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.

CASANOVA: I want people to dance and sing together ! Let them forget their problems for a few minutes!

Eurovision Fun had the honor to host an other exclusive interview with one more candidate of the French national Final Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez!. His stage name is Casanova (real name Yoann Casanova), his entry is called Tutti  and he is going to perform it in French and Corsican. He is 27 years old and before he enters the music industry he used to work as a fireman. The French national final is expected to take place in January 2021.


Interview with Casanova


What’s your favorite French entry in the history of Eurovision ?

For the song and for the artist he is, I choose Patrick Fiori with “Mama Corsica” in 1993!
He represented France as I would like to represent it! He is very authentic, and a true French with all his cultural values !

Why did you wanna compete at the Eurovision concept ?

I have loved Eurovision since I was little! This big and spectacular show has always attracted me and intrigued me! I like to see how each country feels music. And discover different styles, and sounds of the world.

What is the message of your song ?

I want people to dance and sing together ! Let them forget their problems for a few minutes! Especially during this time of global pandemic…
In today’s society I find that we have become increasingly individualistic, social networks make us believe that we are connected but really, we are far away from each other…
In my song, I want to tell that whatever happens , together we are stronger and we can overcome everything !
Through it, I would like to be the face of culture and values of each French region

What can we expect from your stage presence ?

My team and I will give everything to prepare you the best possible performance on stage ! I really want you to come and party with me ! I’m so excited !

Can you tell us more about yourself so we and your fans can know you better ?

My real name is Yoann CASANOVA, I live in Bastia, Corsica and I’m 27 years old ! I was Fireman before. I left everything for music !
I was lucky to be able to participate in The Voice France and reach to the Final !
I love SPORT !!! Running in the mountains and Football !

I wanna ask you if there was someone from the music industry that was your idol or role model ?

I don’t really have an idol but a lot artists inspire me! In France I admire for Jacques Brel forhis texts and his interpretation… Johnny Hallyday remains the way to be on stage, a real showman! More recently I’m listening to Stromae, Ed Sheeran and John Mayer !

How was your experience in The Voice ?

It was a great adventure about people, friendships and art… I learned a lot about myself and my emotions during this period when we were performing ! I have incredible memories of it !

Have you ever visited Greece ?

I have never been to Greece… I’ve seen so many wonderful pictures, I have friends who told me so beautiful things about it! I hope to get there as soon as I can !

*At the end of the interview Casanova thanked us for the support*

In closing, we would like to thank Casanova for his time and we would like to wish him the best of luck to his attempt to raise the Tricolour in Rotterdam 2021.

France: Listen to “Mon Alliée”, the country’s final version for Rotterdam

Tom Leeb’s Eurovision 2020 entry, “The Best In Me”, was announced in mid-February and shortly after French Culture Minister Franck Riester described the song’s English chorus as disturbing in response to a question from a center party LREM’s MP.

The issue went on to add that the French representative at Eurovision, which is a national contest, should proudly use the French language, stressing that it prefers the country’s representatives to sing in French and not win, rather than  with an English song.

When the tracks were due to expire, it became known that the title of the French entry had changed with the song now being titled “Mon Alliée”. Apart from the use of a French title, the track has undergone changes as the French have become more used to it, giving it what it had been stressed to lack.

Listen to the final version of France’s entry, “Mon Alliée”, below:
