The fourth season of Nouvelle Star began on February 22, 2006. All the judges returned to the panel and Benjamin Castaldi was set to host for a fourth time. However after the season went halfway through he was replaced by Virginie Efira on May 24.[1] Auditions were held in the following cities:

Rennes (18 October 2005)
Marseilles (31 October 2005)
Lille (6 November 2005)
Toulouse (14 November 2005)
Liège (21 November 2005)
Lyon (5 December 2005)
Paris (17 December 2005)

Due to problems with the voting lines the results from the original top 14, in which the 10 finalists were supposed to be determined, were voided and the four original eliminated contestants received a second chance in the following week which resulted in all of them making the cut while four original top 10 contestants were eliminated in the semifinals. In the end Christophe Willem triumphed over Dominique Michalon.
