Last Friday, France Télévisions gathered a small group of journalists for a socially distant press conference in the iconic Apollo theater in Paris. In addition to presenting us the basic format of Eurovision France: You decide, the organizers also gave us something very special: 90-second live performances by each of the 12 finalists.
Our Colombian blogger Diego was on hand and waved his iPhone so we could share the magic live – uh magical – with all of you. In our video above, you can get a feel for how each contestant moves on stage and how their voice might hold up on the big night.
Eleven of the 12 acts were present at the press conference. Unfortunately, Terence James – who will sing “I’ll take you dancing” – had already had an engagement on the set of a movie. He always made his entry, albeit from a different location.
If you want to switch to a specific performance, the timestamps are listed below.
00:07 June 21 The Duo – “Can you tell me?”
01:38 Ali – “Paris tells me”
03:16 Amui – «Maeva»
04:53 Andriamad – “Alleluia”
