Who will represent France? The answer will be known after two shows to be broadcast on France 3 on Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th March. France 3 earlier selected five singers to take part in the French national selections.
French record companies had proposed 13 candidates to represent France at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. Five of them have been selected for the French finals: Ortal, Lionel Tim, Marjorie Galluccio, Karine Trecy and Christophe Héraut. All of them will present their song during the final on 15th March in which the televoting audience and a professional jury will make the final decision.
But there is more than one challenge for the finalists. Beside singing their own song for Kiev, they will sing in duet with some of the biggest stars such as Lara Fabian (Luxembourg 1988 – Croire), Lââm, Hélène Ségara and Liane Foly, perform Eurovision medleys and sing a song guided by the piano only.
The day before the final, on 14th March, a documentary will be aired showing the selection of the candidates and ending with a presentation of the five finalists.
