On the animation side, Camille Combal will now be solo since Karine Ferri has decided to leave the show.
The new jury
This year, the jury is completely overwhelmed. Only two jurors will be back: Chris Marques and François Alu. Denitsa Ikonomova and Jean-Paul Gaultier have not returned for a new edition. In their place, we will find Bilal Hassani and the prima ballerina Marie-Agnès Gillot.

Several have already announced their departure from the show, namely Denitsa Ikonomova, who could be found in another show according to rumors; Maxime Dereymez; Christian Millette; Coralie Licata; Marie Denigot who was dismissed after the withdrawal of a candidate or even Joël Luzolo. Fortunately, others have confirmed their returns like Christophe Licata and Katrina Patchett. For the rest, we will have to wait.
New features to come
