Josiane Comeau is the new queen of “La Voix”. At 19, the protected Pirate Heart took the honors at the end of the eighth season finale at TVA on Sunday, thanks to her emotional interpretation of “Lonely” by Noah Cyrus.
The public awarded a generous 59% to the native of Dieppe, New Brunswick, who shone brightly in a short black outfit with a veiled skirt. She won an album contract with Musicor and a scholarship of $ 50,000.
Her opponents, Suzie Villeneuve (Garou team), Michaela Cahill (Marc Dupré team) and Flora Stein (Pierre Lapointe team) respectively snatched scores of 19%, 17% and 5%, following the popular vote.
“It’s crazy! I find that everyone deserves to win, I love you so much, and I am so happy to have been able to experience this (…) Thank you to all of you, thank you to everyone who voted ”, launched the winner, between two big sobs, when her name resonated in the MELS studio.
“I am so proud of you, you have no idea (…) You have become a shooting star, and you will continue to climb”, added his coach, Cœur de pirate, visibly elated.
From his home, Jacques Comeau, the father of Josiane, who had lived the adventure “La Voix” in 2019 and reached the semi-final under the good care of Eric Lapointe, stamped his feet in front of his daughter’s victory on Sunday. He was hopping on his sofa.
Sweet revenge for the young woman with the air of Ariana Grande, who had failed blind auditions when she tried her luck at the same time as her father. This year, Coeur de pirate’s chair swiveled for her at the start of the season, to the sound of “If you were there” by Louane.
It was probably symbolic for Suzie Villeneuve, who had deserted “Star Académie” in 2003, to reinvent “The blues of the businessman”, according to the version of Nicole Croisille (with a text in “you”), taken from the film “Itinerary of” a spoiled child ”, by Claude Lelouch.
Garou, was moved by praising his longtime friend after her performance. He even blasphemed some in his red chair. “We’re happy that you’re singing, hos …!” He exclaimed. You are truly, truly, one of the greatest voices I have heard in my life. ”
No wonder Suzie reached the finale of “The Voice”; her career on the show has been flawless, since her blind audition on Celine Dion’s “I Surrender”, for which she had been a backing vocalist during the celebrations of the 400th anniversary of Quebec City.
“I had no expectations,” said Suzie leaving the stage. I did not know where this road was going to lead. For me, that was a very personal, and grandiose step. What happiness, it was a great experience! ”
The graceful Michaela Cahill, 26, gave it all by tackling the huge “Imagine”, by John Lennon. The ex-Beatle would have celebrated his 80th birthday on October 9.
“I recognize myself in you, because I have always been a ‘fighter’. The performance was magnificent, you worked so hard, ”greeted Marc Dupré after his performance.
The young mother of Mika, 7 years old (she had at 18) and Avery, 4 years old, native of Fort-Coulonge, in the Outaouais, has faced several challenges since her blind audition, where she had interpreted ” Never Tear Us Apart ”, by INXS. She notably pulled out of the game with Battle Songs (with “The Joke”, by Brandi Carlile) and had to put herself in danger last week by singing in French (“Les un contre les autres”, taken from the rock opera “Starmania”), she whose mother tongue is English.
“I am really proud of Josiane, really happy, enthusiastic Michaela after the show, excited. Every minute, I remembered something. We changed, we took care of each other! ”
Small (discreet) train goes a long way, one could say about Flora Stein, 25, from Gatineau, who traveled with Pierre Lapointe during his experience at “La Voix”. She stood out on Sunday with “Our memories” by Mireille Mathieu.
The candidate has created few waves since her blind hearing (on “Masterpiece”, by Jazmine Sullivan). Born to a Quebec mother and a Mexican father, Flora won the grand prize on the show “Un air de famille”, in which she participated with her parents, in 2013.
Dreaming of Broadway, Flora – who works at the Botanical Garden as a horticulturalist – studied musical theater in Sainte-Thérèse. Pierre Lapointe referred to his professional background by praising him after his final lap.
“I can’t wait for theaters to reopen, for there to be auditions for musicals and for you to go (…) I can’t wait to hear you again. (…) I am very moved to see you this evening ”, he warmly congratulated her.
“I’m really happy that Josiane won,” said Flora in an interview. She was my favorite since the start of the season. I cried, I was so happy for her! We had so much fun, the four together, and with the production, I’m overwhelmed with happiness! ”
Loaded, this finale of “the longest season in the history of” The Voice “”, joked Charles Lafortune at the opening, allowed us to appreciate numbers featuring, among others, Half Moon Run, Paul Piché, 2Brothers, Tyler Shaw and Ariane Moffatt. Several participants from past editions of the competition, who now sit at the top of the charts – from Ludovick Bourgeois to Geneviève Jodoin, via the young rapper Sydney Lallier – were also part of the party, which took place, like it should be without an audience in the room.
Charles Lafortune sent a felt goodbye to viewers at the end of the evening, “La Voix” momentarily bowing out on TVA to make way for “Star Académie” next winter.
