How Would You Feel If Your Favorite Singer Came Into Your Living-Room?

Star a domicile at France Travel and FoodToday, in conclusion of my summer series of cool posts, I wanted to tell you about something that I found so very cool, indeed.  I’m talking about a French TV show that I found on YouTube.

The goal of that show is to surprise someone with the presence of they all time favorite idol (for the most part singers).

The TV show crew, the artist, and one or two insiders in the family of the person to by surprised is arranging everything so this meeting of a life time happens at the exact time and place as it’s supposed to to be.

Can you Imagine your Favorite Singer Appearing in front of you?

How would you feel if you saw your  favorite singer come into your living room singing?  How would you feel if they were there JUST for YOU?  What would be your reaction? Do you want to see how some of those lucky ones reacted?

This TV show ran on French TV from 2001 to 2004.  The name of the show is “Star à  Domicile” (Star at home). Perfect name for it too.  The show eventually stopped due to lack of availability of the artists.

Everything was planned carefully to a “T” with of course an accomplice insider.  The fan who was going to receive the surprise of their life had NO clue.

Here are few of them.  If you have a moment, make sure you watch them to the end they are only 10 ish minutes each. You don’t need to speak French to appreciate that.  I know you will!

By the way, a comment that those singers always made during the shooting of these shows is that they were very nervous.  Very emotional. I’m sure you’ll love it!

Surprise #1

Here a mom and dad are surprising their daughter with her favorite singer David Charvet. She thinks that she is going for a drink with her family at the tennis club after school. At some point her dad is telling her that there is a TV crew doing a report about tennis and find an excuse to drag her to the court.

As she approached a “fake” journalist ask the girl questions about herself, until she come up with the fact that she knows who her favorite singer is … and that’s when she gets the surprise of her life.  Look how she reacts.


Surprise #2

Here is a husband that is surprising his now pregnant wife with the visit of her favorite singer. She is just back from an errand and as she tells her husband that she was listening to her favorite singer Marc Lavoine in the car she felt that the baby stopped moving.

So her husband goes to the stereo and says, OK, let’s see if it works now… as he pretend to put the song on the real thing is coming into her living room.  Look how she reacts…

Surprise # 3

Here is a mom and dad surprising their daughter with Faudel her favorite singer.

The parents pretend to go out of town, but they are actually going to meet with their daughter’s surprise of a life time! She is having a pre-graduation party with her sister and friends when right after dessert comes her favorite singer of all time into the dinning room.

There are many more, but I had to come down to three, so the choice was tough. What I’ve done is choose the ones that someone “not speaking French” could enjoy the most.

      Hi Donna,

      Yes, if you are talking aoubt the first video, this guy is very cute, indeed. I hope you watched them all. It’s so much fun, and lovely too. I watched some of them over and over. Can’t get enough of them 🙂

      Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll be at your online place later today 🙂

    Oh my god, I think I would die!! I love shows like these, they are so much fun (especially because the person being surprised is happy about it!) I can imagine it must have been tough to get “stars” to show up at someone’s house and just start singing. I know they are supposed to be performers but I bet they are nervous anyway because it’s so close and personal. I don’t even know what I would do. Probably faint 🙂 I guess if I was a teenager and someone like Justin Beiber showed up it would be a little crazy lol. Of course you would have an interesting story to tell if that happened. Seems like fun and you don’t even have to understand a word they’re saying 🙂

      So glad you came and saw this Carol. What fun or what?

      Yes, as I mentioned in the post just about ALL of the singers were saying that they were super nervous. Some said they’d rather sing in front of five thousands because it was less stressful.

      I hope you watched all 3 videos 🙂 and had as much fun as I have.

      Have a great weekend!

    Oh my gosh Sylviane, I was even tearing up because I can just imagine being their age and having that happen. How cool is that!

    I love shows like this myself. How fun is that and that’s something that you’ll never forget in your entire life. That’s too bad that it ended but I can imagine their availability being an issue. That’s just so cool!

    Thank you for sharing these Sylviane. I watched all three and loved them all.

    Sylviane, that is so cool and what a great story! Gosh, I don’t know who I would pick to come if I won such a prize. That 1st guy did look so nervous, how funny that they are not in front of many but are in front of a few.

      Hi Lisa,

      So glad you came here.

      Well, those people didn’t win a prize it was a show where you could write to the show if you wanted to surprise some you love with a singer they were crazy about, and I’m not sure the criteria that made them pick someone.

      Yes, all the singers said the same thing. I’m so nervous. Some who even started saying, oh I’m OK, I feel good, change their talk as time got closer to start. They would say, man, you guys are crazy, I’m so nervous. Close and personal seems to be much harder for them, and I can understand that.

      I love those videos myself, I hope you enjoyed them!

    Hi Sylviane

    Wow they are amazing. Thanks for sharing them. I started crying in all three of them! The singers are very generous to give their time like that.

    As you know I can listen to the French language and especially singing anytime.

    Thanks for sharing them.

    Hi Sue,

    Yes, I was wondering if you were going to miss that!

    I’m sure glad I found this French TV show on YouTube. Great stuff. I love it and cried a lot too. Yes, those singers are great and I love them for that.

    They admit that it’s not a life time experience only for those that they give the surprise to, but also for them. They are all nervous too. Some even more than others.

    Have a great day!
