The French broadcaster France2 has arranged a national final with two semi finals. Those semi finals have been recorded in a studio. From each semi final four candidates have been determined by the national jury, which consisted of Amir, Isabelle Boulay and Christopher Willem. An additional international jury of Christer Björkman (Sweden), Olga Salamakha (Belarus) and Nicola Caligiore had also the same weight of voting rights.
The Grand nation final in France will be on January 27th and broadcasted on France2, TV5monde and also via live streams.

About me: My first Eurovision I watched was in 1987, Brussels. Since then I am following the ESC with great enthusiasm. The greatest fascination for me is the fact that the entire Europe is watching the show at that specific night. Since 2010, Oslo I am a member of the eurovisionlive.com team. I had the chance to witness the second German victory with Lena. My biggest wish would be to have the orchestra back, as it used to be until 1998.
