She auditioned for Nouvelle Star (French Idol series) in Marseille where she sang Rita Mitsouko's "Andy" passing in the category Les Inoubliables wearing a moustache and an electronic badge saying "j'aime les poils." She received three yeses and a notable no from judge Philippe Manœuvre. Moving to the second phase at théâtre in Trianon, she interpreted "Tainted Love", a capella, and finally in a trio with Lussi et Stéphanie, she sang "Je dois m'en aller" from Niagara. Finally she sang "C'est comme ça" again from Rita Mitsouko. She was chosen for the live show. She had great support from many people including a 90-year-old Jordi Barre who was invited to congratulate her when she won on 23 June 2010.
