‘La France a un incroyable talent’ Returns

10/08/2019, France

Season 14 of the French edition of “Got Talent” will launch on October 22. For the first time, M6 will cooperate with the short video app TikTok to get the viewers up on stage – at least virtually. Otherwise, the ingredients for the successful recipe of the show launched in 2006 have not changed – and for good reason…


Even in season 14, it remains the only show that brings art in all genres and facets up on stage and to screens: “La France a un incroyable talent”. The French edition of the international Fremantle show “Got Talent” will launch a new season on M6 on October 22 at 9:05 p.m. Once again, dancers and singers, comedians and magicians, acrobats and animal trainers, jugglers and poets, and many other artists will compete on stage for the title of “incredible talent 2019” – just like they have done in this successful M6 show since 2006, year after year. And just as always, it pays off: last year’s winner Jean-Baptiste Guégan landed a No.1 album after the show. Frank Zapata, winner of 2013, flew across the British Channel with his Flyboard this year. Marina Kaye, who won season 12 at the age of 13, has 80 million video views on Youtube today. And Zurchardoc, who was among the finalists in the same season, went on to the next competition and became the runner-up of “America’s Got Talent”.


Now, the big question is who will follow in their footsteps, who will convince the jury of their talent in just two minutes starting October 22. The judges are Éric Antoine, Marianne James, Sugar Samy and Hélène Ségara. “La France a un incroyable talent” will once again be hosted by David Ginola. M6 recorded the best season in seven years with Ginola as the show’s host in 2018: 3.7 million viewers on average watched each individual episode. The audience share amounted to 16 percent among the total viewership, and 22 percent in the target group of women under 50 in charge of household management, which is especially relevant for advertisers. The successful recipe of “Incroyable talent” remains unchanged in season 14. The contestants need to get a “Yes” from at least three of the four judges to go on to the next round – or the golden buzzer from one of the judges or host to be directly catapulted into the final, where the best 13 talents will compete. The winner will take home a prize of €100,000.


This year, the cooperation of M6 with the Chinese company Bytedance’s short video app TikTok is new: those who demonstrate their own artistic talent via the app in a video clip will have an opportunity to be invited to the final of “La France a un incroyable talent” as an assistant. TikTok has designed a special backdrop for this purpose, enabling the young users of the app to get up on the stage of the big TV show – at least virtually – to produce a video. The #LFAUITChallenge will be launched on October 17 by David Ginola, Donel Jack’sman, and former “Incroyable Talent” winners.  (Source benet)
