“He has an extraordinary musical repertoire”

Author, composer, performer, multi-faceted artist, Calogero has marked the history of French variety.

And it is therefore he who will preside over this 38th edition of the Victoires de la Musique.

A choice that became obvious, as explained by Alexandra Redde Amiel, patron saint of entertainment at France Télévisions: "Calogero is one of the emblematic artists that the French love. He is a wonderful songwriter. He wrote for the older ones and he has an extraordinary musical repertoire. It's been a long time since we've seen him. He's a complete artist who looks like the Victoires".
