The Eurovision action is ramping up once again tonight, as we are set to find out the third song of Rotterdam 2021, and the story continues in Norway and Lithuania. Europe has three shows for us to enjoy on this late January evening, so let’s walk #YOU through all of the Eurovision action tonight has in store!
FRANCE – Eurovision France – C’est vous qui décidez! (21:05 CET)
The headline act this evening is undoubtedly in France, where the first of the Big 5 to select their song for Eurovision 2021 will show their hand for Rotterdam. 12 songs are taking part in the French national final, a return to the format following the internal selection of Tom Leeb in 2020.
The twelve participants and their songs are;
- 21 Juin le Duo – Peux-tu me dire?
- Ali – Paris me dit (Yalla ya helo!)
- Amui – Maeva
- Andriamad – Alléluia
- Barbara Pravi – Voilà
- Casanova – Tutti
- Céphaz – On a mangé le soleil
- Juliette Moraine – Pourvu qu’on m’aime
- LMK – Magique
- Philippine – Bah non
- PONY X – Amour fou
- Terence James – Je t’emmènerai danser
In the first round of voting, the public will decide the top seven songs, with an additional qualifier being chosen by the jury. The remaining eight songs will then face a 50/50 split between the jury and the public vote, with the winner being chosen to represent France in Eurovision 2021.
The jury for the show consists of Amir (head juror), Chimène Badi, Michèle Bernier, Agustín Galiana, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Élodie Gossuin, Duncan Laurence, André Manoukian, Marie Myriam and Natasha St-Pier.
