FRANCE – French national broadcaster revealed all the songs for Destination Eurovision, the show through which the country will decide its participation for Israel. In the two semi finals, four acts by the public vote will proceed to the final where an International jury will have a 50% say in the final decision. You can listen to the songs and vote for your five favourites in our poll below.
Destination Eurovision 2019 is the national final organised by France 2 to select France’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The competition will consist of three live shows, aired in January 2019 on France 2, which will be hosted by French-Canadian singer Garou.
The format of the competition will consist of three live shows: two semi-finals, and a final. The two semi-finals will feature nine entries each, from which four are selected to advance to the final from each show.
Results in the semi-finals will be determined by public televoting (50%) and a five-members international jury panel (50%). Results in the final will be determined by public televoting (50%) and a ten-members international jury panel (50%). An international jury member is set to vote in only one of the three shows. Therefore, twenty juries will be involved in the voting this year.
Like the previous edition, the show will feature a three-members Francophone jury panel to provide feedback. They will no longer have a say in the results of the contest. The Francophone jury panel will consist of :
Christophe Willem – Singer, returning as a judge for the second consecutive year
