A special season for Florent Pagny
Florent Pagny has a hard time choosing between June and Morgane. Eventually, the singer decides to keep Morgane for the rest of the adventure. But at the time of June’s elimination, he cannot hide his sadness, he regrets hurting the talented young singer. “I’m in a certain season,” he then explains. ” In fact, there are many strange talents. And I have a lot of weird talents on my team. I’m drawn to that strangeness.” he said tearfully. It’s Morgane’s strangeness that takes over: “You have a real natural emotion.”
Shortly after the episode aired (as a reminder, the fights are not live but recorded), host Nikos Aliagas decided to pay a very personal tribute to The Voice’s coach. He therefore shared a black and white photo of the artist (the 50 Minutes Inside host’s trademark) on Twitter and wrote the following words: ” How do we love you hermano (brother in Spanish, editor’s note)“.
Florent Pagny affected by the disease
Hard to miss in Florent Pagny’s tears and his words (“special season”) hints at his illness. Because while recording The Voice, the singer found out about an inoperable tumor in her lungs. Amel Bent recalls with emotion the day the coaches heard the news:
“Of course we were with him. It’s a little touching… Because it’s true that it wasn’t easy. But what I remember is that my friend Florent Pagny, he is indeed a warrior and he has returned there because he is the Taulier”.
The singer then decided not to talk about his illness, preferring to learn more and know exactly how to follow. But when he realizes he won’t be able to do his 60th birthday tour, he decides to break the silence and tell his fans the whole truth: ” I was just diagnosed with a lung tumora little sympathetic cancerous tumor that cannot be operated on » he says on social networks. When the news is worrying, the one who sings My Freedom of Thought does not stay away fewer optimistic: ” Take care be healthy when this is all sorted out see you again I will come to finish what I started maybe for the 61 year tour.”
The artist intends to continue his career and return to the stage to meet his audience again. And for that, he knows he’ll have to undergo heavy chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Florent Pagny appeared on television for the program Unis pour l’Ukraine with his head shaved, a characteristic sign that cancer treatment had started. And it’s not because he’s sick that he wants to stay at home, quite the opposite: ” When I received this message to ask if I was fit enough to support Ukraine, raise awareness and ask for donations… Well yeah, yeah I’ll be there. i can still sing“.
The puzzle for the production of The Voice
The Voice is an expensive show and nothing can be left to chance. If everyone hopes Florent Pagny will be in good shape to ensure direct play, his treatment is difficult, everyone knows it. Therefore, the production is preparing for the fact that the singer will not be able to sit on his red chair.. A luxury replacement was therefore found in Patrick Fiori. If and only if Florent Pagny is not fit enough to play his part, his fellow singer will take over.
Louane was on her side to replace Amel Bent should the young mother have a child at the time of the live broadcasts. But the singer gave birth to her third child just days ago, so she should be able to play her role.
