    FRANCE 2016 - Amir - J'ai cherché





    Amir - J'ai cherché



    Amir Haddad (Hebrew: עמיר חדד‎), or simply Amir, (born Laurent Amir Khlifa Khedider Haddad in 1984 in 12th arrondissement of Paris and grew up in Sarcelles (Val-d'Oise), France) is an Israeli-French singer and songwriter of Tunisian and Moroccan-Spanish Jewish parents. He took part in 2006 in the Israeli music competition Kokhav Nolad, released his album Vayehi in 2011 and was a finalist in French competition The Voice: la plus belle voix as part of Team Jenifer finishing third in the competition. He will represent France in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 with the song "J'ai cherché".

    In 2016 he was selected by French public broadcaster France 2 to represent France in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden. Amir's song was chosen internally by France 2 by a committee headed by France 2 entertainment director Nathalie André and the newly appointed French Head of Delegation for the Eurovision Song Contest Edoardo Grassi after having received 280 submissions.

    The song titled "J'ai cherché" is co-written by Amir himself, Nazim Khaled and Johan Errami and contains lyrics in a bilingual mix of French and English. France 2 had originally planned to reveal the entry on 12 March 2016, however, information that Amir would represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 was leaked on 25 February 2016 during the D8TV talk show programme Touche pas à mon poste!, hosted by Cyril Hanouna. "J'ai cherché" was edited and remixed by Skydancers and Nazim Khaled at the request of the French broadcaster since the song exceeded three minutes in its original version, which had already been released as the first single from Amir's forthcoming album. The entry was formally presented to the public on 12 March 2016 during the France 2 programme The DiCaire Show, hosted by Véronic DiCaire.

    In recent news, Amir was nominated for a 2017 NRJ Music Award in the Francophone Duo/Group of the Year category for his collaboration on "No Vacancy" with OneRepublic. And just a couple of days ago, he was also nominated for Best French Act at the 2017 MTV EMAs

    This new will make @esc87fan happy. Because Amir hold his title as Francophone song of the year in NRJ Music Awards with "On Dirait".
    By contrast, i hope Maitre Gims don't watch NMA on TV (he losts last year with Sapés comme jamais... against "J'ai cherché")

    Yesterday I was sitting in a bar with my friends and this song was playing over and over for 2 consecutive hours.

    Now I realized it has 78 million views on youtube.

    It's good to see a Eurovision song do so well even after 2 years, and it didn't even come in top 5.

    8 pts - a great comeback for France. Finally, they decided to submit contemporary songs to Eurovision whilst staying true to their roots. Catchy (just the "youuus" is a bit off-putting, I suppose)

    I think a "Mazel Tov" is in order, Amir and his wife Lital are now the proud parents of a baby boy named Mikhaël!
