Halde has recommended last February in M6 and production company FremantleMedia to end the age limit. With a legal argument: the winner of the “new star” is offered at the end of the adventure a contract with a record company. It therefore falls within the scope of the law that “any direct or indirect discrimination based on age (…) for work, including self-employment or self-employed.”

For their part, television and production company FremantleMedia highlight the fact that the age limit they want “in the spirit and purpose of the competition which is essentially a new talent show”. Discussions with the Halde, who has made a recommendation, are still ongoing to change his mind M6.
