France’s national broadcaster France 2 has been forced to announce their participant early following a leak. The broadcaster and the EBU have both confirmed that Amir Haddad will represent France in Stockholm with his hit “J’ai cherché” (I’ve been looking for).
The French choice, which will be sung in both French and English in Stockholm, has been a closely guarded secret for many weeks with a busy rumour mill making the rounds on social media, however it was in the last week or so that it became likely for Amir to be the French choice.
Amir Haddad, a French singer of Israeli, Moroccan, Tunisian and Spanish descent, found fame as a finalist in The Voice France and also took part in Israeli singing competition Kokhav Nolad, where he became noted for often singing in the French language.
A music video is expected for the song in the coming days, but you can watch the song’s lyric video below.
