At the 16th NRJ Music Awards 2014 ceremony at the Cannes Palais des Festivals, a whole bunch of stars offered a memorable show, broadcast on TF1.
On Saturday, December 19, 2014, many French and international stars and celebrities walked up the NRJ Music Awards Red Carpet on the Croisette as musical award recipients, prize-givers, performers, or attendees in the great TV show hosted by Nikos Aliagas, broadcast on French TF1.
Red Carpet photo call
A sea of photographers and adoring fans was awaiting the artists at the Red Carpet for autographs and selfies with their favorite star. From 8 pm, stars, celebrities and artists made themselves available for the traditional phot ocall.
The most-anticipated headliners were Lenny Kravitz, Stromae, One Direction, David Guetta or Paris Hilton.
Among the most acclaimed, Shy’m, who arrived at Lenny Kravitz’s arm, the French Tal, molded in a beautiful white dress revealing her bare back, Stromae, who made his appearance in a richly colored costume, dotted with Cesaria Evora’s portrait, his team wearing bowler hats.
Paris Hilton has also created a sensation in a long sexy red dress, and played with the photographers and public.
The One Direction hit the Red Carpet to the sound of screaming fans – without Louis Tomlinson, the sick fifth member.
The beautiful Camille Cerf, the freshly elected Miss France 2015, received a warm welcome and played the game of selfies with the young audience. Two superstars, Patrick Bruel and the inevitable M. Pokora, walked the Red Carpet together.
