In an interview with "Puremédias" this Tuesday, December 6, Michel Polnareff explained why he would not like to be a coach at all on the singing show "The Voice", broadcast on TF1.

If the interpreter of "Goodbye Marylou" loved participating in the grand prime of the final of the "Star Academy", he would not like to "teach lessons" to other singers. 

Michel Polnareff is back on the front of the stage.

The singer is notably honored this Tuesday evening on France 2. An exceptional evening to celebrate his career has thus been recorded.

And, the artist loved to participate, as he confided to our colleagues from


"At the beginning, I was not keen. I found the approach a little weird, apart from the desire to please the fans", he admits at first.

"I was impressed by Anne Sila and Bilal Hassani"

"I had to believe in it. I was a little apprehensive," he continues.

"I hadn't sung for a long time. For the piano, it was. It's part of me. But the voice, I had to preserve it!".

The interpreter of

Goodbye Marylou

was also largely moved by the recovery of his titles: "I was more than moved. I was moved by the closeness of being with someone who represented me at my debut. Then, I was very impressed by the guests, in particular - I will forget - Catherine Ringer, Camille Lellouche, Nolwenn Leroy, Anne Sila and Bilal Hassani. Bilal is absolutely wonderful", he confides.

Michel Polnareff also celebrated his big comeback on stage with the

Star Academy

finalists on November 26th.

"I think it's important for singers who are beginners or in search of popularity, that there is this kind of show", he underlines in


His time in the

Star Academy

, however, did not at all make him want to become a coach in

The Voice. 

"I don't like giving lessons"

"That has nothing to do with giving people lessons, that's not my thing. I don't like being given lessons. I don't like give. I don't want to explain to others. I don't want to be the big boss who says: 'That's good. That's not good'", justifies the singer.

"It has nothing to do with the sets. But I think these TV shows are very important, as it replaces the hook radios of a long time ago, so that people have a window on the outside somewhere “, he concludes.
