la marra eurovison france 2023

It’s official! France opted for an internal selection this year and chose La Zarra to represent the country in Liverpool on May.

After two years of holding a national final with Eurovision France : C’est vous qui décidez !, France decided to go back to an internal selection to choose its representative for Eurovision. And today, the French delegation finally revealed the artist: it’s La Zarra, a very well known name in France and abroad. The song is said to be released in a couple weeks, and we can’t wait!

La Zarra to represent France in Liverpool

la zarraLa Zarra is a Canadian-Moroccan singer who released an album called Traîtrise in 2021. She’s signed with Indifference Prod and has two hit songs: “Tu t’en iras” (2021) and “Sans moi” (2022).

She also recently collaborated with Slimane, very famous French singer, on his album Chroniques d’un Cupidon on the song “Les amants de la colline” (2022).

According to the latest information, the song will be in French and will feature different genres, with a hint of modernity. Moreover, we should expect a mysterious and surprising vibe from the song.

On her Instagram post, La Zarra says she’s “happy to finally announce the news” and that her mother used to sing “L’Oiseau et l’enfant” by Marie Myriam to her. The song is actually the last winning song for France at the Eurovision Song Contest, back in 1977.

France wants to win Eurovision

In 2021, Barbara Pravi won Eurovision France : C’est vous qui décidez ! with “Voilà” and placed 2nd at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, 25 points behind the winners Mäneskin. And in 2022, Alvan & Ahez won the national final and placed 24th in Turin with “Fulenn”.

And after winning the Junior Eurovision for the second time with Lissandro’s “Oh Maman” in Yerevan, Alexandra Redde-Amiel, the Head of the French Delegation, assured they “want to win” Eurovision this year.

Let’s hope La Zarra’s song conquers the heart of the eurofans, the televote and the juries in Liverpool in May. As a member of the Big Five, France will automatically perform in the Grand Final which will be held on 11 May.
