Lyrics (Click Spoiler)



Je suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle Mercy
Au milieu de la mer
Entre deux pays, Mercy

C’était un long chemin et Maman l’a pris
Elle m’avait dans la peau, huit mois et demi
Oh oui, huit mois et demi

On a quitté la maison, c’était la guerre
Sûr qu’elle avait raison, y’avait rien à perdre
Oh non, excepté la vie

Je suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle Mercy
On m’a tendu la main
Et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants
Que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans
Je m’appelle Mercy

Et là devant nos yeux y’avait l’ennemie
Une immensité bleue peut-être infinie
Mais oui, on en connaissait le prix

Surgissant d’une vague, un navire ami
A redonné sa chance à notre survie
C’est là, que j’ai poussé mon premier criJe suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle Mercy
On m’a tendu la main
Et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants
Que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans
Je m’appelle MercyJe suis née ce matin
Je m’appelle MercyMercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci

Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci

Given the current trend France 2 has opted for so far, we'll probably be represented by an utter unknown name or a long-forgotten talent show participant. And I don't mind tbh, what matters is whoever goes to Eurovision must have decent vocals and performance skills.

Song-wise, I somehow hope Grassi won't choose the composers of our two last entries, firstly to give any composer a fair chance of "winning the bid" and secondly for the sake of change so that we don't get into the habit of selecting sequels or what we think is the perfect recipe for success only because it worked once or twice. They should move forward and dare.

Peoples here have to understand than more the name is big in France, more the chance to see them refuse to participat in esc is big.

Endemol Shine France have a project for a national finale in 4 parts for next year or years to comes: "mission eurovision" but Edoardo Grassi seem against the idea, because it's already complicate for him to find more than 5 decent act :D

I was thinking about the so-gay duo : Cassandre

what they're doing right now is kinda cheap but they can create their music and with an extra push from a bigger producer to clean the track and make it more memorable that could work very well. It will help them to take out all the tacky gimmicks they always put and give an actual pop track catchy as hell

Not the best one but it gives you an idea, it sounds like a random track we can hear in French Musicals nowadays

Exactly my thoughts and worries. Honestly, I would have liked them to wait for a few more years before organizing something like that; it's only been two years since we started getting good results and I doubt the hype is strong enough for good artists to enter a national competition at the moment. Besides, all our past attempts at making a selection show have sucked monkey balls because it was cheap and there wasn't any worthy song to vote for. We'll probably have 90% of talent show rejects with pretty disposable songs, I wish we could send an actual artist one day.

Let's wait and see, but I'm not thrilled at the moment. A show means live vocals and presentation might be taken into account right from the start, to the detriment of musical merit (given our current music scene, I wouldn't trust French televoters either :lol:).

I have high hopes, I believe first NF after a long break may be very good because there are acts that always wanted to go to ESC but never were asked by broadcaster to go and they will all submit songs in one year :)

24th June 2017, 13:14
Okay for me the problem isn't the French televoters becuase the last time ::fr had a NF(2014) they made the right decision (also for now no one said that it's going to be 100% televoting), what worries me more is, if France Télévisions can find good wiling candidates with good songs for a NF. Because last time they had a NF the songs were the main problem.

2014 can't really serve as a basis for anything though, given how there were only 3 choices anyway (and in a much less advertised show than the new NF will be, I guess). Still, I hope everything will be fine! France 2 is doing a great job with internal selections so I'm hopeful they'll find good entries for the NF, even if the singers are newcomers. I mean, if they don't allow any joke entry in the NF they won't give the option of troll voting to the French public!

"Even though he was raised as a Belgian, he has stated that he did not always feel that he was from Belgium."

I just think considering that this song peaked number 1 in both Belgium and France, that he also could participate for a bigger country like France.

They seem so confident... At least fifteen acts will mean more options for us than just three, like in 2014).

Personally, I think it's far too early to have semis and stuff - one show would have been enough for a start. If they think Eurovision has become big after Amir, they just lie to themselves. Although I like the fact they want people to connect more with the contest by selecting their representative, I fear we'll end up picking someone with very little potential given our poor taste at the moment. :? We've had the bad habit of doing that in the past already.

I'm highly sceptical about our brand new NF anyway, I'll wait for the names of the participants and the alleged "jury" before holding my breath (or not).

The additional difficulty for our acts is that live vocals and presentation will matter to some extent I suppose.

PS: The article says people will vote in the final only... what's the point of organising semis then? :lol: They could do a show with the preselected songs. By the way, it'll be Melfest 2.0 with a European jury in the final... I can smell a bland winning entry from here.

There's no way to worry, as France TV didn't even confirm that this selection process would be organised like the way which has been evoked by Ouest-France. To my mind, I do agree with you on the fact that -first of all- they should host only one show instead of three.
On the other hand, I do reckon that it might be some rumours which are being reported by this local newspaper, don't get anxious about that! :)

By the way, either Wiktoria or Nano or Jon Henrik should've won the whole thing instead of this vaunting artist. The whole show has been broken down by the European jury for sure!

Judging from the national final they seem to be planning, and their past history, one would have thought France won last year and Paris will be hosting in 2018. Their going from 0 to 10 just like that :lol:

They did so well the last two years picking and packaging the entries. All they need to do is make a few adjustments here and there to take it to the next level, nothing major required. It sounds like from the current developments their getting too confident too fast. I mean they had a top 10 and a top 15 (a HUGE improvement after years in the bottom 5) but have still yet to really challenge for a top 5 or win. :oops:

I really think they should have just continued the method of the last two years and get more consistency results wise before getting so ambitious with the national final their supposedly planning. It can backfire and go down the drain in a heartbeat. I mean look at Germany! A win and two top 10s all in a row, and now they can barely escape 0 points! :o

As for a jury I hope its not Bjorkman influenced in any shape or form (too much to ask for I suppose). The last two French entries were so much better the Sweden's they don't need him xsnooty

It's true that France don't shine a lot when it's national selection especially in 2007 and 2014.
But, since we have Edoardo Grassi, the recent French Head of Delegation, i'm confident. He takes really Eurovision seriously and so much the better. The hardest, it's improve in image. It's understable when we did the bottom 5 between 2012-2015.

I'm sure he takes great songs and not "troll" songs. Plus, european juries can vote, it avoid to send a bad song

For his song, he can't go further. Sounds like a love song from 2000's like his Tribal King time. Even if media talked a lot about Jeremy Montana, Nony and Volcavision. I prefer none of 3. Maybe a song like "Puis danse" by Eugenie could work

Apparently, the jury who will get to select the entries in the semis is composed of six people:
-Amir (our 2016 representative)
-Isabelle Boulay (famous French-Canadian singer)
-Christophe Willem (a French singer who won a talent show more than a decade ago and managed to build an interesting career afterwards)
-Nicola Cagliore (head of delegation from Italy)
-Olga Salamakha (head of delegation from Belarus)
-Christer Björkman (no presentation needed).

I guess having Amir, Isabelle and Christophe is a good thing because they have different artistic profiles and most likely have different musical tastes.

It is said famous songwriters like Zazie or Maitre Gims have submitted songs. Wait and see.

I was wondering why the last winner of the voice (Lisandro Cuxi) would participate in preselection for France while he has some succes here an he is young but actually I understood why: he is portugese, born in Lisboa and came to France when he was 9 years old.

So it is quite a logical choice to participate. I hope his song is good.

And Lisandro Cuxi, the most recent winner. He succeeded Amir as the winner of the NRJ Music Award for Francophone Breakthrough of the Year

I wish it remained only rumours. These names come from a list published on Twitter, even though nothing has been confirmed so far apart from Malo.

I'm afraid of something : having a bunch of good songs but nothing outstanding nor winning material. 85% of these snippets seems to be radio friendly tunes like.. yeah I like it, it's nice but that's it. I remember when I was listening to the melfest's snippets saying "OMG winning potential" "Solid act" althought I didn't see anything of the act itself (with a lot of "very bad song" on the other hand). Maybe the fact that very good songs and very bad songs in the melfest makes the good ones shine brighter, while all the goods songs in Destination Eurovision makes them compete for the same shining spot ? Just wondering.

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, this sounds promising still a little bit light. So I'm very curious to see how this turns out live.

The point is that we're yet to see every song from this national final. Moreover, I do think that making such a comparison between the MF and Destination Eurovision is pointless. I mean, a lot of songs in the MF are being composed in order to appeal to casual viewers of the Eurovision.

Hence the featured entries so far are all great. The purpose of this selection process is to pick out the best entries among the 1500 submitted ones. It'll be very hard to make a choice, even though Malo's song is beyond horrendous.

Every opinion matters ;-) I made a comparison with the NF that gave us 2 winners in less than 5years (which seems relevant to me) and another NF. I don't see the problem to have songs composed in order to appeal the casual viewers of Eurovision, or for short : a song composed to win. It's still a contest, even Portugal 2017 came from a contest before ESC, this was not sent for the pure sake of music.

Amar Pelos Dois was sent for the sake of music as this was stated by Salvador himself. ;)
Nonetheless, I'm not criticising anyone but MF isn't obviously the beacon of awesomeness when it comes to their entries. Don't forget that most of Swedish entries are always supported by some countries, whatever country it is. In contrast to France, Sweden is always ensured to make it to the top 10 every year.

I hope this NF will finally give us a representative with steady vocals and better stage presence than Amir and Alma.

I like how France seems to really be making an effort these past few years. From the songs presented so far, I think June The Girl's one interests me most, strangely enough. I like how bold the synths are in the chorus. I think that's a pop song I could get behind. I might enjoy Pheno Men too. They're groovy. With the others i'll need to hear more ("Ciao" leaves me with conflicting feelings), but this selection already feels better than the past two UK national finals combined.

I haven't listened to the snippets yet (probably won't until the shows start), but I don't see what kind of televoting advantage he could possibly have... He won The Voice but his debut album flopped hard, so... If the song is along the lines of his released material, I doubt he'll be more of a threat than anyone else.

Anyway, we also have juries in to even things out; 100% televoting is imo too frightening for now, we have yet to see how people react to the selection format.

I must admit I was actually pretty worried when France was planning a selection, since over ten years ago, it was pretty dreadful...but it seems they are doing most things right this time. The presentation of the artists are made great and it feels very well thought. Listening to most snippets so far and it does sound extremly promising. It feels that all songs reflect the modern french society in all it's colours, which makes the NF even more interesting. If the songs work in Eurovision, well that depends on the performance I guess. I will for sure try to watch this NF this month, feeling that this might be a nice new addition to the typical NF-season. :mrgreen:

I haven't fallen in love with any of the songs yet, although all of them seem ok. I guess the snippets are too short to judge.

But Nassi's seems the most interesting choice. I knew his music before and he's great. Loukas seems interesting too. We'll confirm when we get to listen to the whole songs :)

Lisandro Cuxi's song sounds way too americanized, a mix between Bruno Mars and The Weeknd. Jury would love this at Eurovision but the public not so much, predicting a similar result like Amir.

Nonetheless, France has come up with a strong selection and they can be proud of that.

France and the world lost one of the great ESC winners today when France Gall went to show the angels how its done.Bang in the middle of the 1960s she showed how to win an ESC by connecting through the camera with the audience at home,not just through the song.Poupée de cire, poupée de son by France Gall was and always will be a seminal moment in ESC history.

Listening to most of the songs so far this year,maybe the writers can take a listen to this master class in how you position a bridge in a song,and for the artists how you lift the melody with emotional perfection as you come out of said bridge.Superb.

We'll have to wait for the full version and the live performance to be sure of its potential but personnaly, already based on the snippet, this would easily be my favourite French entry of the century. It's a modern pop-electro track with many influences sound in in it and I like her voice. Also, I find the couple very charismatic and French (if that makes sense) which a huge plus.

Time to post my faves based on the snippets available.
So in alphabetical order:

Emmy Liyana - "OK ou KO"
Lisandro Cuxi - "Eva"
Louka - "Mamma Mia"
Lucie - "My World"
Madame Monsieur - "Mercy"
Malo' - "Ciao"
Masoe - "Paradise"
Nassi - "Rêve de gamin"
Noée - "L'un près de l'autre"
Sarah Caillibot - "Tu me manques"
Sweem - "Là-haut"

Yes... 11 songs xheat so far Nassi is probably my top favorite but I'll wait for the full versions ;)
There's just one song that I don't like and it's considered one of the favorites so that's kinda bothering me... it's June the Girl, so please France

Honestly, the most intriguing snippet for me belongs to Max Cinnamon. I think it has the most unique instrumentation of all the songs and I'm especially keen for the full version.

8th January 2018, 18:10
It is really hard to judge the small clips, but there are many good songs according to them, at least noone is that bad. The ones that stand out a little more from the rest are for me these (in no particular order):

"Ciao" Malo
"Same" June The Girl
"Mamma Mia" Louka
"Mercy" Madame Monsieur
"OK Ou KO" Emmy Lyiana
"L'Un Près De L'Autre" Noèe
"Tu Me Manques" Sarah Caillibot
"Paradise" Masoe
"Rêve De Gamin" Nassi
"Eva" Lisandro Cuxi

There is no chance they change the number of songs in the final from 8 to 10? :oops: No, but I am really looking forward to DE now! :D

Un mec à mis un message avec une alerte spoil j'ai pas fait de remarque, j'ai pas besoin d'excuse, je dis ce que je pense et oui j'aime pas que les gens ne respectent pas les autres en s'amusant à leak. J'en ai rien à faire que ça te plaise pas que je "parle" pour les autres, c'est pas ce que je veux, je dis juste que c'est pas le sujet pour leak et que si on souhaite donner des info, le minimum c'est de mettre une balise ou une alerte spoil comme celui qui a eu l'intelligence de le faire avant. en revanche toi tu prend la défense de ce mec ? parle pas à sa place je t'ai pas demandé quoi que ce soit, c'est une remarque je lui fait et t'as pas besoin de jouer à l'avocat..

popavapeur
9th January 2018, 02:26
je trouve ça gonflé qu'un type vienne s'inscrire juste pour casser les couilles, pas de bonjour, pas de présentation mais juste pour faire le français : le gros relou de base qui est la raison pour laquelle les fans français qui parlent une autre langue ne vont plus sur les forums francophones. C'est mieux avec une balise spoil c'est vrai, mais rien n'oblige les gens à le faire ici et on est sur un forum où les leaks sont souvent autorisés, généralement, si je viens ici c'est justement pour lire les spoils en grand en large... comme assez souvent en fait. Y en a marre des mecs qui viennent pourrir des forums quand on est là pour ça : parler de spoil, de leaks, de nos attentes, de tout lié au concours.

tl:dr for non french speakers : I'm just shredding him to pieces cause he's complaining/making a rant with his first messages to spit on someone that made a spoiler. Excuse is : "I don't care about spoilers but I'm talking for anyone else", I strongly advice to speak for himself and himself only and not worry about others, we can all take responsability of what we're reading and where we're going. I agree with him with the fact that a "spoiler" quote is better but there's not obligation to do it and I'm pointing out the fact that I like this forum for the fact that this is the place I'm coming first to read spoilers/reactions as they're often easy to find and not hidden. So my last sentence is basically saying that I'm fed up with people that act like a rotten apple in the tree, creating bad vibes when we're all here for this : talking about ESC, leaks, spoils, and what we're expecting from the contest.

(and also I'm saying that French "bilinguasl" are running from french forums cause it's often worse than a spanish meltdown : always ranting, complaining, trolling)

J'arrête ici pour cette histoire de spoil et continue le sujet normalement / Stopping here with that spoiler issue and bring back the thread to "normal"

making a spoiler thing, so spoilers of yesterday evening.


So the 4 acts of yesterday are : Lisandro, Emmy Liyana, Malo and Loukas

IJ seemed to like Emmy Liyana (Sweden's 12) and Lisandro was a strong contender full package : Dancing, Singing, charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent and the song was allegedly the strongest of the bunch and got First place easily, followed by Emmy. There's a little gap after and Malo came 3rd while Loukas barely made top 4 saved by a french jury and his 10p, Pheno Men are dead last with a nul point. Masoe was not very well liked too with a few points. Amir and Isabelle did their job as a judge but Christophe didn't hold back and said openly what were the flaws of the artist/song (he said during the show : I don't want to be the one but I'm gonna be the one). His comments were actually useful and true so he's not playing a villain for the sake of being a villain.

Every act sang 2songs, a cover and the song for ESC, the show was quite long and voting was exciting and well made. Overall the show and the songs were high quality and has a good entertaining value, post-prod and editing are welcome to cut all the useless parts that felt the show a little bit boring/slow/long

If that isn't the case, I'd be shocked to learn France 2 has taken such precautions tbh. Would they be willing to record fake results just for the sake of a limited audience?

By the way, I think pre-recording the semis - even if only juries vote - is nonsensical if the final is meant to be broadcast live. They might as well air everything live: they have the means to do it and it would prevent such inconveniences from happening.

Indeed. This is the very first time that they air it on FTV, thus it doesn't matter whether there are some issues in regards to this brand new national final. I'm pretty sure they'll fix it next year?

For sure they will. As you say, it doesn't overshadow the efforts they've put in this NF: for a first time, it seems very promising and professional. Thank God the years of France 3 are over. :)

LOL. When you're comparing "Destination Eurovision" to "Les chansons d'abord" or whatsoever, it only proves us that FTV did the right choice to deal with the ESC once again instead of FR3... :?

The former selections were beyond horrendous, it all started from 2004 onwards tbh.
