This year France will have a national final again. Last year’s singer Tom Leeb, could unfortunately not represent France due to the cancellation of the ESC. Tom Leeb did not want to return 2021 like other singers. A national final in France happened in the years before and should increase the interest and awareness of the French audience.

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
