Bilal Hassani: King of France!

by | Jan 27, 2019 | Eurovision |

We now know the third entry for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest: France will be represented in Tel Aviv by Bilal Hassani with the song “Roi”!

After two semi-finals, tonight’s final of Destination Eurovision culminated in a fascinating voting. It had been expected to be a head-to-head battle between the semi winners, Bilal Hassani and Seemone, with last week’s televote winner Emmanuel Moire as a potential outsider. Instead, the way the international jurors voted seemed to have skewed things firmly in favour of “Tous les deux” by Seemone – our favourite in the #esc chat with an average score of 7.56 out of 10. Bilal was left way down fifth place – only for him to receive a huge score from the televoters (more than one-third of the votes cast) and take a convincing victory in the end.

As a member of the big five, France is automatically qualified for the grand final in Tel Aviv and will be looking to build on a decent record in recent years thanks to Amir in 2016, Alma in 2017 and Madame Monsieur last year. The latter duo also co-wrote tonight’s winning song, “Roi”, making it two in a row for them!

If you're Felix, Carousel's "That Night" is the kind of song that makes you wistful for "A Century Of Love".

Not the *greatest* compliment in the world as our #Eurovision 2019 line-up check moves on to #Latvia... 🇱🇻

"If Europe is in a pop mood when it counts, then #Switzerland can go very very far this year. Victory not excluded."

Luca Hänni's "She Got Me" gets a big thumbs-up in the latest edition of our #Eurovision 2019 line-up check! 🇨🇭

"Every bit as pedestrian and everyday as the 'seen it a million times before' song title suggests."

It's shrugs all round for Anna Odobescu and "Stay" from #Moldova in the latest instalment of the #Eurovision line-up check!
