And the winner is…

Nouvelle Star, France’s version of U.S. television show American Idol, has just crowned a new winner – a young singer and musician that goes by the name Mathieu.

Performing his way through a field of incredibly talented contestants, Mathieu found himself in the finale pitted against powerhouse female vocalist Yseult. Both artists gave emotional and convincing performances in the final show, but ultimately it was Mathieu that won over the hearts and minds of the voters and was crowned France’s new Nouvelle Star.

Check out Mathieu’s fantastic performance of the Elliot Smith song “Between the Bars” in the show’s finale, in which he also plays his Takamine P1DC guitar.

Congratulations Mathieu!
