The French entry J’ai cherché was released in January 2016, before being chosen to represent France in the Eurovision Song Contest. The original release, which lasts for 3:32 minutes, had to be re-mixed in order to stand with the Eurovision limit of three minutes.
The videoclip of the French entry in its original length was released in the beginning of March and the Eurovision version, featuring a shorter intro, was released recently.
The music video was directed by Francis Cutter of HK Prod and follows the lives of two young people at the start of their professional careers; one as a ballet dancer and another as a taekwondo fighter.
Amir rose to fame in France after competing in the 2014 edition of The Voice of France, where he reached the final. In 2006, he competed in Kochav Nolad, the Israeli version of Pop Idol, with less success.
