France: Interview with Pauline Chagne from Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez! (Video)

After the announcement of her participation in this year’s national final of France, Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez !, Pauline Chagne speaks exclusively to EurovisionFun and Apostolos Bogiannos and Apostolοs Matamis.

Pauline is one of the twelve finalists in the French national final for Eurovision 2022, and will try to represent her country with the song “Nuit Pauline”.

I received a message on Instagram something that I initially thought was funny since I really wanted to take part. I immediately showed it to my composer to tell me if it was true and he advised me to answer, which I eventually did. I submitted several songs, videos and photos and after several discussions we came up with “Nuit Pauline” with which I am finally competing. The song conveys how we can write our own story. From a cinematic point of view, through this, I make a statement about so many great French artists we want to look like. It has 80s influences, energy and is a source of inspiration. The song was not written for Eurovision from the beginning. was the song I wanted from last November as my debut for my music, my first album, and I’m so happy it was selected for the French national final.

Regarding her stage appearance in the national final, she stated that:

My song is quite festive. Since I was a child, I have been in a scene, from Christmas parties to classical music performances. And for that, my whole life will be on stage, it will be a celebration on stage conveying the message that we can write our story. Of course I will not be alone and I will have my harp. It will be reminiscent of France, and while it will have influences from the 80s, it will also be modern since we live in 2022. There will be lights and effects. I want to convey a look at French cinema, the music of the song may be international but France is what I represent.

Although she likes all the fellow songs, she singles out those of Saam, Soa, Marius and Joan.

Her favorite French entries are those of Barbara Pravi (2021), Bilal Hassani (2019), Amir (2016) and Marie Myriam (1977) while from the competition in general she stands out the entries of Hooverphonic (Belgium 2021), Daði og Gagnamagnið (Iceland 2021 ) and Stefania (Greece 2021).

If he chose some Eurostars to work with, they would be Barbara Pravi (France 2021) and Conchita Wurst (Austria 2014).

Inspired by Barbara Pravi, with her victory in the national final she wants to take the stage of Eurovision and spread the elegance of French music all over the world, bringing something that is quite festive, a party on the stage of the competition. She hopes her song will be a “guilty pleasure” for the audience that will watch it.

Shortly before the end of the interview, Pauline gave us a part of her participation, even playing with the harp that will be on the stage of the national final!
