Unforgettable funny moment at the 2005 ADISQ Gala. Isabelle Boulay won the Félix for the most successful artist outside of Quebec, an award Corneille had won the previous year. As she walked onto the stage, she smeared her nose with the black foundation of the singer who kissed her. To save the honor, the gentleman had gone onto the stage to gently wipe Isabelle’s face.
