French national broadcaster France 3 is about to launch its search for the country’s next Eurovision song and representative. On 26 November, a committee consisting of music professionals will meet to select 3 tracks out of all the entries submitted to represent the country in Copenhagen next year. And you could be part of the adventure.

France 3 and radio partner France Bleu are given the opportunity to one TV viewer to be part of the above mentioned committee and represent the French audience in the selection process for the country’s next Eurovision entry. To be the lucky one, one should answer first a series of 3 questions related to the Eurovision Song Contest. A draw among those having answered correctly the questionnaire will be organised later on to determine the winner.

At a later stage, the 3 selected songs will be introduced during Natasha St-Pier‘s show Les chansons d’abord on France 3 and the audience will be invited to vote for the song they wish to see representing France in Denmark. The 2001 French representative will thus host France’s 2014 Eurovision national final, the country’s first national final since 2007 and Les Fatals Picards. Who will succeed Amandine Bourgeois on the Eurovision stage? More details soon.
