For me there was only ever one winner in the French national final and that was the eventual winner ‘Moustache’ by Twin Twin. France selects their entry through a combination of votes from the public and votes from a jury of experts. There were two other competitors in the French final, so let’s have a look at them and see how they measure up to the ‘Moustache’ men.
Destan ‘Sans Toi’
Destan are France’s answer to One Direction. The trio look like Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and a weird Liam Payne/Harry Styles mix. The band have even travelled to London to film their video for the song ‘Sans Toi’. The song is sung in both French and English and the song has real potential. Boy band appeal is something that could really propel you in Eurovision if done right. However the song didn’t quite make the cut. Have a look at the video below:
Joanna ‘Ma Liberte’
The second of the three competitors is Joanna. She has the makings of a great pop star; has a great voice, is beautiful and makes a great music video. The video for ‘Ma Liberte’ sees the singer in an old abandoned warehouse as she uses fire extinguishers full of paint to hipster up her surroundings. The song is great but it has one failing. It’s not about moustaches.
