Cologne 2002: Sandrine François – Il Faut Du Temps (France)
Ah, justice for the French comes in 2002. In Cologne, there can only be one winner here really. 2002 was, like 1999, an awful Eurovision year. It’s just… terrible. How on actual earth France didn’t win this is beyond me. It is the greatest mystery in Eurovision history.
Maybe the time for French chansons had passed when Sandrine did this, but it really should have been revived right there on the spot. An impeccable voice, impeccable lyrics and, something that speaks for the French: The language. Perhaps the most beautiful language of Europe.
An easy French victory here and there’s no doubt that Paris should be the host city for 2003.
