The Voice 2022: Slimane’s hidden message to Florent Pagny


The gesture did not go unnoticed and moved many internet users. This Saturday, May 21, on the occasion of the grand finale of The Voice, the former winner of Florent Pagny wanted to send a symbolic nod to his coach.

Alongside Nour (Florent Pagny’s protege and big winner of this edition), the winner of the fifth season of The Voice performed the title Before you. But what especially aroused the interest and enthusiasm of viewers and internet users was above all the message sent by Slimane to his eternal coach.

The interpreter of Knowing how to love is, in fact, suffering from an inoperable “cancerous tumor” in the “lung”. An announcement made on social networks last January which had shaken the internet sphere. This Saturday, May 21, his former protege Slimane wanted to send him a strong message. While he pronounced, during his interpretation, the following sentence: “Before you I had nothing”, Slimane wished, at the same time, to show his former coach the finger in order to show him his gratitude.

The fact is that this gesture, however imbued with emotion, almost went unnoticed on the side of Florent Pagny. If the interpreter of Knowing how to love widely praised the performance of Nour and Slimane, he did not particularly rebound on the gesture of his former protege. However, this attention is far from having escaped Internet users. Many comments quickly appeared on social networks following this discreet but symbolic gesture in order to testify to its moving nature.
