, in music, there is something for everyone… I just tried to mix’
Beautiful moment all the same #Victoires2024

But the other big winner of this ceremony is undoubtedly rap, a musical genre which has long been shunned by the Victoire de Musique, which is readily accused of being among itself. This year : Aya Nakamuraabsent, was crowned female artist of the year, Gazo and Vianney were jointly crowned male artist of the year.
The victory of audiovisual creation is attributed to Shay for “Commando”, the male revelation goes to the singer Yame with his hit “Bécane”. Damso wins Concert of the Year with the “QALF Tour”!
The ceremony was also the occasion for a beautiful tribute to Bernard Laviliiers who received an honorary victory. Sandrine Bonnaire came to read a magnificent text about her journey but also their points in common with her father “who died of steel”.
