She became famous through the 2003 TV show Greg le millionnaire: a mere bricklayer called Greg faking to be a millionnaire had to spend a summer with about 20 girls trying to seduce him, one of whom was Marjolaine. The next summer she had her own show based on a similar concept. In 2004 she released a single, Geisha, whose resounding failure convinced her to quit music.

Monsieur Nov is a R&B singer of Chinese descent. Unfortunately unkown to the general public probably - I think - because of the media's racism, his talent is nonetheless incontestable. His voice is particularly deep and spellbinding. As of today he's released two albums but personally I don't think his career going to go any further unless a great record label signs him very soon.
