#FRA: Destination Eurovision Final preview

FRA: Destination Eurovision Final preview

Two shows down, and we’re at the business end of Destination Eurovision 2019. Ten songs have fallen away, and we’re down to eight. One of these will go forward to sing their hearts out in Tel Aviv, and bring to an end of 42 years for a sixth French win.

The eight songs in contention are:

Sylvàn Areg – Allez leur dire

Aysat – Comme une grande

Chimène Badi – Là-haut

Doutson – Sois un bon fils

The Divaz – La voix d’Aretha

Bilal Hassani – Roi

Emmanuel Moire – La promesse

Seemone – Tous les deux

We have a wide variety of styles to pick from, including soul, rap and ballad. Will it be a straight fight between Bilal Hassani and Seemone, who won their respective semi-finals. Or will another performer come through and steal it? Could Chimène Badi or Emmanuel More win? Emmanuel won the televote in his semi-final, ahead of Seemone.

The winner will be chosen by a 50/50 combination of international jury and televoting. This time, ten international jurors will cast their votes in this important show.

The jurors are:

Albania – Rona Nishliu (AL 12)

Belarus – Olga Salamakha

Cyprus – Alex Panayi (CY 95 and 00)

Germany – Christoph Pellander

Ireland – Michael Kealy

Israel – Doron Medalie

Italy – Nicola Calagiore

Russia – Ekaterina Orlova

Spain – Beatriz Luengo

Switzerland – Reto Peritz

We at Eurovision Ireland will be blogging all the action as it unfolds on Saturday night. It’ll be on France 2, TV5Monde and TV5Québec at 2100CET. You can also watch it on the websites.

Here’s Madame Monsieur at Destination Eurovision 2018.
