Recently it has been rare that France have had a national selection contest for Eurovision. Between 2008 and 2013 and again since 2015 they have opted to select their act through an internal selection process. This has given them a fairly good success rate with Alma finishing twelfth, and Amir especially coming in sixth place, their best result in the last fifteen years. Today however French broadcaster France 2 revealed that they will air multiple episodes of a new show Destination Eurovision to select their artist and song for Eurovision 2018.
This year’s theme was ‘Celebrate Diversity’ and although an overwhelming number of nations chose to send entries in the English language, a small number sang in their native tongue. This included French, Italian, Portuguese and Hungarian being represented, as well as a first time appearance for Belorussian and Romansh. Here are the nominees for the category Best Song Not In The English Language at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017.
Alma will follow in the footsteps of Amir when she represents France in tonight’s Eurovision Grand Final. She will sing a sing called ‘Requiem’ which was penned by Nazim Khaled who was also responsible for France’s 2016 song ‘J’ai Cherche’. How does ‘Requiem’ stack up?
