Who will be Madame Monsieur’s successor?

(Au P’Tit Bonheur)
|Madame la Paix|
|Tous les deux|
|Sois un bon fils|
|Ce qui me blesse|

|La voix d’Aretha|
Like last year, each artist will first sing a cover of another song, then their own entry, with postcards introducing both performances. An expert panel consisting of André Manoukian, Vitaa & Christophe Willem will comment on the performances, but will not vote.
The voting itself will take place at the end of the show, and will be split between a televote (50%) and the votes of five international jurors, whose names were announced at the end of the week. The fours acts with the most points will go to the final.
The covers are quite diverse, from French classics (Édith Piaf), to international hits (Ed Sheeran, Abba) and modern French music (Claudio Capéo, Amir, and Calogero). Interestingly, Sylvàn Areg will cover a song that he cowrote, under his real name Sylvain Hagopian. Battista will sing both the most famous and the less known song, since “Parlà più piano” is the Italian cover of “Speak Softly Love”, The Godfather‘s legendary theme. The cover was made in the 1970’s by Gianni Morandi, who represented Italy at Eurovision in 1970 (with “Occhi di Ragazza”).
