Belle et Bum is a musical variety show featuring musicians and artists from Quebec and elsewhere doing their interpretations of songs or original material. This 90-minute show is broadcast live and is hosted by two well-known Quebec music celebrities, Melissa Lavergne and Normand Brathwaite. The weekly lineup includes 5 or 6 carefully chosen artists, each evolving in their own musical sphere or willing to combine their talents with other guest artists to create original performances. Any type of musical genre can be represented on the show. A favourite part of the show is Piano à GOGO, where an invited guest performs the songs that mean the most to them. Belle et Bum begins its 14th season on Télé-Québec this year. Music is always the star of the show. It is the leading program on the Quebec music scene. At a time when the global music industry is undergoing profound change, the broadcast of Belle et Bum on conventional television is a unique contribution to the promotion of Quebec artists.
