Paris, 8 November 2023
The Eurovision wheels turn faster in the 2024 season. After Belgium’s early announcement of Mustii and Malta’s earlier liveshows, France have announced their representative for the upcoming 2024 Eurovision Song Contest: none other than Slimane.
Slimane, who hails from Celles in the Seine-et-Marne department, is known for having won the fifth season of The Voice: la plus belle voix. Since then, he has released four albums, all of which reached a #1 position in the French charts, with equal successes in Belgium and Switzerland.
The French singer-songwriter will be perform a song called “Mon Amour” (My love) at the Eurovision Song Contest. Not much is known about his entry, but it is set to premiere tonight, at the Anne-Sophie Lapix news on France 2. Be sure to check the France 2024 thread on our forum, as our members will be following it live and can direct you to live links.
Slimane’s selection marks the second time in a row France went for a big name in their industry and the second time in a row they went for someone with North-African heritage, after La Zarra. Eurovision will make its return to the Swedish city of Malmö for the 2024 contest, after Loreen’s victory in Liverpool last year.
France’s track record at the Song Contest is decent, usually finishing near the middle of the pack with most of their entries. The 2021 contest sparked a positive outlier, when Barbara Pravi emerged as an early favourite to win the Contest with her song “Voilà”. Pravi eventually placed second to the unparallelled Måneskin.
Another article can be expected tonight, after “Mon Amour”‘s release, so stay tuned for more news!
