Hosted live from the Champs-Elysées by Laurent Luyat and Laury Thilleman, the New Year’s Eve show was a big hit, peaking at 8.2 million viewers at the stroke of midnight, with an audience share of over 30%. Thank you, posted the very sporty former Miss France on her X (ex-Twitter) account. Paris 2024, here we come!

A mid-air screw-up, described on social networks as a total flop, nevertheless spoiled the party for this unprecedented duo of presenters. With less than two hours to go before the start of the new year, which will see the city of Paris host the Olympic Games (from July 26 to August 11), production wanted to make a splash. We’re going to do something absolutely historic together, the biggest wave in the world!nced Laury Thilleman to the crowd, as over a million people gathered on the avenue.

It’s madness!

And the sports journalist took over: The whole world is watching us, look at Paris! We’ve got to achieve this biggest wave in the world and get into the record books! Missed. For although the front rows timidly raised their arms, the wave very quickly stopped, which Laurent Luyat did not see. It’s madness, he said. This amused Internet users, who laughed at the flop, one of them saying: The France 2 wave will indeed be entered in the ‘Guinness Record’ in the category of greatest live embarrassment.
