FRANCE – On the Eurovision France Facebook page today, Amir and the French broadcaster had a huge surprise for fans. Indeed, in a short video, the singer announced that he had to change a concert date since he was asked to join Marianne James and Stéphane Bern to comment the contest on behalf of France 2 channel.
Alma, the French entrant this year, who is already seen as a serious contender for the trophy, will hence have the best mentor ever with her in Ukraine.
The full list of French commentators is now known: Marianne and Jari (just like in 2016) for semi-finals , Marianne, Stéphane and Amir for the grand final. Let’s just hope the commentators’ boots will be a bit larger than usual!
