France 3 has confirmed to esctoday.com that Amadine Bourgeois has been selected via an internal selection to represent France at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest.
Amandine will represent France at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest with the song L’enfer et moi, written by Boris Bergman and composed by David Salkin.
33-year-old Amandine enjoys fame at home in France; she shot to fame when she won the 6th edition of the musical television show Nouvelle Star. Amandine released her first album 20 m2 in 2009, selling 60,000 copies in France and more than 70,000 copies throughout Europe. In 2012 Amandine released her 2nd album Sans Amour, Mon Amour.
Last week a special selection committee consisting of various personalities from the French music industry (writers, composers, singers, managers, lyricists etc) and representatives from France Televisions (France 3 and France Ô) met up in order to select the 2013 French Eurovision entry and representative. France had announced their method and mechanism to select their 2013 Eurovision entry last month.
