France: National Final to decide their Eurovision 2023 act!
A while ago, France Télévisions has confirmed that they will choose the song that will represent them at Eurovision 2023 the same way they have been for two years. With their national final, C’est vous qui décidez.
Today, the public French broadcaster announced its plans for the 2022-2023 TV season, which includes plans for both Eurovision 2023 and an announcement that the country’s act for Junior Eurovision 2023 in the city of Yerevan, Armenia, will be presented in “a few weeks”.
Eurovision France: C’est vous qui décidez will be presented by France 2, the channel presenting Eurovision in France. The national final C’est vous qui décidez’ was used for the first time in 2021 and brought France its best result of the 21st century when Barbara Pravi finished second in Rotterdam.
2023 will be the third year that this national final will be used to pick the song that will represent France in the Eurovision Song Contest .
France has chosen its representative in the Contest through a national final every year since 2018, with the exception of 2020. In 2022, Alvan & Ahez represented France with the song “Fulenn”. They finished 24th in the Grand Final with 17 points.
At this time no more info regarding the selection has been announced, last year submissions for Eurovision France: C’est Vous Qui Décidez’ 2022 opened in late June of 2021. This means it is likely we could expect a call for songs and artists soon.
