Earlier this week, Amir made an appearance on Israeli radio station 100FM. On the show VIP with Moshiko Shtern, Amir talked about his Eurovision experience, his plans for the future, and treated listeners to a trilingual version of “J’ai cherhé”, singing in English, French and Spanish.
Amir — who grew up in Israel and speaks fluent Hebrew — talked about his new single, “On dirait” (“It looks like”), due to be released at the end of summer. It’s another track off hit debut album Au coeur de moi, which has already reached Gold status in France, selling over 50,000 copies.
Another song discussed was the album track “Lost”. Amir explained that it deals with a feeling Amir gets when he doesn’t quite understand his wife when he’s only trying to make her happy. Awww….
The performance of “J’ai cherché” starts at 3:04.
Amir also mentioned his recent performance at the opening concert for EURO 2016. Amir shared that David Guetta, who had also performed at the event, had told Amir he liked “J’ai cherché”, and was very pleased that Amir had finally brought France Eurovision success. Amir and David are both labelmates on Warner Music, so Amir is hoping to collaborate with him in future.
Speaking about his Eurovision experience, Amir said he is overwhelmed with his success. When asked whether he had a rivalry with Hovi Star, Amir said he supported Hovi and would have been happy if Hovi had beaten him or even won the contest — and Hovi feels the same.
He rounded off his appearance with the trilingual performance of “J’ai cherché”, a combination of the French-English Eurovision version, the English version released in Israel, and the Spanish version Barei helped him write.
Amir has also announced dates for an extensive tour of France, promoting his new album and celebrating his Eurovision success.
