    Next year will be exactly 40 years since the last time
    FRANCE had won the EuroVision back in 1977.
    So the majority of the french eurofans have NEVER seen their country
    winning the EuroVision yet!
    Especially the young/younger generation.
    I’m 30 years old [not so young like many other eurofans]
    & I was born ever 9 whole years after their last victory in ESC!

    France’s last victory was in the old vintage years/era of EuroVision.
    Since 1977 everything has changed after 40 years / 4 decades.

    That year 1977 we received the famous WOW signal from space.
    That indicates that we are ”not alone” & there are aliens somewhere far away from us in the universe.

    Amir’s 6th place is still very successful result.
    His live performance was not winner material
    so I can see why not only he lost the victory but he ”only” finished 6th.
    He managed to finish 3rd in the juries & 9th in televoting with 109 points.

    Its still great placing for a country like France that has rarely finished in the top10 in the last 10-15 years.

    FRANCE’s full result: 6th/26 with 257 points.
    TELEVOTING: 9th voted by 26/41 countries with 109 points
    JURIES: 3rd voted by 26/41 countries with 148 points
