NRJ Music Awards 2021: All about this year’s ceremony
Fhailing one of the best musical artists in the world, this year’s NRJ Music Awards marked the difference by returning to Cannes. While 2020 has seen a big difference in live music concerts, 2021 NRJ Music Awards brought it all back to life. The musical ceremony which began in 2000 with TF1 has undergone many changes and still retains its potential with the starred performance and the nominees chosen by the public. The event was broadcast live on November 20 and was again hosted by Nikos Aliagas. The location is set in Cannes where the show originally started with its first edition. The venue has been set at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes as in 2019.
