They are between 18 and 78 years of age, they come from different backgrounds, overseas, rural areas, city or suburbs. Some have not passed a qualification to finish secondary education, others are doctors or have doctorates. These twelve candidates of backgrounds, paths, with different stories and different ways of speaking, all have a special connection with the spoken word. Each of them uses the spoken word in a particular way daily, but together, they all share the same taste for language and words. They submit themselves to three tests of eloquence: a solo, the duels and a final with three. In front of them, a jury made up of personalities who have all made the spoken word the best way of changing their daily lives: Roselyne Bachelot, Bertrand Périer, Oxmo Puccino, Dominique Besnehard, Sonia Rolland et Caroline Vigneaux.
