The next season of DALS ” on the TF1 television channel loses the couturier Jean paul Gaultier and Denitsa Ikonomova, who will no longer be part of the jury. Instead it’s the singer Bilal Hassani that viewers will be able to find on their screens during the next edition scheduled for the start of the school year, announced the channel via a press release this Friday, July 22. He thus succeeds M.Pokora and Shy’m who, too, had passed from the status of candidate to that of judge.
“ (…) With Bilal, the young viewer will have a judge with whom he can identify. He was a candidate who gave us an exceptional show last year, week after week. And who knows well the cogs and the little pitfalls that can be found in this type of competition “declared Frédéric Pedraza, deputy director of TF1 Production, to our colleagues from Parisian.
The young man of 22 years had indeed been able to impose himself in the last competition alongside his partner Jordan Mouillerac. However, he lost in the final against Tayc.
Following the formalization of its participation, Bilal Hassani published a photo of the show’s jury on the Instagram social network, not without hiding his joy: ” OH MY GOD !!! It’s finally announced, I join Chris Marques, Marie-Agnès Gillot and François Alu in the jury of Dancing With The Stars 2022. “Can we read in the caption of the post.
The singer, who will release a third album in the fall and who has just released a new single entitled “He or She”, is therefore ready for this new challenge.
A season that sees several headliners leave
Bilal Hassani will be accompanied by the dancer Marie-Agnes Gillot who also joins the jury. After having officiated for the Opéra national de Paris, the theater, the cinema, and even the stage with the bastards, the 46-year-old young woman joins the “DALS” jury table this time. A familiar task for the dancer, since she has already been part of the jury of The best dance on W9.
But if certain personalities arrive, others leave. This is particularly the case of the famous couturier Jean paul Gaultier and the dancer Denitsa Ikonomova, who will not return for a new season. On the side of the animators, it is Karine Ferri who is leaving the show and will therefore no longer present the after party broadcast in the second half of the evening.
On the other hand, Chris Marques, iconic judge of the program will always be present alongside Francois AluPrincipal dancer of the Paris Opera.
