When she performs in Kyiv in May 2017, she’ll continue a grand tradition of sexy chanteuses performing quirky pop tracks that warm hearts across Europe and represent la République the right way.
And in a nod to that French Eurovision legacy, Alma gave us life covering France Gall’s 1965 Eurovision classic “Poupée de cire, poupée de son” at Sidaction 2017 – the annual French fundraiser for HIV/AIDS charities.
Working a pink 60s-style mini, and joined by a squad of neon-wigged backing dancers, France’s Eurovision 2017 act threw it down.
She sparkled during her note-perfect performance, working her microphone stand for all it was worth, showing off cute kooky dance moves and giving one of her lucky backing dancers the honour of kissing her hand. Ooh la la, Paris is burning, y’all!
Alma continues promo for “Requiem”
As well as supporting AIDS charities, Alma took the opportunity to continue her domestic promo trail for Eurovision, giving another performance of “Requiem“.
The chic chanteuse took centre stage in an LBD and took us to the moon and back. All focus was on quality of song and quality of voice here. Unlike the Eurovision version of “Requiem”, homegirl kept it real for her home audience and performed straight through in French.
Amir serves up Sinatra
Alma wasn’t the only French Eurovision star on stage at the Moulin Rouge for Sidaction either. Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model 2016 finalist Amir served Sinatra realness in a tux, performing classic “New York, New York.”
The “J’ai Cherché” star jazzed things up, with a legion of sparkling backing dancers. But all eyes remained on him, proving he’s a true showman.
What is Sidaction?
Sidaction 2017 was filmed at the Moulin Rouge on March 20 and broadcast on France 2 on March 25. Sidaction has been held since 1994 to raise awareness and collect funds for HIV/AIDS. Donations are allocated to organisations in France and around the world.
