:france::uk: Translation in English :wink2: by @crazyaboutmika


This is an exclusivity: Mika invited us to follow him backstage in a big magic and philarmonic concert in Montreal. Meanwhile preparing his album to be released in spring and also being each week a very dedicated judge in The Voice at the same time, discover intimate Mika.

Montreal in Quebec last week, temperature is around minus 15 degrees centigrades, in the symphonic orchestra building , the musicians are getting their intruments ready to play together, they are waiting for their guest , who will sing with them for the very first time tonight.


Mika: "I'm late". Already late!"


Mika has already spent several days in Montreal rehearsing with the 105 musicians of the orchestra . He is going to give three exceptional concerts in this concert hall that can hold an audience of 2000 people , one of the most well known in the world. Time has come for the very last rehearsals.

Mika and Simon Leclerc, the conductor, made together arrangements of his songs,so the orchestra could play them. Singing here is a true challenge, the building leaves no room for errors,


Mika:"The acoustician (he also took care of a similar place in Tokyo) which means a finger snap on stage can be heard to the furthest part of the room by the security exit and "the paradise" (higher parts of the room). It's amazing! It's fabulous!"


A new challenge for Mika, this singer with so many facets, we follow him now in Montreal.

A few hours before his concerts, Mika is taking a Montreal tour.


Mika: "I can't see you because there's an animal trying to get into my mouth as I'm talking to you. It's fake fur of course. "


Montreal is a town the singer knows well. He came to Montreal seven years ago and has been returning regularly since then in order to sing on stage or record albums, but tonight's event started out a bit by chance. A year and a half ago, one of Mika's Canadian friends who is a journalist suggested this idea to him after a concert. She told me: "I saw you playing piano, why don't you do something totally classic, with a symphony?" and I said : "Yes, why not, some day, yes" and I asked her if she knew someone at the symphony and she said:"no", so I asked her how she would get in touch with them and she said she would find them in the yellow pages, and that's exactly what she did. Then four months later she called me and said they agreed to the project and now here we are.

On this particular day Mika takes some time to go high to be able to enjoy a view of Montreal. It's the first time he sees Montreal under the snow from so high.


Mika: "Nice view, it's not bad, it's so flat!"


Mika lives in London. Before his stay in to Montreal, he was in Los Angeles to get his new album ready, then he's off to New York and after that to Paris for The Voice , and he will soon tour all around the world for new concerts. Mika is 31 and he is a true nomad.


Mika: "I'm a bit like a gypsy. In a way I don't mind but that's because I travel a lot but with my friends and my family. I have this priviledge to feel at home everywhere I am. So right now I don't mind. But I don't have any children, so my life isn't traditional in that way at home, so for now it gives me freedom, but if it changes some day, well it will change, but now it's going well. "


The singer wants to visit a special place he heard a lot about.


Mika: "We are going to Garou's"


Garou is one of the owners of this inn, which was opened in 1754 , so one of the oldest of North America. After being totally refurbished it has become one of the most famous restaurants in Montreal. Garou is not there on that day, but the chief Emily Rizeto invites Mika to follow her into the kitchen.


Mika:"Good evening."

Mika: "Do I cook? Yes I love cooking?"

Chief: "Yeah! Can you cook anything?"


Mika: "Yes! Anything!"

Chief:"So I'm gonna make you work a bit!"


Mika:" Yeah!"

Chief; "Here we go!"


Mika is going to help the chief cook his lunch (Chateaubriand -big slice of beef-with a mix of vegetables)


Mika:"The surgeon gloves are not very sexy! Am I doing this well?"

Chief: "Yeah!"

Mika: "Those are big slices aren't they?"

Chief: "The red one is for meat."


Mika:"If someone had told me I was going to cook in Garou's restaurant....he's in Paris and he's watching me from there! "


Mika: "Done! This is how to do it."

Chief: "It's delicious!"

MIKA:"In Italian!"


But good food is not the only asset of this place. On the top floor, a stange place is hidden, at the end of these steep and dark stairs.


Mika:"It's like in an old western! Do we continue?"

Mika: "Waoh!"


An attic filled with old pianos!


Mika:"This one is not in a good shape!"

Mika:"That's so cool! What a good idea! The pianos cementery!


The piano, Mika's good luck instrument. It is with a piano that he discovered music. Michael Hollbrook Penniman started playing the piano as a chid when he was six in Paris where he lives with his family. By a twist of fate this particular piano will follow him in London when the family has to move very fast there when Mika is ten.


Mika:" We had to leave Paris in very difficult circumstances. We had lost everything. One of the only things that followed us in the move from Paris to London was that piano because the bailiffs didn't take it because it has no value. And this is the piano on which I composed almost all of my first and second albums."


Today, the little boy who played the piano has become a singer and a star with ten million albums sold. A star who is about to take a big risk tonight by singing on one of the most well known concert hall in the world. 2000 people came to listen to him.


Mika: "I feel a bit nervous, I feel out of control, I know I can not do a single mistake in this context, there's no security net , if I fall I can't hide , I can't dance, there are no lights, no staging, there's nothing."


Tonight it won' t be an extravagant, colorful gig as he's used to , but acoustic music.


Mika:"Good evening."


And Mika's bet is a total success, this classical orchestra plays his pop music, as for example, his newest single, Boum Boum Boum which tells the story of a couple making love. After an hour and a half of concert, Mika seems reassured.


Mika:"It was nice."

Journalist: "How do you feel?"

Mika: "Electrified."


On this particular night the audience was so lucky as they heard four new songs of Mika's coming album which he is currently finishing.
