If you traced the paths of Timbaland and Ricky Martin, their paths would cross at Matt Pokora. Over the past decade the 29-year-old singer from Strasbourg has collaborated with these global stars and many more, helping cement his place as one of the biggest pop artists in France. Matt is often a favourite in Eurovision fan polls conducted in France. But would he make a good representative at Eurovision 2015?

Matt Pokora at Eurovision?

As every eurofan knows, France has a history of fielding its biggest stars for Eurovision. From Patricia Kaas to Anggun Cipta, Paris isn’t afraid to send in the big guns! Given that France 2 is taking over the Eurovision broadcast from France 3 this year, it makes since that they would want to go big following Twin Twin’s last-place finish in 2014.

The thought of Matt Pokora doesn’t seem like a total daydream. He’ll release his sixth solo album R.E.D. in February, and it could very well contain his Eurovision 2015 song. At the same time, he has already revealed his schedule for 2015 and there is a pretty big gap in his touring schedule which coincides with the Eurovision rehearsals and grand final! (He does have concerts planned in Rouen and Orleans on May 20 and 21, but given how jetset he is, we’re sure he could make it work).

Would you be keen on Matt? Is this realistic? Of would you rather get behind the likes of Shy’m, Zaz and Tal?

“As every eurofan knows, France has a history of fielding its biggest stars for Eurovision”… This is completely untrue. In the last 2 decades, France only sent 1 established artist and that’s Patricia Kaas. Angunn, Amandine Bourgeois, Jonatan Cerrada, Amaury Vassili, etc. are somewhat known but enjoy a very limited success (not to say none).

And given the poor placing of the French entries in the last 40 years, I doubt that any successful artist will dare to put their reputation at risk to go to Eurovision.

Matt Pokora … The french metaphor for someone who has been able to rise to fame due to good looks and dancing abilities … and whose musical repertoire does not require an exceptional voice … he does not have one and apparently that does not even matter considering the profound wish from many here to see him represent France in Eurovision. Vocally it would be embarrassing to watch and listen .. but I do know what would be appealing to look at physically speaking. Thank god that “looking at and being appealing” perspective only has 50% of the voting …… Read more »

If he does, it would be such a great idea.
Matt is a good singer, dances very well and is good looking.
Every people who know him tell that he is very kind to his fans and he is a very positive person.
There are only two problems:
– His current album is not as successful as usual
– He will sing in French, and not in English

France sending stars????? I’m afraid Kaas and Anggun were two exceptions! Matt Pokora, Indila, Mylène Farmer, David Guetta or Daft Punk will never be on Eurovision stage. Time will tell. But if I’m wrong I get you an apfel strudel in Vienna 😉

that would be great but he wouldn’t do it. Eurovision used to be popular during the years of Patricia and Amaury.
