FRANCE – The first online press conference for the accredited media representatives took place today. The French delegation held an afternoon soiré with media from all over the world interacting.
Barbara Pravi performed her song, the commentator was excited with the French entry and he made it clear: France wants to win this year.
Head of Delegation Alexandra Redde-Amiel, emphasized that the French public is highly interested in Eurovision this year, especially now that France is the second favourite to win in the betting odds.
They want to showcase the beauty and the magnificent shows the big cities such as Paris, Marseille, Lyon etc., can show to the world.
But Barbara has a personal favourite city: Paris. This is where it should take place if she wins, she said. It’s the only fair thing to do after 45 years.
“Let’s make France great again in Eurovision” was his words between joke and seriousness paraphrasing Donald Trump’s election motto.
After answering few questions, there was a short documentary for Barbara performing her song, fitting her Eurovision outfit and receiving video messages such as that of the 2020 Junior Eurovision winner, Valentina.
Answering media and fan questions, Barbara spoke about Monmarte while HOD revealed that there will be a pre-show before the Grand Final, showcasing the preparations of the French delegation and singer ahead of the live show.
Barbara also likes the 2017 Portuguese winner entry by Salvador Sobral (which France voted anyway with 12 points back then), a song that talks about the love of a couple.
It was also revealed that Junior Eurovision 2019 entrant Carla, will be the French spokesperson for Eurovision 2021.
