It’s nearing 40 years since France struck gold at Eurovision. Amir is the best shot they’ve had in a long time and to mark that the “J’ai Cherché” singer decided to cover “L’Oiseau Et L’Enfant” by Marie Myriam — France’s last winner from Eurovision 1977.

Before he starts performing, Amir politely states that this is “the first time” he’s performed this song. Well you could have fooled us — this is amazing!
This cover is also a chance for Amir to showcase his live vocal ability, which is nearly flawless. Amir is in it to win it, and we’d best keep an eye on him.
