At the end of the final audition, five of them had already confirmed their place in the Academy and showed up for the rehearsals of the first variety show with rather light hearts.
“It’s just big fun, big fun that I have to sing with my gang of friends, literally,” says Laurie, one of the candidates whose place at the Academy is already assured.
The professors will therefore welcome to Waterloo the 15 academicians selected at the end of this first variety. They will guide them in a human and benevolent way through the next 12 weeks.
“I’m convinced that every time someone is going to have to leave us, it’s going to break my heart,” reveals Guylaine Tremblay, who acts as a teacher of interpretation with the new cohort.
As for him, the new animator of the Sunday varieties, Marc Dupré, does not hide his excitement and his nervousness at the dawn of this new challenge. “I never thought I would animate Star Academy a day in my life. I am a fan of the first show. I was this close to having a tattoo of Wilfred on my lower back! I like this!” he exclaims.
The very first varieties of Star Academy will pay tribute to Daniel Bélanger who will also share the stage with academicians and aspiring academicians this Sunday, 7 p.m., on TVA.
