France and Israel select – and news about SongHunt 2021!

by | Jan 31, 2021 | Eurovision, Featured

“Voilà” by Barbara Pravi won last night’s French national final, Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez!, and will represent the Big Five country in the grand final of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.

As well as the honour of being the favourite in our chatroom, Pravi won the expert jury vote and the public vote in France to seal a comfortable victory in the actual competition. Followers of Junior Eurovision will be familiar with Pravi’s work, even if they didn’t realise it before – she co-composed the last two French JESC entries, including the reigning champion “J’imagine” by Valentina.

Earlier in the week, Eden Alene became the first of several re-selected 2020 performers to have her own single-artist national final as Israel chose its entry. Three entries were in the running, and “Set Me Free” came out on top in what turned out to be a dominant public vote victory. Israel will perform in the second half of the first semi-final in Rotterdam (or the virtual equivalent thereof).

The non-winning songs from the French and Israeli finals, together with all of the other losing national finalists so far, will get their chance for revenge when we launch SongHunt 2021 in the second half of February!

Using a shorter format to reflect the scaled-back national final season this year, SongHunt is our annual competition to find the song that our chatters and website readers think was the most “robbed” and that really should have made it through to ESC proper. So stay tuned for that!

We complete our reviews of the semi 1 songs with the current bookmakers' favourite to win #Eurovision 2021: Malta! 🇲🇹

The Maltese PR machine goes into overdrive at this time of year - so what can it achieve with a genuinely marketable package like this?

With a month left until #Eurovision, that seems like a good time to look at what the betting markets are doing!

Who's qualifying for the final, who's going top 10 - and, of course, who'll win the whole thing? The gamblers know - or they think they do...
