Today at 17:00 CET, during Les chansons d’abord Spéciale Eurovision, France 3 will announce whether Destan, Joanna or Twin Twin will sing at Eurovision 2014. You can watch it live on the France 3 web site the Film On web site. If we were at Eurovision, a hot female presenter would now say something like this: “Soyez présent dimanche 2 mars devant les chansons d’abord sur France 3 à 17h00 pour connaître le grand gagnant qui représentera la France à l’Eurovision le 10 mai à Copenhague!”

Poll Results: Twin Twin the Favourite

Over the past month we’ve been asking our readers to vote for who they want to see sing for France. The results are in, and they are decisive.

1. Twin Twin with “Moustache” 380 votes, 51.42%

2. Joanna with “Ma Liberté” 241 votes, 32.61%

3. Destan with “Sans toi” 118 votes, 15.97%

Our Jury’s Picks

While all y’all were voting, the Wiwi Jury—our in-house panel of musical unprofessionals—was busy listening to these songs on loop and ranking our favourites. We ranked the songs in the same order as our readers.

1. Twin Twin with “Moustache” (6.78)

Good: “Twin Twin are the only French act likely to have any lasting impact in Copenhagen.”

Bad: “I find myself thinking back and making comparisons to Les Fatals Picards, and we all remember how that turned out.”

2. Joanna with “Ma Liberté” (6.56)

Good: “The ballad is very peaceful yet powerful, and Joanna nails the notes like it’s child’s play.”

Bad: “I like the chorus, but rest of the song makes me sleepy.”

3. Destan with “Sans Toi” (3.10)

Good: “Singing in Franglais widens the voting bloc. This is definitely a contender.”

Bad: “‘Sans Toi’ is the least entertaining song of the three on offer here. It lacks the drama of Joanna and the craziness of Twin Twin. It’s a textbook boyband song and I am so not entertained.”

Wonderful … 2014 is proven to be the one of the worst set of songs since 2008 … we’re back to the televoting days where music was complete rubbish and nobody cared about it … everybody just wants another crappy reason to have fun and maybe drink another glass … and Moustache is now joining that party. And so far I only have 3 favourites songs … this is just great. Eurovision at its best in being the worst.

Twin Twin is obvious plagiat of Stromae’s song, just listen…

In France Johanna has won. My uncle works on France 3 and he is in the team for ESC.

Are you all mad?
Didn’t you here them performing it live?
If France wants any votes at all then they need to Joanna.
Think about it comedy songs like lasha tumbai were very good but this is more like France circa 2007 very bad.
If it does capture the televoters I doubt the juries will reward the bad singing.
Heres how I think Frances voting has gone

TwinTwin 1st
Joanna 2nd
Destan 3rd

The Best one out of the 3 songs!
Destans song is plain boring and Joanna’s song is just alright, but this, this is great!

Johanna and Destan are just really boring. Realistically, Twin Twin’s humour and catchy song give them the best chance of doing well in the Final.

I love “Moustache” so much. If it gets selected (and it really really should!) I hope there’ll be a video made for it because Twin Twin make such cool videos.

Since 2009, I have all the French songs on my iPod. This year it was Twin Twin’s turn. They better win.
