Eurovision France, c'est vous qui décidez

France Télévisions has announced that ‘Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez’, will be held in January.

The French public broadcaster has today presented the first details of its new selection process ‘Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez’. The selection is set to take place in January and will be hosted by commentator and television presenter Stephane Bern.

The national selection will be hosted by Stephane Bern, the current French commentator for the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final.

A total of twelve acts will compete in the one night show that will be hosted by a city in regional France. The selection is the first time since 2019 that the French public will be involved in selecting their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.

The deadline for submission of entries has been completed and we are now waiting for the exact date of the French national final, as well as the announcement of the finalists.

The HoD gave a few hints about the format of Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez! She confirmed that the national final would involve a public vote, but was less clear about whether the show would also have a jury vote. At the time she said, “The public will get the power of choice. Regarding the jury, everything is still open now.” However, it is possible that by now, the voting format has been decided.

Redde-Amiel also confirmed that the new national final would have a different format to Destination Eurovision. The previous national final format had involved two semi-finals and a grand final, with all the competing acts internally selected by the broadcaster after liaising with record labels. For Eurovision France, the broadcaster accepted public submissions.

Tom Leeb had been internally selected by France Télévisions to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Following the cancellation of the contest and the broadcast of Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light, it was decided that Tom would not return in 2021.

Over the years, France has used both national finals and internal selection to choose its act for Eurovision. The most recent national final was Destination Eurovision, which ran from 2018 to 2019. However, for Eurovision 2020, France TV internally selected the singer Tom Leeb. But now France will return to a national final.

Back in June, Redde-Amiel explained the broadcaster’s decision to return to a national final instead of internally selecting Tom Leeb for 2021:

“You have to look at it in context. Tom Leeb had been internally selected. Covid arrived and Eurovision was cancelled. Eurovision is one of our strongest brands. We couldn’t let our audience go another year without it. We talked about it with Tom and we decided to rally the public around this event by creating Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez!.”

France is going to hold a national final after two years. In 2018 and 2019, the format “Destination Eurovision” was used, which did not bring the desired results. France’s representative at Eurovision 2020 would be Tom Leeb with the song “The Best In Me”.
