France at Eurovision
France hasn’t used a national selection to choose their Eurovision entry since Twin Twin in 2014. Unfortunately, Moustache finished last in the grand final scoring two points. In the past two years, France’s fortunes have turned around significantly. The internally selected Amir and Alma finished in 6th place and 12th place in 2016 and 2017 respectively. In particular, Amir has gone on to become a major star in France following his Eurovision success.
Will you be tuning in for Destination Eurovision 2018? Do you like the concept of the show? Who are you the most excited to see among the rumoured acts so far? What is your favorite French entry at Eurovision?
