For the occasion, Karine Ferri and Christopher Beaugrand will be surrounded by many guests, Michele Bernier to Denis Brogniart, via Just Riadh, Keen’V, Chantal Ladessou or Marie-Ange Nardi.

“La Grande soiree du 31 à Fontainebleau” on France 2 to… sing and dance

After the Château de Chantilly last year, Stephane Bern settles this time under the gold of the Château de Fontainebleau for an evening placed under the sign of music and heritage. The festivities will take place in three incredible locations – the ballroom, the François I gallery and the grand staircase in the Cour d’Honneur. The animator, passionate about history, will be surrounded by many guests from different generations such as Jennifer, Patrick Bruel, Kendji Girac, Louise Attack, Pierre de Maere, Émile et Images, Early Evening and Patrick Hernandez. Under the artistic direction of Kamel Ouali, the dancers of the Paradis Latin and the Moulin Rouge as well as the artists of the Bouglione circus, the Cirque Phénix and the Folies Gruss will come to illuminate this evening with their talent. Not to mention an exceptional ten-minute fireworks display on a soundtrack by DJs from the Ofenbach group.

M6 on its 31 to… party

M6 is, too, at the time of the festivities. If she had played the counter-programming card last year by offering the film first star, it aligns itself this time with its competitors by offering a great musical show. It is Elodie Gossuin, the fashionable presenter on the Six, which hosts these three hours of emission placed under the sign of the tubes. Miss France 2001 invited the biggest stars of song to the Dôme de Paris for lives specially designed for the occasion. Juliet Armanet, Slimane, Amir, Amel Bent, ZazieChristophe Willem, Soprano, Gilbert Montagné, the musical comedy troupe Notre Dame de Paris or that of I will love you which pays homage to the songs of Michel Sardou, will be on stage to make viewers dance in their living room.

“Ze Fiesta! At the Olympia” on C8 to… do something new with from the old !

For those nostalgic for Patrick Sebastian, C8 offers to find the host during this New Year’s Eve party that he hosted for many years on France 2. For this, the channel did not produce an unpublished prime time but simply rebroadcasts an evening of the Two dating from … December 25, 2015! The channel would be wrong to deprive itself since it had played the same card last year with a replay of “20 years of the Biggest Cabaret in the World” (passed in June 2018 on France 2) which had gathered nearly 1.3 million viewers on average allowing the channel to rank 4th in audiences and beat M6! In “Ze Fiesta! At the Olympia” we obviously find everything that made the success of the presenter: songs, disguised audience, parodies of stars on stage like Julien Lepers in Nabilla or of Shy’m in michael jackson ? Nelson Monfort in Michel Polnareff, Dave as Annie Cordy or Chantal Ladessou as Dalida. Not to mention sketches of Bodin’sof Jean Marie Bigard or brothers-in-law.

“Beautiful escapes” to… dream and escape

For those who hate variety and bloopers and prefer a quiet evening with escape and dreams, France 5 has what you need. The channel broadcasts a “Close call” unreleased titled White Magic in Finland presented by Sophie Jovillard. The journalist will get in touch with the inhabitants – sometimes by adoption – who live closer to nature and will introduce us to the sublime snowy and icy landscapes of this country elected by the World Happiness Report as the happiest in the world. Another possible counter-programming on this last evening of the year: the film Knockdirected by Guy Lefranc, which has not aged a bit despite its more than 70 years of existence!
