I have never seen a bad act on that show. Not even once. And I have seen many acts on there. And yet I see bad acts all the time at magic conventions. What is it that the French TV people know that convention organisers don't?

The main responsible for the quality is Monique Nakachian which directs the casting of the plus grand cabaret since the beginning (19 years ago).
I think that one reason of the quality is also that it is not a magic show but a "Cabaret". As a consequence the judgement for the selection is not only on the magic, but on many other criterion : entertainment, humor, artistic, poesy, physical performance ...

Monique also owns probably the most powerful & important variety/circus booking agency in Europe - so has a huge database of tried and tested acts & a formidable reputation to protect. She also very actively tours Europe visiting smaller gala shows and productions looking for undiscovered acts; she is truely what you expect and hope an agent to be.

All I can say in that case is that she does a bloody good job of it.
