๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท The English chorus “broke the ears” of the French Minister of Culture

"French productions in foreign languages are also a way to spread French culture"

The French Minister of Culture said that the English chorus in Tom Leeb’s Eurovision 2020 entry “broke his ears”. He still believes that France is being represented with pride, even in a foreign language.

“It is an independent choice of France Tรฉlรฉvisions”

During a parliamentary hearing on Tuesday, the Minister of Culture Franck Riester was asked about France’s entry for Eurovision 2020 by a member of parliament Jacques Krabal.

It is true that the refrain is in English, it broke my ears a little this morning on the radio. It is an independent choice of France Tรฉlรฉvisions. But I sent a message of it being a surprise that the chorus of the song is written in English.

Franck Riester says that everyone must set the example to ensure that France is represented everywhere with pride, even though French productions in foreign languages are also a way to spread French culture.

Tom Leeb and the broadcaster France Tรฉlรฉvisions revealed the French entry for Eurovision Song Contest 2020 last week. The song “The Best In Me” is written by Thomas G:son, Peter Bostrรถm, John Lundvik, Amir Haddad and Lรฉa Ivanne together with Tom Leeb himself.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmรถ and been to all the contests ever since. I'm studying journalism and I love music โ€” you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
