The latest episode of the French television series La fête de la chanson française featured three French Eurovision stars. Amaury Vassili (2011) and Anggun (2012) joined Lisa Angell as part of the star-studded line-up of FCF.
The show is a celebration of 100 years of French chanson, with contemporary artists performing beloved French songs and modern classics.
Anggun duetted with pop tenor Vincent Niclo on the emotional ballad “Pour une fois”, a track from his latest album, Ce que je suis. The pair performed the song with dramatic and intimate staging.
Amaury Vassili joined Lisa Angell for a duet of the saucy and insistent song “C’est comme ça que je t’aime”, originally performed by the Israeli-French singer Mike Brant and featuring on Amaury’s recent album of interpretations of Mike Brant songs. The 20-year age difference between Amaury and Lisa just added to the sass of the song.
And of course, Lisa Angell gave a stunning performance of her Eurovision song, “N’oubliez pas”. Along with her crowd-pleasing performance at Eurovision In Concert on the weekend, Lisa’s performance on FCF is further evidence that France has made the right decision by sending a traditional chanson performance to Vienna this year.
