Kendji Girac Andalouse

For the second year running, France have emerged victorious in the annual OGAE Song Contest. Following in the footsteps of Indila, Kendji Girac secured victory for Les Bleus with “Andalouse”. 

The competition saw 31 OGAE fan clubs nominate an original song, released in the previous 12 months in their country and sung in one of the country’s official languages. The votes of individual members were than collated, with each national club awarding points in the traditional Eurovision style – 12, 10, 8 and so on. Kendji amassed an impressive 248 points, finishing a full 100 points ahead of the 2015 wiwivision winner, Ireland’s Markus Feehily. Poland’s Sylwia Grzeszczak, the UK’s Ella Henderson and Sweden’s Darin round out the top five. Surprisingly, the all conquering Taylor Swift could only manage tenth on behalf of OGAE RoW.

Before y’all get your hopes up for Kendji at Eurovision — he’s probably not interested! When asked about the contest back in August he said: “Actually, I have never asked this to myself. And with my return which will be very busy, I admit that I wouldn’t know how to respond to such a request.” BOO!

Surprised to see Portugal so low. It’s a great song.

Song is rather good, and he’s very sexy 😉 Happy Ella Henderson came top 5, “Ghost” was a massive hit in 2014 and she’s a talented artist. One complaint, why is the talentless Barbie Kate Ryan top 10?

This has been my favourite song actually. So I am very happy a lot of other people like it too.
