I feel so sorry for France.
It's one of the only countries sticking to their roots, and not trying to win Eurovision with an Eurovision song, but with a quality song
They've been SO underrated since 2007 up to now :'(

While I agree that most of the French songs have been underrated since 2007, I would like to add that it's mostly the delegation's fault. They just can never seem to stage a song correctly. In fact, I think that they are one of the worst countries ever at staging a song... The staging for 2007 was ridiculous, 2008 was funny but off-putting, 2010 was okay, 2011 was over the top with all the pyros, 2012 was just plain absurd, 2013 was good but a little too strong for an opener... The only entry that I think had a decent staging was 2009 and that got 8th. So, I think that that says it all. xshrug

Great news for France, I hope the UK try it as well. What could work is to have the big 5 + host voting in that semi perform their song during the voting time period. That way they get SF exposure and don't loose their big 5 status. I seriously think the big 5 does stop us from doing as well as we could. Singing in the SF would work well.

apparently, they want to compete in the SF like the other countries but they don't want to take part at the voting, and thus they'd automatically be qualified.

How is it ridiculous? the big 5 countries in that SF could easily sing their sing during the voting or after the qualifiers are announced. It would allow the big 5 songs to get the exposure the rest get and put them on a equal level going into the final. As it stands the Big 5 are at a disadvantage going into the final with hardly anyone hearing the song.

The big 5 should perform 3 in each semifinal 3 in one and 3 in the other.

Would Love an Eurovision in Paris, I Would Love Indila, But she is Pretty Famous in France for what i have heard, I hope Something good The Upcoming year...
And with a Good Staging, and Not that Cheap Shite France 3 does every years.

Look at Amaury's Performance, that Was Perfection... I mean the Staging and Etcetera.

Actually, people aren't that sad, though poor Twin Twins have been insulted all day long Sunday :(
But people think we are fated to be last and really doesn't care. You know in France, people say that Eurovision is our annual European citizen chore...

But there are more and more people asking to withdraw... Though France 3 defends participation by saying it is very cheap to enter... It costs less to send a bad act than anything else broadcasted. Not to forget they absolutely don't want to host for anything...

I suppose they talk about us, but since France 3 is talking about their wonderful views for 2015, I suppose the'll be back. Well they have a big project. Have a real nil point. they sadly didn't manage to, but they are still hopeful for 2015.

What is great with France 3 is that we are in the contest since 1956, our HoD since 3 years and the director of programs (who choses herself the song) since 2005, but they explain us every year that they discovber Eurovision and doesn't have understood all its rules ! :lol:

I see.
I thought the situation with RTP was bad, but to be honest it's not comparable to France. RTP shows some respect to the contest and doesn't bash it as a joke, thankfully. Our HoD will change next year, hopefully the same could happen with France and both countries can start a new life in this contest!

No. I definitely think going with unknown, new talent is the way to go for France. The French music industry is so vibrant and strong that I find it hard to believe that there isn't at least one person who could get France into at least the Top 5. An unknown artist won't have as much pressure on their shoulders either; they can just focus on their performance instead of worrying about how this will affect their career. And, maybe, just maybe, sneak in a great result. ;) Also, somebody new and young will be more willing to take the risk of going to Eurovision, instead of somebody more famous and established. It's also important to remember that none of the last five winners were famous before they won. (Rybak, Lena, Ell & Nikki, Loreen, Emmelie were fresh artists in their countries when they won.)



But there are more and more people asking to withdraw... Though France 3 defends participation by saying it is very cheap to enter... It costs less to send a bad act than anything else broadcasted. Not to forget they absolutely don't want to host for anything...

France 3 definitely seemed like they wanted to host in 2011 with Bruno Berberes telling the media that they had enough money to host... :D

To be honest, I think deep down, every country that enters wants to win. Even though they might say they don't, they really do. Just look at The Netherlands and Austria. For years, they've done so poorly that people in those countries have built a terrible outlook on Eurovision. But now that they've just come first and second, Eurovision is suddenly amazingly popular in those countries again. ;)

ariadne24lucerne

I would be okay with the voice's star since weeks of competition is supposed to say most of them are able to sing live. In theory.

Anyway it's all about the song i personnaly think that, save awful twin-twin, most of the artists who represented us were quite good, but they the extreme majority of them deserved a much better song.

I always thought France 3 was like so many movies producers. They are like ' Let's make a movie about Dinosaurs or Edith Piaf, super original' and they hire a director and that's it.

But no, you need a good director, good writing, costumes, cinematography etc. A good idea at the start doesn t mean a good song or a good movie, it s supposed to be the beginning of the work

When her career in music tumbled down (like all the persons she began with, music careers are usually very short in France, except the biggest stars), she made reality TV and created the character of the blonde who says tupid things all day long, called now (évangélismes) like :
-I've got a friend who died, but not of her own accord
-(to her dog) You are fat, but so fat from everywhere that you look slim
-The first time I posed naked was for a good cause : to support the stutterers who stutters...
-The female of the sheep is a "she-sheep" ? (we have 2 very different words in ::fr) Because... they look alike.
-This butter is so good, almost as good as cheese...
-The water is so transparent that the boat looks floating !
-It's the Brad Pitt of the horses...

And so on...

Obviously, the persons who push her to take part want to mock the contest... xshrug

Fun fact this morning, has-been Swedish-Estonian singer Indra said she had been contacted by TF1 to sing in a trio with Régine and Eve Angeli in Eurovision 2015 to sing a number of French Can-Can. xrofl3

Poor her, she thought that was real ! xrofl3xrofl3xrofl3xrofl3xrofl3

Though she's another infamous candidate.. xfacepalm xscared

No. The only evolution I may see there, is that the contest is relegated from France 3 to France 4 or even France Ô (as the semi-final). But FTV won't let the ESC go to another broadcaster.

Anggun is a great vocalist. She's able to pull off very good vocals on ballads. But that song was too high pitched for her. Anyway, it was a stupid idea to send that song they believed to sound "Eurovision"... French Eurovision entrants hasn't understood they could ask other composers than their usual ones when it's Eurovision time... And as they don't watch Eurovision, they focus on a supposed Eurovision style...


#Regine4eurovision xcheer she's an example of the sort of fresh modern music ESC needs. France will obviously win next year with her.

But after La Moustache, I think that France 3 will resign even more and that we'll have even more unknown acts (and awfully bad acts) entering the selections. :(

Eurovision in France is a desperate cause... All the more as curiously the management of France 3 is the only one who never change ! :lol: And now we lost Bruno, and have this HoD who says after each year with the Head of Programs of France 3 that they don't really understand what is Eurovision ! xfacepalm...

But it seems that I'm... OFF TOPIC ! :o :oops:

That sucks, I did quite like "Sans Toi" it's pretty good, especially the acoustic version. I think ESC viewers would have much preferred the uptempo version.

Interest of France 3 in Eurovision is near zero (if not beyond ! xrofl3)

Apparently, submissions were mainly forgotten ex-talent show contestants with ultra-dull aweful songs ! :lol: And the very violent Moustache-bashing won't persuade many people to enter the contest... Well, it's France you know... xfacepalm

BTW, Les Chansons d'abord, which served as our infamous national final ( :lol:) won't be hosted by Natasha anymore, because she said she has to concentrate on her new album and she can't do everything well. It will be host by Dave now.

She's popular enough that people know her name outside of France, and she's capable enough of delivering songs to its full potential.
Eurovision might give her a nice boost then! :mrgreen:. Why don't we just take over as HOJ for France? :lol: We'll do such a great job!

Last week, Le Bien Public, a newspaper from Bourgondy, published an interview with Natasha Saint-Pier.
France Monde | Natasha Saint-Pier : « Il nous faut une chanson en anglais pour l (http://www.bienpublic.com/actualite/2014/08/10/il-nous-faut-une-chanson-en-anglais-pour-l-eurovision)

Here's the translation for the question concerning Eurovision


You're involved in the ESC: you represented France in 2001 with Je N'ai que Mon Ame (4th), you commented the last edition. According to you, why is France not successful ?

NSP: France is a cultural exception so, at the Eurovision, it remains a cultural exception. This year, with Twin Twin, we presented a song with very nice lyrics, with two meanings. On the surface, it is funny but it was about the consumption society. But the lyrics, in French, don't touch the Europeans because they do not understand it. We need a song where the words are secondary, focusing on the music and the arrangements, or a song in English. I also think that a song mixing languages could be a good tactic in order to rise in the ranking.

If we send a song in English, I think we could ask Celkilt or Nadia Farés to represent us.

I think he'd get France back on track. Toinou told me about him a while ago and i've been quite besotted with him ever since, although his older music is very difficult to come by. He's incredibly impressive live, does have that kind of shock factor than Conchita has.. Cezar did pretty darn well with a piece of Eurotrash. The public loved him, the juries wrecked him. I believe they would be a lot kinder to Luc Arbogast. His whole vibe is very hot at the moment, what with Game of Thrones popularity (he even covers the theme on his new album). I really want him for France and i'd say he'd be quite a realistic wish as well. He (strangely) went on the French version of The Voice so he's obviously up for competition. I would think he'd be right at home on the Eurovision stage. I want him xheat

My almost neighbour for Eurovision ! :lol: I should tell him if I meet him in the supermarcket. Never happened to me, but it often happens to one of my friends ! :lol:

Well, the national final may be full of unknown talentless people (as they won't work on it...) and Eve Angeli is preparing her come-back for next year, so be sure she'll take part ! :lol:

But, if our broadcaster had any cleverness xfacepalm we should propose Marie-Mai. She's the Québec top artist at the moment. She's bigger than any French pop artist, though when she tried a French career, it ended in a huge flop. She appeared on a French-Canadian show last week and seems eager to have a real European career. And Québecois are always willing to do Eurovision. Marie-Elaine Thibert who though is huge in Québec even dared to enter the infamous swiss platform and was eliminated with Etienne Drapeau at the first stage xfacepalm. Add that Canadian are way more professional singers than us xfacepalm

I'm afraid they can fix it in their pervert minds ! xrofl3 They found a way to earn money easily. They so don't seem to care of the eventual result... xfacepalm
But maybe it will only be like the choose of Amandine's song. As far as what I've understood of backstage rumours, the final seemed to have been set up because Twin Twin was the first choice but there wasn't a consensus around their participation...
Though, the secret comittee chosing the songs has been criticised a lot... So maybe a change can still happen... But I'm not hopeful at all ! :(
Anyway, Les Chansons d'abord won't exist anymore. It will be the same thing, but with a different name and hosted by the Frenchest of Dutch Dave. :)

Oh why ? Québecois are our brothers ! :) Most important is not passport, it's ability to speak French. :) We're not obsessed with nationality, but with language which is quite different ! :lol: You know, Sofia Mestari is morrocan, Ortal is Israelian, Cerrada is Belgian, Jessy Matador and Anggun became French... That's definitely not a matter at all...
And I wonder if there is still a single person remaining in France to want to enter Eurovision. Maybe we'll have to borrough Valentina Monetta or Claudia Faniello with fastened lessons of French ! xrofl3

Or we can send Africa to Eurovision xbow

Ok guys, I found some quite interesting news. It seems that there will be another channel that will take in charge of Eurovision in France.

Indeed, in its new press document about the year 2014-2015, France 2 (the second French channel after TF1 and before France 3) wrote an important phrase on page 4.


Sans oublier le succès de ses grands événements en
direct dans le domaine du divertissement, comme la Fête de la musique et
bientôt l’Eurovision, ou dans le domaine de l’information à l’occasion des
nombreuses commémorations autour de la Première et de la Seconde Guerre
mondiale.

Translation: Not to forget the success of great event in the field of entertainment, such like the "Fête de la Musique" and soon Eurovision, or in the field of numerous commemorations concerning both WW.

It seems that our last place and the delegation sent by France 3 to Copenhagen became a subject of concern for "France Télévision". I would be glad if it means a better and particularly a franker mentality towards Eurovision in France.

I read carefully and OMFG yes.

It looks like a confirmitation :

THE FINAL OF EUROVISION 2015 IS ON FRANCE 2 !

If so, it will mean that all the selection process will be changed. France 2 has a modern team promotes great music. The head of entertainment of France 2 is a great lady, a great producer, who has worked with the whole Paris. She knows her job. She has great ideas. I really hopes they will tell us more

So many countries are booking their ideas up for 2015. Austria and The Netherlands in the first two places has really had a great affect on countries who don't take ESC seriously. France is just as bad as the UK in ESC (if not worse), so it will be interesting to see what happens for next year.

I found out that it's Nathalie André who asked Conchita Wurst to take part in La Fête de la Musique, which was the first time that a Eurovision winner went to a TV show in France. She said she was so amazed by Conchita and her great song that she wanted that great singer in France. And she had rough negociations as she did want Conchita.

Nathalie André will then be responsible of Eurovision. She's a well-known producer. She worked for a long time for Endemol and TF1, and became famous as the "headmaster" of the Star Academy. She's said to have one of the biggest address book of Paris ! :lol: She arrived in 2011 to France 2 in her job. She replaced the former responsible for Eurovision, Nicolas Pernikoff. Then all the fans cheered as she was to be responsible of Eurovision. But it was given back to her colleague of France 3 Marie-Claire Mézerette who already had it before 2009 and says everywhere that Eurovision is a joke and an old-fashioned show we have to make fun of...

Nathalie André certainly knows what to do, at least I believe it. And I'm sure it's an improvement for us but above all for out great show. It's a shame that a Big 5 member like us dare to take it as a joke... :(

If anyone from the French delegation/committee is reading this thread. Please be wise and choose someone good and pen a song that people will actually enjoy listening.

No more "Show à l'américain," no more "Papaoutai" rip-off.

Though it won't happen either, I wouldn't mind Najoua Belyzel participating. She'll be releasing a new single called "Que Sont-Ils Devenus ?" soon, as well as a new album in 2015 entitled "De La Lune Au Soleil". I guess she has nothing to lose, if she really wants an exposure for her comeback, that'd be a good option imo.

Besides I think it's far better then last years "Silent Storm" which everyone went wild over or 'Ég Á Líf' in 2013

Rayman
5th December 2014, 01:26
If it's really our entry for 2015, I think it can do well (or not of course).
It sounds perhaps old-fashioned but come on, the last French entry that reached the top 10 has also been viewed as old fashioned (Kass' Et s'il fallait le faire). Anggun, Amandine and Bourgeois have a younger and fresher style but they all fell into the bottom 5 (Twin Twin being the unluckiest).

It lacks intensity but Vincent Niclo is able, according to me, to work out this aspect, as Amandine Bourgeois did for her final note.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwqlxZk_NQA

Here's one live. What do you think ? In any case, we cannot deny that Vincent Niclo is a far more serious choice than Twin Twin concerning Eurovision.

Btw Vincent Niclo would be someone France 3 would have sent :lol: definitely, it's old-fashioned. Personally, I don't like him at all: his music, his looks, his voice are insipid. And one cannot compare him with Patricia Kaas, she has charisma.

pressman
5th December 2014, 18:11
So that Vincent Niclo would be something like France's tribute to Didrik Solli Tangen. And we all know how that ended... Still, it is quite fine that he can even sing wearing that jacket. Did he borrow it from his son? Accept your size, man!

I don't know if someone has mentioned her, but something like Nolwenn Leroy would be BRILLIANT. Bring in some decent Breton flavour, France!

pressman I doubt Nolwenn would ever consider it at the moment. :( She would be a great performer, that's for sure, but she has a lot to do now that she gained success with "Bretonne" and "Ô Filles De L'eau".

Yes, but I can't see anyone but a newcomer singing a song in the like. We have yet to see France 2 "taste" in music, hopefully they won't follow the footsteps of France 3. I'm afraid Vincent Niclo is likely to represent us :? it's a new song, its length is 3min, a famous singer wrote the lyrics + Vincent seems like an ideal package for many I guess. If "Sognu" got the 15th place in 2011, I don't think this would fare any better.

I'd even say, it's über meh :mrgreen:

I quite like Jusqu'a L'Ivresse... it's nice, but nothing particularly outstanding but it has potential. I wouldn't really object to that being the French entry but I am hoping for something a bit more stylish and modern.

As always I am excited what France will come up with. I am so much hoping for a french entry that will be able to fight for a win in Wien.
I really dont think that would be the case with Jusqu'a L'Ivresse - even though I do tend to like this style.

Yes, there is nothing wrong with the song, but it lacks something... emotions maybe? When I listen to this, I don't feel anything. And Niclo's flat voice does not help.

The song has apparently a partnership with TF1, which make it impossible to be the entry, as well as Escnation give us a false entrant every year, and that our broadcaster don't select any entrant that early, as they realise EUrovision exists not before February xfacepalm

Well, I was also surprised we got the artist AND the song so early. Normaly, in France , we have the artist revealed late November-early December (it was the case of Anggun), the song follows only in February.
But still, I cannot wait to know who will represent us in Austria. I cross my fingers.

I've just found that young gypsy Catalan-speaking boy who won The Voice in France and he's fantastic and someone with such great charisma to win the contest. France has been trying with diversity in the last year (not always hit the mark though) and this guy would fit in the French Eurovision line.

I mean...

2008: indie/underground song
2009: classy French song
2010: Latin/African move your butt song
2011: Popera
2012: Electropop
2013: Jazz-rock song
2014: Unmentionable silliness

So a Latin/Gypsy song would actually be a logic step from France :lol:


And it would be like having Spain participating twice (or would replace ourselves if we picked some generic and cheesy song that has nothing to do with Spain like "Dancing in the rain"). :rolleyes:

Some fresh news...

According to Nathalie André, who will choose the singer with France 2's team, "We will be critized anyway. We are looking for a voice, a hit"
The commentator will be someone from the channel. So exit Cyril Féraud who commented the last editions and provided the French points in Dusseldorf.

France will return to an internal selection http://www.escunited.com/home/france-will-return-to-an-internal-selection/

http://www.escunited.com/home/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/france2-presente-2008a.jpg (http://www.escunited.com/home/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/france2-presente-2008a.jpg) France 2 are taking a fresh approach to Eurovision. First step – the national final is gone again!
France 2, the new home for Eurovision in French television, has announced that they will not be asking for the public’s decision regarding next year’s French entry and will revert to the internal selection process used between 2008 and 2013.



“We will be criticised whatever we do” joked Nathalie André, head of entertainment at France 2; “We are seeking a voice, a hit”. André also confirmed that Cyril Féraud would not return as the French commentator for Eurovision next year, a position he has held since 2012.
France are prequalified for the final each year as part of the Big 5 and in recent years have had mixed results. France finished last in 2014 when Twin Twin gained 2 points from Europe, becoming the first time France finished last in their history.

That's the problem with people unfortunately. They ignore the good scores your country has gotten recently and latch straight onto the disastrous scores. I think it comes down with many people being sore losers, There was once a time countries like France, UK & Spain dominated the competition and a lot of people will remember that. But now associate their downfall with the debut of the east - so ignore the fact that the entries are so tragic and just blame someone else.

I honestly do believe that entering the Semi-Finals would be very good for France & The UK.
The feeling of qualification is equal to getting a good score for a country doing not so well recently.
Well this is the feeling I get when Belgium qualifies :p

Yes, the past few years in eurovision have really shown that some countries will always do badly no matter what the song they send. You know, like Spain, Austria or the Netherlands.

Purecharts also listed the flops...
Biggest flop has been Alizée who tried to come-back with Dancing with the stars and had very low sales.

Talent shows flops include Sophie-Tith, Olympe and The Voice 2 winner Yoann Fréget who struggle to hold a career... The two first had big success with cover album and flopped with theur own songs.

Amel Bent and Camelia Jordana hit nothing. Jenn Ayache, Emmanuelle Seigner, Elisa Tovati, Carla Bruni, Adrien Gallo, Yelle, Kenza Farrah and Sébastien Tellier had very few sales and zero airplay.

They don't talk about Amandine Bourgeois but her cover album has been a huge flop with only 2500 sales ! :? Half less than the former one... I don't know how she'll come over it...

Et voilà, now it's almost as if you spent your year listening to the best French radio ! :lol:

I really wonder what they have in mind, a big name would be surprising to me but we never know. If they manage to pick a good song and stage it well, that wouldn't be bad for a start.

What type of music will they go for this time? I hope for something serious, overall the contest changed since 2009, it's time to realize that it isn't the black pudding fair it once was. Not being willing to host the contest (as if it was easy for us to win...) does not mean sending shit every year, even a top 10 could change people's opinions about the contest.

Lol they return to internal selection... As if we were given a choice in 2014! :lol:

And I'm sorry but if we send Keen'V, I'll have to leave this country for good, I'm not here that.

But she'd never do it, sadly. Her marcketing is based on appearing the least possible.

Though, if necessary, they can call her producer, Skalpovich, responsible of many successes in RnB in early 2000s, including M. Pokora debut album, and a lot of people lost in the ocean of old-fashion RnB : Leslie, Amine, Willy Denzey... And even Tony Parker album xrofl3 (Yes, he did an album...)

His music was considered as completely old-fashioned, but as fashion is an eternel come-back... :lol:

BTW, the most important piece of news given in the radio interview has been cut off by everyone...

The target of it all is to release the album of the artist in question with a partnership with France 2.
Apparently the artist has already been chosen, as Nathalie André seemed to answer...

I suppose the album is set to be released during the Eurovision time like do the Netherlands for instance... So look for someone releasing an album in May 2015... :rolleyes:
