After a public selection last year that saw Twin Twin represent France at Eurovision with a song called "Moustache" (as good as it sounds), France Televisions has decided that they would do a BBC and choose the song and performer themselves thank you, and have chosen Lisa Angell to "defendre les couleurs de la France".

Lisa has released three albums in France, and is an experienced live performer.  Her song "N'oubliez Pas" is a big chanson of a ballad, and is classy - perhaps too classy to grab your attention over three minutes?  Have a look and a listen below:

Here's the view of the Euro Bureau panel:

Asta Bjornsdottir: "Brilliant singer, lovely song. Hope it does well. Still I´m not head over heels......."

Hasse Skoldebjer: "Dull as dishwater, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz 0/10."

Annemieke Kelleter: "Soooo... France, I love this song, not as much as in the beginning but still, she has a wonderful voice, the lyrics are breathtaking and the build-up of the song is beautiful. The only thing that worries me is that it won't stand out enough to do well, and it should do well imo."

Adam and Charlotte Lane: "The song has good intentions, and a little more successful than some of France’s previous entries, but it seems a little overly grandiose to me, a little too worthy, and not successful enough to let it do well, unless the Eurovision crowd get behind the intentions of the song and support it. 2/10."

So mixed opinions here, although not looking like Lisa will end the French drought of Eurovision Success - they've not won since 1977!! What do YOU think though? Leave a comment and let us know! :D
