France: Slimane to Eurovision 2024

France's broadcaster has just announced the internal selection of Slimane for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024

French broadcaster France 2 has just revealed their artist for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024. La Zarra's successor in Eurovision is Slimane.

The song that Slimane will sing on the Eurovision stage in May is titled "Mon amour" and was released on the France 2 show 20h on Wednesday evening.

France 2024: Slimane – "Mon amour"

Slimane says:

– It's hard not to look in the rear-view mirror now that I know I'll be representing my country at Eurovision! It's completely crazy when I think about it.

– My first concerts in the bars of Pigalle, it seems like yesterday. My father taking me to my first casting. And then The Voice. My encounter with the public. The wonderful public that gave me the strength and desire to take on one of the greatest challenges of my career. It's an immense source of pride. A real responsibility, too.

– In May, I'll be singing in front of almost 200 million people. I'll be singing for my parents. For my daughter. For France. And for you, you for whom I wrote this song…

Alexandra Redde-Amiel, Director of Entertainment and Games at France Télévisions and head of the French Eurovision delegation says:

– Slimane is a great artist, but he's much more than that: he's a unifying personality who carries us along and draws us into his world! When society is prey to the passions and disorders of the world, Slimane is the artist who allows us to escape and soothe ourselves. Supported by his fans, he's our best chance of seducing Europeans with his talent and charisma, and putting the odds in our favor.

– This choice also demonstrates France Télévisions' ambition for Eurovision, a program that attracts a larger audience in France every year.
