“Song of the Year” will take place in Paris.
While the show usually takes place in the arenas of Nîmes, this year it will take place in the Gardens of the Palais Royal in Paris.
This change was due to the health crisis of Covid-19 because the production wanted a place behind closed doors.

To respect the measures of social distancing, there will be no audience. However, so as not to leave the artists alone, a giant screen will project live television viewers from their homes.
Throughout the evening, they will be able to vote live for their favourite song and artist. Voting will be open from the start of the show.
So, who will be the big winner of this 2020 edition?
