Background[edit]

The title trophies and nominees for each are established annually by the Board of Directors of the Association "Les Victoires de la Musique", which also refers to people who make up the Academy voters. In 2010, the Victoires were awarded by a panel of 1 226 professionals (musicians, artists, writers, composers, producers, record stores, video directors, sound engineers and critics) in a vote in one round. Voters are 40% of artists (performers, but also musicians, writers, composers ...), 40% of professional music production and 20% of other professional circles close to the world of music (agents artists, music stores, music critics, radio programmers ...). In recent years, some trophies are awarded by the public, through SMS voting, and since 2009, Internet: Victory "Group or Artist of the public revelation of the year" and that the "Song of the year".
