The choice of the French representative in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest will be made internally once again. France Télévisions were studying the possibility of holding a televised selection after some changes in the board of the broadcaster. Nevertheless, plans for a national final in 2012 remain untouched.

Due to the new appointments in the board of France Télévisions and its Enternainment service, preparations for a televised national selection wouldn't have been completed within the deadline set by the European Broadcasting Union for the national finals – the evening of the Heads of Delegation meeting on March 13th, reports.

The French public broadcasting corporation is still interested in carrying out an open and televised Eurovision selection for 2012.

The last time France held a national final to choose its Eurovision representative was back in 2007, when Les Fatals Picards won the show Et si on gagnait?
