the essential The singer Gilbert Montagné was the guest of “17 h 30 on Sunday “with Laurent Delahousse, on France 2, this Sunday evening.
During the interview, Laurent Delahousse released an archive image of Johnny Hallyday in 550. He then welcomed Gilbert Montagné on stage with him at the Pavillon de Paris. By launching the subject of “The moment archives”, the presenter of France 2 addressed Gilbert Montagné saying: “Look, listen” . Surely realizing that he was speaking to a blind man, Laurent Delahousse stammered a little and repeated with a smile: “Listen”. Gilbert Montagné added: “And we look”. Before Laurent Delahousse says: “And we’re coming back”.
A blunder highlighted by several Internet users.

The prisoner replied: “But it’s you I wanted!” Words the singer has never forgotten.
