Barbara Pravi will represent France at Eurovision with ‘Voilà’



France has decided! Barbara Pravi has won ‘Eurovision: c’est vous qui décidez’ and will be singing ‘Voilà’ at the Eurovision Song Contest this May. The song won in a landslide victory, winning both the televote and the jury vote to beat second-place finisher Juliette Moraine by a whopping 68 points.


‘Voilà’ was also the Aussievision team’s winner of the selection! Read more about it here.


To open the show, all twelve competing artists in the national selection joined forces with juror and guest performer Duncan Laurence to sing his Eurovision-winning song ‘Arcade’. The show also featured guest performances from jury president Amir and 2020 French Eurovision artist Tom Leeb.


France’s 2020 Junior Eurovision artist Valentina performed her winning song ‘J’imagine’, then joined the other ‘Eurovision: c’est vous qui décidez’ artists for a rendition of Celine Dion’s Eurovision success ‘Ne partez pas sans moi’


The top 7 songs from the first round (100% televote) automatically qualified to the second round of voting, and the 10-member jury chose a wildcard from the remaining 5 entries to complete the superfinal. In the superfinal, the final result was determined by 50% public vote and 50% jury vote.


The seven songs that qualified through the televote were:

  • ‘Tutti’ - Casanova

  • ‘Pourvu qu’on m’aime’ - Juliette Moraine

  • ‘On a mangé le soleil’ - Céphaz

  • ‘Peux-tu me dire ?’ - 21 juin le duo

  • ‘Maeva’ - Amui

  • ‘Voilà’ - Barbara Pravi

  • ‘Amour fou’ - Pony X

LMK received the jury ticket with her song ‘Magique’, leaving Andriamad’s song ‘Alléluia’, ‘Bah non’ by Philippine, Terence James’ song ‘Je t’emmènerai danser’ and Ali’s ‘Paris me dit (Yalla ya helo !)’ eliminated from the competition.


After the second round of voting, the top 8 acts received the following scores:
