The holidays only ended today. But producers at Destination Eurovision have barely had a break as they’ve kept the artist reveals coming thick and fast.

And today it was time to announce that Noée will contest France’s Eurovision 2018 national selection with “L’un près de l’autre”.

Judging from her Facebook announcement, she’s very excited.

“It’s official: 2018 starts in beauty!” she wrote on her Facebook page. “I can finally tell you with great happiness about my participation in the Eurovision 2018 show! #Destinationeurovision.”

“We worked very hard with my super team Jules JaconelliBarbara Barbara and Tomislav Matosin, thank you thank you thank you for living this crazy experience at my side.”

“I took the time to be able to come back with a project that I care about, and I like it more than ever.”

“I can’t wait to be able to live this with all of you and especially to make you discover this song that I hold to my heart and which marks the beginning of a year that will be full of beautiful projects.”

Her song nods to classic French chanson, but with a cinematic edge. It would have been right at home on the sound track to Amélie.

In her video snippet the blonde bombshell speaks of the great variety of music in France, and her love of pop and folk. She can also be seen running her fingers through leaves and admiring greenery, which dovetails nicely with a video found on her Facebook page.

In that video she performs an unnamed song (in acoustic) in the vineyards of Château de Pommard, suggesting once more that she is a child of nature. Her voice is pure and delicate and delivered with love and laughter. We approve.

DESTINATION EUROVISION – KNOWN COMPETITORS

The remaining competing songs will be revealed over the coming days, in the build-up to the first semi-final. The first semi airs on 13 January. Nine songs will compete in each of the two semi-finals, and four songs from each semi will go to the grand final.

You can follow the official Eurovision France 2 Facebook page for the latest updates.

She brought realness to this contest mess of fast food and fireworks. I want next competitor is Alizee or Avril Lavigne

I am in love with this song. Wow, Mysterious, but with typically French elements in it. It’s like something you would here in a fantasy game/movie or in the Efteling themepark, hahaha.

I would love for France to get a top 5 this year. They have been trying so hard and they deserve it. The only song in recent years I disliked of France was 2013. They should have been top 10-5 with 2010,2011,2015 and obviously the last two years. Also remember when Echo was the first song announced for 2012 and loving that. Too bad she butchered that live though.

I like that. It has that retro flavour, just like Requiem.

DESTINATION EUROVISION: the semi-finals will be recorded on monday 8th and tuesday 9th of january in Paris, in a tv studio that is 2090 square meters, more spacious than the “the voice la plus belle voix” ‘s studio, almost double, so we can wait something spectacular!!!! And maybe the final in a big arena as for the melfest, we can dream, who knows 😉

This will be in the exact same studio as The Voice live shows. And it is the biggest TV studio in Europe. We can see how it looks during shows here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I5qDjLfcIA

They are spoiling us! This is Melfest quality – no dud entries! And all with a definite French flavour, in one way or another. This is how you do a national final!

Not very impressed by this entry. However, it’s a beautiful song and the live performance will elevate this.

I have a feeling that the best is yet to come, some leaked names are very interesting and not revealed yet. I love the songs but I kinda hope that they have a BIG thing in store, something that instantly says “ESC winner potential”. Let’s see…

This keeps getting better and better! A little worried that if it’s too much like an old-fashioned chanson it’ll suffer the same fate as France’s 2015 entry, but her voice is lovely and the song sounds terrific. Gonna be tough choosing the best of this strong batch!

First meh entry for me. Lovely voice, and I will wait to hear the full song before I make a judgement.
