Gliwice-Silesia 2019

France to select their Junior Eurovision 2019 internally

Why fix something that's not broken...

After successfully returning to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest last year, France has confirmed they will be participating at Gliwice-Silesia.

France has been silent on the selection method of their entry, but in a recent interview, French Head of Delegation Steven Clérima revealed that France Télévisions will be selecting their entry internally.

A female singer once again?

Speaking with Euro Café, French Head of Delegation Steven Clérima has said that his objective is to achieve a top-three result this year in Gliwice-Silesia.

In addition to this, he has also confirmed that around thirty entries have been submitted for consideration. This is an increase, from the “dozen” of entries they have received for consideration in 2018. The delegation is now considering a shortlist of two female artists, both being “at the level of the artist [France] had last year.”

As with last year, Steven has confirmed that France will be revealing their entry at the later part of the season, as he thinks this strategy will be beneficial for France once again.
