They are called Charly Nestor and Jean-Marc Lubin and for nearly fifteen years have made the happiness of M6 every Saturday morning. They will be back on W9 Tuesday, February 8 for a program that will look back on these fifteen years of madness. Because yes, it was the fire during each number of the “Hit Machine”.
Launched in 1994 with Ophélie Winter and Yves Noël in a daily version, the “Hit Machine” went weekly from July 1995 with a new duo Charly Nestor and Jean-Marc Lubin, better known as Charly and Lulu. Each week, they presented the ranking of the best-selling singles of the week, as could do the “Top 50” in the 80s and 90s on Canal+. Success was immediately evident and all the stars of the time flocked to the set to play and sing live in front of a young and wild audience: Lorie, the Poetic Lovers, the 2B3, Alliage… Even Charly and Lulu pushes the song with the famous “Le Feu ça brule”, in 1997, which will sell more than 350,000 copies.
From the year 2006, the concept begins to tire viewers but the show remains on the air until May 1, 2009. The audience, just above 500,000 viewers in recent weeks, is too confidential for M6 which stops the musical show after several attempts to change format. Between December 2012 and January 2013, W9, affiliate M6, tries to bring “Hit Machine” up to date without its two star hosts, but the show is very quickly stopped due to the audience. Today, we learn that she will return to the antenna.
On Tuesday, February 8, W9 will indeed broadcast “Generation Hit Machine”, a program that will allow you to relive the best moments of the show. Charly and Lulu will be at the presentation and they really will be accompanied on set by a few surprise guests. Nostalgia assured.
