esctoday.com partner site, belgovision.com, is reporting that France will be represented in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo with a song written by Mr Eurovision Johnny Logan, according to the German magazine Bunte.

Johnny Logan, who won the Eurovision Song Contest three times in 1980, 1987 and as a writer in 1992, would have been asked by the French public broadcaster to write the French entry.

Johnny Logan told in an interview with the German magazine Bunte that "I was asked if I wanted to write a song and I said yes." The australian born Irish singer won the Eurovision Song Contest twice with What's Another Year and Hold Me Now and as composer of the song Why Me? performed by Linda Martin.

However, currently the Eurovision Song Contest only comes second in Johnny Logan's private life. The singer fights against an alcohol addiction. "I want to win that fight first," Johnny Logan said. He did not elaborate on whether he also wants to sing for France in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 and become the successor of Patricia Kaas, who defended the French colours in Moscow earlier this year.
