The live telecast featured the contestants in various tableaux with a Disney-esque and fairy-tale theme. Sets themed on Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella (to the soundtrack of La Boum, the early Sophie Marceau film), Anastasia, The Little Mermaid (for the swimwear, by Aurélie Alezeraa) and Little Red Riding Hood took place. There was a nod to current music: the 1001 Nights tableau was performed to Beyoncé’s ‘All the Single Ladies’.
The jury consisted of Québecois singer Garou (in the chair), Sylvie Vartan, Elodie Frégé, Vincent Niclo, Titoff, TV presenter Jean-Pierre Pernaut and his partner, Nathalie Marquay (Miss France 1987).
