Paris je t’aime: France’s Alma shoots Eurovision 2017 postcard in French capital

19

This weekend she’ll perform in Madrid at the Eurovision Pre-Party Spain on April 15. But before she boards the plane to Spain, France‘s Eurovision 2017 act Alma took time out to hit the French capital Paris to shoot her postcard – the short clip that introduces each act before they perform on stage. 

On an idyllic rooftop overlooking Paris’s iconic Eiffel Tower, the French starlet posed for a cute snap, which France 2’s Eurovision France Twitter page shared earlier today, teasing that the postcard shoot was underway.

Alma herself was cagier than the official France Eurovision page, sharing a thoughtful Instagram of herself and the Eiffel tower:

Fans of Alma will be aware that Paris and the Eiffel Tower played a big part in the music video for “Requiem”.

And it also features on the wiwibloggs “Embrasse-moi” t-shirt, which Alma officially approved prior to its release.

The clip largely featured the French singer working quirky dance moves in the Parisian streets, while couples dance on buildings, but also featured multiple shots of the Parisian skyline.

Alma’s Road to Eurovision

As mentioned Alma is slated to appear in Madrid this weekend at the Eurovision Pre-Party Spain and from there she’ll start her journey to Kyiv in earnest.

“Requiem” has been on a significant tour of Europe, taking in five countries while also being performed domestically in France at the Moulin Rogue as part of the Sidaction telethon raising funds in support of HIV/AIDS charities.

Alma follows in the footsteps of last year’s France Eurovision act Amir. This year the showman will be back in action at Eurovision, acting as the French commentator.

Last year his song “J’ai Cherché” took France back to the top 10, ranking sixth overall once televoting and jury scores were combined.

Do you think Alma can improve on France’s result last year? Are you excited to see this year’s postcards? Let us know in the comments below!
