The “Star Academy” is preparing its big comeback on TF1. If there are still many unknowns about this new season – the 10th of the program – we now know the name of the new director of the castle. According to information from Le Parisien, it is Michael Goldman, son of Jean-Jacques Goldman, who will take control of the show.
The 10ᵉ season of “Star Academy”, a program which will make its big comeback on TF1 in the coming weeks, has a new director: Michael Goldman, son of Jean-Jacques Goldman and producer of Joyce Jonathan and Grégoire, among others. According to information from Le Parisien, the 43-year-old artist has not yet signed his contract with the production company Endemol, but his presence is recorded. He will therefore be the new director of the castle, a position formerly occupied by Alexia Laroche-Joubert, Nathalie André, Gérard Louvin or Armande Altaï.
Quoting a source close to the show, Le Parisien reveals the reasons for this choice: “Once the name was mentioned, it was obvious. He is 43 years old, he knows the music world like the back of his hand, he is enthusiastic about the project, he has a good face… And then the name Goldman, that will necessarily help, let’s face it, ”writes the French media.
The return of Nikos
Another certainty concerning this new season of “Star Ac’”: Nikos Aliagas will resume his role as host. The daily program should be broadcast on weekdays on TF1, around 5:30 p.m., before the series “Here everything begins” and “Tomorrow belongs to us”, specifies RTL. On the other hand, we do not yet know the exact date of the return of the program to the antenna nor the day chosen to broadcast the famous weekly prime time.
Students and teachers
Obviously, no information concerning the casting of the new candidates has been revealed. We only know that last May, when registration opened, the production company Endemol France received no less than 10,000 applications in just 48 hours. As for the casting of the teachers, the surprise will also be total. The only name that circulates en masse in the media: that of Denitsa Ikonomova, famous dancer of “Dancing with the Stars”, who could take over the role of Kamel Ouali.
