by Victor Hondal 53 views

French broadcaster France 3 have decided upon their representative in Düsseldorf. 21-year-old opera singer Amaury Vassili will be the Frech ambassador in Eurovision 2011. Despite his young age, he is already a successful artist on home soil, having sold 250,000 copies of his debut album.

The song with which Amaury will compete in Eurovision is yet unknown. He will be seeking France's first win since 1977, when Marie Myriam entered the Eurovision hall of fame with the song L'oiseau et l'enfant.

Besides that, according to Le Parisien, Laurent Boyer, a popular French animator who used to work for private channel M6 and Catherine Lara, a well-known singer, were named as this year's commentators of the Eurovision Song Contest final to be held on May 14th in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Below you can watch some of Amaury's performances.
