France’s Eurovision History
France is a powerhouse in Eurovision, debuting in the first Contest in 1956. Their 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”, scoring 136 points.France has seen a rebirth in results following a change in direction in 2016. Amir finished in 6th position for France with “J’ai charché”, followed by 12th, 13th and 16th places respectively.
For 2023, France moved away from a national selection and internally chose La Zarra with her song “Évidemment”. At the close of voting in Liverpool, France finished in 16th place, earning 104 points. Of these, 54 points were given by the juries, whilst the televote allocated an extra 50 points to France.
