Loris is not the winner of The Voice, the musical competition on TF1, which seeks to unearth new talent. After an incredible journey, the 18-year-old from Neuchâtel managed to be one of the five finalists, the first Swiss to do so.
The winner of the contest is Nour. The youngest of the show won with 56.2% of the vote against 43.8% for Mister Mat. Besides Nour, Mister Mat and Loris, Vike and Caroline Costa were in contention in this final.
Loris had a lot of chances to advance to the final, as he was drafted twice by Nolwenn Leroy, once in the blind auditions and once in the semi-finals. The Neuchâtelois had declared in an interview with ArcInfo: “My coach Marc Lavoine told me well: my ass is lined with noodles”.
Fan zone in Neuchâtel
At the end of the semi-final on May 14, on social networks, some felt that the Neuchâtelois was a notch below and had no place in the final. As Nolwenn Leroy “chose to trust me, I’m going to have to come up with something even bigger, which will close the valves,” Loris told the Neuchâtel daily.
If he started music by rapping at Place Pury in Neuchâtel, Loris, who has only been singing for five to six months, has shown that he is capable of performing on different types of music. Loris aroused great enthusiasm in Neuchâtel, so much so that a fan zone was set up at the Mail tennis court in Neuchâtel, next to the singer’s father’s restaurant for the semi-final and for the final.
