FRANCE – Et voilà! After a ‘tres magnifique’ night of music in France, the country has voted for the song that will represent them at the Eurovision Song Contest in May. Alvan & Ahez are heading to Turin with ‘Fulenn’.
The winner was selected over 2 rounds of voting. In the first round, the top 5 songs were determined by public televoting and then advanced to the second round, the ‘superfinal’. A 10-member jury panel then selected a wildcard entry from the remaining 7 entries, to proceed to this superfinal. The 6 songs in the superfinal were then voted on by both the public and the jury, with a 50% weighting applied to each.

Performing Fulenn, we have Alvan (a multi-instrumentalist musician specialising in electro) and Ahez (a trio comprised of Marine, Sterenn D. and Sterenn L., 3 Breton singers of traditional heritage, who perform contemporary stories mixed with the myths of their region). The song tackles the Breton legend of a young woman who emancipates herself from societal norms by dancing at night bathed in the light from a bonfire.
- Marius – Les chansons d’amour
- Alvan & Ahez – Fulenn
