France’s Eurovision journey
France is a powerhouse in Eurovision, debuting at the first contest in 1956. Its first entries finished in second place, but no scores were ever published. Since then, France has gone on to win the contest five times. The most recent win came in 1977, with Marie Myriam’s “L’enfant et l’oiseau,” which scored 136 points.
Recent years have seen France slump in the results, but a change in direction in 2016 boosted the nation’s performance. Amir finished in sixth position for France that year with “J’ai charché,” and France placed 12th, 13th, and 16th in the following years respectively. In 2021, Barbara Pravi was able to wow audiences across Europe and Australia with her song “Voilà.” At the close of voting, France finished in second place, earning a mammoth 499 points.
