Julien Doré won Nouvelle Star last night. This is the French version of Idol. He has a super sexy voice, and his renditions are one-off and fairly original (albeit a little Manson inspired). The boy (25 years old) knows how to command the stage, even if he admits to getting sick before going on.

Julien, who describes himself as a perfectionist, dynamic, and a realist, counts Bishop Allen and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club among his favorite groups. He also plays the ukalele…

Can we say record deal?!

Just listen to his version of Tainted Love.
