Les Victoires de la Musique 2012


It was announced, during the end of the last week, the nominees for this year’s edition of the award Les Victoires de la Musique.

Since in 2010 and 2011, I’ve been doing some predictions in my Portuguese blog, I guess this became some sort of tradition (which I’m now doing in English). I only listed below the categories I’m interested in. In case you want to see the whole list, just click here.

So here’s my predictions for this year’s big winners. My predictions are the ones in bold.

The award ceremony will be held March, 3. Let’s wait and see!

Best Male Artist
Benjamin Biolay
Julien Clerc*
Thomas Dutronc
Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine

* I’m ALWAYS cheering for Biolay, but I have a strong feeling that Clerc will be the winner this year.

Best Female Artist
Catherine Ringer
Nolwenn Leroy

* where is Coeur de Pirate in this list?

Best new artist (people’s choice)
Inna Modja

Best new artist
Alexis HK*
Skip the Use

* Honestly, I don’t understand why Alexis HK is listed here, since he’s not new. At All. But since his name in this list is so odd, I’m betting he’s gonna win.

Camille – “Ilo veyou”Coeur de Pirate – “Blonde”*
Catherine Ringer – “Ring N’ Roll”
Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine – “Suppléments de mensonge”
