France – As our friends at Eurovision au Quotidien report, Bruno Berbes, the head of the French delegation has confirmed the Grande Nation’s participation at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 to be held in Baku, Azerbaijan. Unfortunately thoughts on a possible national final, which was reported to be a done deal right before this year’s Eurovision, seem to have been dismissed. Berbes said that France will one again select their representative internally.
The last time France held a national final was in 2007 when the Fatals Picards won. Since then only Patricia Kaas has managed to bring the once glorious Eurovision nation back into the Top 10. Last year Amaury Vassili was a favourite to win but only came 15th in the final with his ballad “Sognu“
