This Saturday March 6, The Voice was back on TF1 for a new evening of blind auditions. On stage, a young candidate delivered a breathtaking performance that conquered the hearts of Internet users, but not that of coaches. Well, not really. Bitter and full of regrets, Florent Pagny could not contain his anger. A rant that was very well received on the Web … pretty much.
New talents for a fifth evening of blind auditions. This Saturday, March 6, fans of The Voice were able to meet the jury of the famous TF1 show, Amel Bent, Vianney, Marc Lavoine and Florent Pagny. And for this new number, the talent and the show were there! After surprising or moving performances, it was Marina Battista who appeared on the stage of The Voice.

Emotion and incomprehension on the Web
For this happy 18-year-old student, music is a real passion. And even a family affair: among the Battistas, we sing from generation to generation! So after having chained the singing competitions, it is on TF1 that Marina chose to try her luck by rubbing shoulders with a perilous song, Never Enough by Loren Allred, extracted from the movie The Greatest Showman. A title brilliantly interpreted by the young woman from Tarn-et-Garonne. But not enough for the coaches, who did not look back. So inevitably, on Twitter, the misunderstanding was general.
Florent Pagny steps up to the plate
Faced with Marina, the jurors of The Voice of course tried to justify their choice, as best they could. “You should have told me this story“Amel Bent explained to the young candidate, followed by reassuring and somewhat embarrassed words from her fellow antenna, Vianney and Marc Lavoine.
But on his side, Florent Pagny I struck out. “I am totally upset with the situation“dropped the singer, quite annoyed, before pointing the finger at the other coaches:”You could largely be in this adventure. They can say whatever they want, I didn’t hear anything they said.“After Marina’s departure, Florent Pagny let his anger explode at Vianney, Amel Bent and Marc Lavoine:”We can’t let this little girl go by like that! (…) This kind of performance, for the viewers, we get screwed.“A strong position taken and widely shared by Internet users who have praised the wise words of Florent Pagny.
Nevertheless, some Twitter birds did not understand why Florent Pagny, who looked so captivated by Marina’s performance, did not turn around either. And the mystery remains.
If Marina unfortunately left empty-handed, her passage on the stage of The Voice will have caused a deep disagreement between the coaches. But the bad atmosphere did not last very long. And if Internet users did not understand the fate of Marina, they laughed a lot thanks to the valves of Amel Bent and Vianney, and to the two pairs of prescription glasses by Marc Lavoine. Florent Pagny, for his part, won over the public with his “lucidity”. On the talent side, Alexis, Sonia and the Pottok On The Sofa trio have convinced coaches and viewers.
