Say bonjour to Louisy! Eurofans all across France (and Europe!) can’t take it any longer as the wait for our Eurovision 2016 reveal drags on and on. Yesterday, France 2, the French national broadcaster, announced that this year’s entry will be revealed on March 12th during the premiere of the DiCaire Show, a brand new variety show hosted by Canadian signer and imitator, Véronic DiCaire. Thank goodness — the uncertainty was killing us.
After Lisa Angell’s poor ranking in Vienna despite an outsanding performance, France 2 see things differently for the 61st Eurovision Song Contest — giving us hope they will go young, modern and fresh. Since early February, France 2 has been teasing us by publishing hints on its Eurovision-related social media. According to some fans, they all lead to one star: Louisy Joseph!

The last hint published this Friday gives several clues. First, we can read the message “At the beginning, there was a band” and a drawing that represents five balloons, including a heart-shaped one. The balloons all seem to fly in several directions. Louisy Joseph began her career in the girl band L5, which was very popular in the early 2000s.
Who are you, Louisy Joseph?
Born in 1974, Lydy Louisy-Joseph aka Louisy Joseph is famous for her participation in the girlsband L5. She began a solo career in 2008 with her first album La saison des amours including the hit single “Assis par terre”. She also took part in the fifth season of Danse avec les stars.
Do you think Louisy Joseph will be France representative for this year or are you wondering about someone else?
