by Pete Lewis 105 views0

Amir Haddad has been internally selected to represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.

After weeks of speculation over who France 2, the French broadcaster, would select to represent the country in Stockholm they have finally revealed their choice.

An announcement was due in March, however, it looks as though the country were wise to the hints given by the broadcaster about the act.

Amir will sing J’ai cherché at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Amir rose to fame in France after competing in the 2014 edition of The Voice of France, where he reached the final.

A late starter with his music career at 29, he’d spent most of his previous working life as a dental surgeon.

As a member of the big 5, France is granted automatic access to the grand final. He’ll perform J’ai cherché on 14 May.

Last year, Lisa Angell was internally selected to represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. Her song N’oubliez pas only picked up four points in the grand final, finishing 25th.

What do you think of France’s choice for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016?
