#FRANCE: Destination Eurovision hopefuls announced

France Télévisions has revealed its format to hopefully win the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. As for the contest in Lisbon, 18 acts will participate in Destination Eurovision. But who are they?

Aysat – Comme une grande

Battista Acquaviva – Passio

Bilal Hassani – Roi

Chimene Badi – Là-haut

Doutson – Sois un bon fils

Emmanuel Moire – La promesse

Florina – In the Shadow

Gabriella – On cherche encore (Never get enough)

Lautner – J’ai pas le temps

Mazy – Oulala

Naestro – Le brasier

Noémie – Ma petite famille

PhilipElise – Madame la paix

Seemone – Tous les deux

Silvàn Areg – Le petit Nicolas

The Divaz – La voix d’Aretha

Tracy de Sà – Por aqui

Ugo – Ce qui me blesse


The 18 acts will be split into two semi-finals, with a Grand Final made up of the best semi-finalists. The winner of the Destination Eurovision Grand Final will be selected by a mix of French public vote (50%) and the votes of 20 international juries (50%). Three expert judges will give their views on all the sings, but cannot vote. They are Christophe Willem, VITAA and André Manoukian. Amir has obviously gone back to doing his dentistry.

As saw in France, Destination Eurovision 2018 winners Madame Monsieur finished 13th in Lisbon with Mercy, despite being one of the favourites. France Télévisions must think they have a potentially winning formula. Here’s their performance in Lisbon.

Did you enjoy Destination Eurovision 2018? Will you be tuned in to the three shows early next year? Have you heard of any of the acts and is there a potential winner amongst them? Tell us what you think.
