The weeks go by and

The Artist

is not alike.

Nagui will make new changes to its telecrochet, launched two weeks ago on France 2, and which has not yet found its audience.

"Artists have come forward by wanting to take part in this adventure," he announced in a video posted on Instagram this Wednesday evening.

Pascal Obispo, Gaëtan Roussel (…) and Bénabar will constitute the jury of

The Artist



The host and producer specifies that Elodie Mermoz and Emmanuel Virot, who until now officiated in the jury, "willingly leave them the place" and "will return to their initial love: taking care of and advising the artists on their performances. throughout the evening ”.

Difficult beginnings

The Artist

did not make the hoped-for start.

The last two shows have failed to compete with TF1's historic telecrochet, The Voice.

Last Saturday, barely 990,000 people (5.6% audience share) watched the second evening of the public service music competition.

The first issue didn't do much better, with just 1.3 million people in front of their screens.

The show had been criticized for its length - started at 8:45 p.m., it ended around midnight -, the too many candidates (22) and the fact that they performed covers and not titles they have written and composed themselves while 

The Artist 

aims to highlight authors and composers.

If Nagui saw his copy again after the first evening, that was not enough to raise the bar.

Will the new adjustments to the show bear fruit?

Answer Sunday morning, when the hearings of the day before will be revealed.
