Initially, Dore wanted to come to Nouvelle Star to promote his group. When performing on the show, the musician played the guitar that had a sticker with the band’s name on it. At the contest, the artist performed his interpretation of Sharko’s “Excellent”. At first, the judges didn’t accept Dore’s singing. They offered him to perform acapella. Julien sang The Jean D'Ormesson Disco Suicide’s song “Funny Fishy Pussy", which the judges liked.

After the show, Julien went to audition for Trianon Theater. He became one of the 15 candidates chosen for live performances. At the same time, he started working on Madonna’s project, Like a Virgin
