the beautiful story of Victoire Solveig

INTERVIEW – The 22-year-old Swedish-born singer joined Vianney’s team during the blind auditions for season 13 of the TF1 singing competition.

Inside ” The voice “ , the red chairs can turn around from the first notes in the first seconds. They may never move. A unique stage of the singing competition produced by ITV Studios France for TF1, the blind auditions pit the coaches, on the one hand, with the sole evaluation of their eardrums, and, on the other, the artists who give everything to convince .

the nerves of Victory solution They were put to the test last November at the Lendit studio in Saint-Denis, during the filming of their performance. The 22-year-old from Aix-en-Provence, passionate about soul, blues and pop, had to wait for the last word on her version of Quei from Jane Birkin to see the faces of Vianney, Zazie and Mika appear in front of her. At the end of the suspense!

THE FIGARO. -What did you feel when the three coaches’ chairs turned?
Victoria SOLVEIG. – At that point, I was already in the state of mind where “The Voice” was going to end for me. I imagined going to my family and telling them it was over. It took me a while to realize what was happening because I thought my song was over and everyone was turning to talk to me. I saw the audience standing and excited, I didn’t understand. It’s been an emotional roller coaster.

Vianney and Mika were honest when they said they didn’t fully believe in you, what did you think of their assessments?
It may seem difficult to hear this from people you admire. But I liked that they told me with complete transparency that I still had a job because I was aware of it. It didn’t demoralize me, on the contrary. They made me want to work even harder to progress. I needed to hear that to revitalize myself.

Why did you decide to join the Vianney team?
This may seem paradoxical because he was hard on me. But I was looking for a coach capable of giving me a real challenge and pushing me to show that I am capable of doing much better. It was a personal challenge to go to the one who had “mistreated” me the most in his evaluations.

“I had to participate in “The Voice” as a trio with two other girls”

How did you find yourself in this edition of “The Voice”?
Last year I was part of the Dalida Institute, the singing school of Bruno Berberes (casting director of “The Voice, editor’s note). He asked me to audition at a time when I didn’t know if I was really ready for such a challenge. Initially I had to participate with two friends with whom I sing in a trio (the group Twenty One Music, with Léa Giulian and Fanny Mandrea), but one of us was chosen by Disney in the musical comedy of The queen of the snow. So I went there alone.

What did you expect from your participation in “The Voice”?
It was a personal challenge, to see if I can do it. I was always afraid to leave my room and sing in public. For a long time I was afraid to post videos of my performances on Instagram. I had to take matters into my own hands if I wanted to make singing my profession. Broadcasting can provide me with opportunities and give me additional strength.

What are your artistic projects?
I finish my business studies in Montreal in May and at the same time I’m working on my first EP. The goal is to be able to come and settle in Paris and present the models of my songs to labels in the hope of getting a contract.

““Star Academy” is a much more intimate show”

Several participants of “Star Academy” and “The Voice” come from Dalida Institute What can you tell us about this school?
It is the singing school, there we obviously receive singing classes but not only that. We also have MAO (computer-assisted music) courses, studio recording, English, law to master contractual aspects… Everything you need to be an artist and be able to develop yourself as best as possible. In one year we are made up of professionals and we have real opportunities for the future.

Could you have participated in a music program like “Star Academy”?
It turns out that I also participated in the castings for “Star Academy” and was there until the last stage of the auditions at the TF1 headquarters in Boulogne-Billancourt. Marie-Maud and Djébril were already there, coming from the Dalida Institute and they weren’t going to put the entire school on the air either! (Laughs.) Although it is a great experience that offers a lot of visibility, I don’t know if I would have liked to go because it is a much more intimate show.
