#FinaleWeek: The Best Of France’s Past


France have successfully won the Eurovision Song Contest five times – however this could’ve been six had Sweden not won the tiebreaker in Rome, back in 1991. In 1969, there was no tiebreaker, so France shared the top spot. Below are the winning entries from France over the years.

1958: Andre Claveau – “Dors, mon amour”
