It’s only been a few weeks now. At the beginning of the next school year, TF 1 will launch the twelfth season of “Dancing with the stars”. An edition marked by many revisions. Exit Karine Ferri in the animation of the second part of the night, exit of the dancer Christian Millette, also exit the judges Denitsa Ikonomova and Jean-Paul Gaultier. On the other hand, the judges’ table will welcome the star dancer Marie-Agnès Gillot and the singer Bilal Hassani, last season’s finalist, together with the indestructible Chris Marques and François Alu.
But who are the 12 candidates who will compete in September? Tuesday night, TF 1 formalized the participation of the Filipino singer Billy Crawford, a star in the early 2000s thanks to his hit “Paggapan” as well as his relationship with Lorie. A first confirmation when several names have been circulating for several weeks, expressed mainly by our partners from Public and Closer. As it turns out, some are true, some are false.
According to our information, the majority of the cast is now recorded to participate in this version of 2022. Apparently there is a representative of the daily fictions on the front page. After Clément Rémiens and Aurélie Pons, the production is looking at it Thomas DaCosta. Arriving in “Here everything begins” last March, this 23-year-old model, actor and rapper is Axel Teyssier, nephew of the emblematic director of the Auguste Armand cooking school played by Benjamin Baroche. In “Dancing with the Stars”, he will face another new face, that of Stéphane Leger. Unknown to the general public, this 24-year-old Israeli-Togolese model has 1.6 million subscribers on TikTok and signed the French soundtrack for “Sonic 2” last spring.
A new Miss France in the competition
Another recruit of the season, the comedian Florent Peyre. Having been requested many times in recent years, the 42-year-old actor is here this time. as David Douillet, whose return to school promises to be busy. Because after the participation of the “Mask Singer” in the costume of the lion in 2019, the judoka and former minister is also on the bill for “Traitors”, the new game M 6 will be launched on August 17.
On the female side, many singers are guaranteed to participate in the program. To begin with Carla Lazzari, who represented France at Eurovision Junior in 2019 with the title “Bim Bam Toi”. But he will not be alone as he faces Eve, 21, two albums to her credit and an NRJ Music Award for French-speaking female artist of the year, won at the end of 2021 against Clara Luciani, Juliette Armanet, Amel Bent, Hoshi, Louane, Wejdene and Yseult. Another generation of singers, Anggun will be on the floor after leaving the “Mask Singer” jury this summer.
And what would “Dancing with the Stars” be without Miss France? After Valérie Bègue, Laury Thilleman, Sylvie Tellier, Élodie Gossuin, Iris Mittenaere, Linda Hardy and Vaimalama Chaves, the 2022 edition will be represented by Amandine GamayMiss Normandy 2020 and Miss France 2021.
The interpreter of “Malcolm” in the casting?
I wonder who will be the last three faces of season 12 of “Dancing with the stars”. With maybe a few more surprises. The name of Frankie Muniz, famous interpreter of “Malcolm” in the series of the same name and finalist of the American version of the competition in 2017, was thus mentioned.
Comedian and humorist Az also passed the tests to join this season and is on the short list. Finally, it’s good to be in M 6 this summer thanks to “Beijing Express” then “Les Traitors”, the influencer Just Riadh can be good with the competition. Unless there are other names. “We need to find women, relying on a relative in the production. Only two have won (Shy’m in 2011 and Alizée in 2013), it’s good to have a third winner…”
