Marghe, the surprise of the direct of “The Voice”: “I have already won everything”

“Pay attention to Marghe”. Florent Pagny had warned us. Arriving in the adventure “The Voice” almost on tiptoe, the 21-year-old Poitevine from Madagascar has established herself a little more at each stage as one of the talents to follow in this tenth season.

Marc Lavoine says of her that she is “insane”, Amel Bent that she is “hypnotic”. “Bewitching” even, according to his coach. The young singer used her magic on the cross-battles audience which qualified her for the semi-final. And that was perhaps the most surprise of her journey on the show. Still euphoric several months after filming, here she is ready to fully live her dream by singing live for viewers.

Last talent selected at the end of the knockouts, you were also the last to have won your ticket for the direct. Victories at the finish, is that your thing?

Apparently yes ! It is true that it was quite intense and stressful. I don’t know what happened but fate decided that I was the last every time (she laughs).

“The last will be first”sang Celine Dion. It may be a sign for the future …

Maybe, you never know. I let my lucky star guide me and for now, I am delighted with what she offers me (she laughs). It is an honor to be able to participate in the direct. I was not expecting it at all. I’ve wanted to be on the show for years. It’s just crazy what’s happening to me.

When Florent Pagny chooses to make you face Quebecer Anik, you say to yourself that it is ruined?

For me, Anik is a formidable singer with a very good technique. It’s impressive what she does. She ignited the set by resuming Tina Turner. I had a little stress going after her. But I kept the same state of mind by telling myself: “Whatever happens, your goal is to have fun and have a good time with the public and the coaches”. And when I saw the results, I was stunned. Like what, sometimes… The cross-battles, it is a stage which marked me a lot. I’m happy that it rained and to be able to represent my team with Giada for the direct.

Even Florent Pagny was surprised at my choice of song– Marghe

With “Don’t start now” by Dua Lipa, you choose a pretty jaw-dropping song that only its original singer seemed to be able to sing. The cross-battles, was it the step or never for such risk-taking?

Yes, but the more you go through the stages, the more risks you take. Nat King Cole’s “Nature Boy” during the knockouts, it was really a risk-taking. It is true that the battle aside, I always proposed a universe of softness. Even Florent Pagny was surprised by my choice of song with Dua Lipa. He told me : “That’s it, have you decided to do something totally different overnight?” I like the challenge, give my maximum and offer something jaw-dropping as you say. I am delighted that it worked.

Dua Lipa, is she an artist that you listened to a lot last year?

I admire him a lot, I listen to him a lot. I also wanted to discover my musical diversity. I can sing songs from the 50s as I can cover more modern pieces, reggae… I rely on various styles of music to put them back in my style and really offer something else.

Marghe sings “Don’t Start Now” by Dua Lipa

This choice of song paid off. Almost 80% of the audience on the set voted for you. That’s more than all the other talents of the season …

It was really impressive. Even I was shocked. It’s crazy… I would have liked to ask the public why (she laughs). I’m just honored and grateful because on top of that, he didn’t know our background on the show. Now I’m not going to let go. I just want to have fun and enjoy the moment. Of course I’ll be happy to go to the final, that’s the goal of the game. But if I have to stop before, it doesn’t matter because I’ve already won everything. This very beautiful experience was very beneficial to me. I managed to appear in front of France, I who come from Madagascar. It was already crazy to be on set for the blind audition, but then there …

From Louane’s “Donne-moi ton cœur” to “Don’t start now”, you seem to have gained in power on stage. You who sang already before “The Voice”, do you have the feeling to have grown up as an artist?

Of course I grew up a bit. It’s a totally different universe that I didn’t know at all. I was a little withdrawn at the start. I adapted to the environment and started to open up. The production is very benevolent and really makes us feel as comfortable as possible. I think what made me grow up is maybe this gain of confidence. We always ask ourselves questions, but I ended up telling myself, as I went through the stages, that it was working. It made me give even more. I hope it shows and that it gets noticed. I learned new vocal techniques which I started to use at knockouts It was a bit complicated to change my way of singing overnight. On Dua Lipa, I sang with my guts and my heart.

I really want us to vote because I liked my performance and not because it’s me– Marghe

Your coach Florent Pagny is raving about you. It is he who allowed you to achieve this “confidence building” who are you talking about?

He has always been very kind to me. He has this simplicity and above all this frankness that I really appreciate. When we rehearsed together, I was happy because he was always up for it when I made proposals to him. It is important this trust between the coach and the talent. It also proves to me that what I propose is not ugly (she laughs).

You have already covered Louane, Aretha Franklin, Nat King Cole… Your musical universe is multiple. What is the Marghe style?

I would say that sensitivity and acoustics represent me enormously. When the time comes, I know that I would like to highlight the fact that my crossbreeding made me immerse in various musical cultures.

The Voice 2021 – Marghe chante “Nature boy” de Nat King Cole (KO)

Florent Pagny says you are “a real warrior”. So what kind of song will you go into battle for the semi-final live with?

The song I chose was quite revealing, it will really reflect the evolution of my journey. I recognized myself in it when I first listened to it. I think we will discover a new Marghe during the direct.

The public will be in control of your destiny next week. Have you already mobilized all your relatives in Poitiers and Madagascar to be able to vote?

I do it little by little. I also see that some are mobilizing alone and it’s really nice (she laughs). I think the Malagasy community is behind me and we believe in it. But I really want us to vote because I liked my performance and not because it’s me.

The goal is the final and the record company contract?

Sure ! I think that’s our goal for all eight of us. But I insist once again. If I have to lose in the semi-finals, I won’t regret a thing. I will even leave with a big smile because I have already won everything.
