    Re: FRANCE - France 2011

    France actually had quite a strong NF the last time they staged one in 2007. It could be quite interesting to see what they come up with this time.

    This song (the runner-up) was totally robbed in 2007 (imo) and France selected quite an average (but not too bad) song from what was on offer.

    Agreed. France have probably been my favourite country of the last three years with internal selections. Having set such a high standard, I can only view this change as a negative.

    My only hope is that there are now so many established stars desperate to appear on Eurovision, there's a demand for a national final.

    I hope your analysis is correct, if not I'm afraid it could turn out not too well :/ Oh well let's see.

    Established singers aren't everything. Many new artists can have just as good, if not better songs to put forward for the contest.

    This CAN be true offcourse, but quite often it is not. A total nobody doesn't have that backing of a record company and all the resources that comes with that (good producers, songwriters etc.)

    What I'm most afraid is that it'll be some sort of casting show a la American Idol/X-Factor.. And i'm very much opposed to that concept.

    ^It worked for Germany this year, so why wouldn't it work for France?

    In 2006 it didn't for them, but it was because the song was very dull and boring.
    Let's give them a chance then, but I agree a bit, their internal choices has been super so they should keep with it!

    Well it worked in that case with Germany (thanx to a special singer and an actual good and in the context original enough song). It didn't work for the UK though (yes I know "My Time" scored well but imo that song sucked and 2010 was disaster).

    The last time France had an NF, all of the acts were put forward by record companies and backed by the different channels in the network responsible for ESC, I believe.

    But I guess that's how ESC goes, not all songs can appeal to everyone.

    I think with the success of the last two years, the NF concept might be a great idea.
