LIVE: FRANCE DECIDES 2014
PARIS, FRANCE – BON APRÈS-MIDI PARIS ! GOOD AFERNOON PARIS ! Today the French selection process will eventually come to an end. Since the 3 potential entries were premiered on January 26th, televoters have had the oppotunity to choose the 57th French entry (first open selection in years for France). It has been a very busy period for the 3 artists as well as a harsh promotionnal campaign on social networks.

THE PARTICIPATING ARTISTS & SONGS
Destan – Sans Toi (Without You), a pop ballad from the French copycat of One Direction
Joanna – Ma Liberté (My Freedom), a powerful French ballad that could easily be the soundtrack of a James Bond movie
TwinTwin – Moustache, the catchy fun uptempo entry of the selection, with a strong message
So far, it seems that’s it’s going to be a two-horse race between Joanna and Twin Twin (the band leading the polls on most fan websites). The song will be chosen through a 50/50 combination of jury’s vote and televotes. The exact composition of the jury should be revealed today. Today’s Natasha St Pier’s show, Les Chansons D’abord won’t be a Eurovision special. The programme will be dedicated to famous French-Italian singer Dalida, and the title of the 2014 French Eurovision entry should be revealed at the end of the show.
Tomorrow, March 3rd, a press conference and a live performance of the French entry will be held at “Le Réservoir Club” in Paris. Natasha St Pier and Cyril Féraud, this year’s French commentators for Eurovision final, will attend the event.
