Nice 2 hour recording in this lovely studio, each artist performed nice sets including Pop Idol winner Julien Doré, Christophe and Phoebe Kiilldeer were good too. Recording started late as they were late doing soundchecks , it seemed that Christophe was, in fact late and hard to work with but the most interesting parts were the interviews between songs, Phoebe seemed a little bit lost here , even though her french is perfect ( she's australian ). There was tension in the air at the beginning and with what Christophe and Julien said, it was like being in the Twilight zone.
After the show , we met the singers , they were nice and chatty to everybody.

I'll post videos of each artist after the broadcast on saturday so stay tuned ...
