I really don’t understand why Mercy is so hyped. It’s actually pretty boring in my opinion and has nothing special to it that will make it stand out at eurovision.. So choose wisely France.

1. Louka “Mamma Mia”
2. Malo “Ciao”
3. June the Girl “Same”

I see I’m in the minority, but Jamais Sans Toi is my favorite. They would be awesome in ESC.

All nine are either kinda good or kinda ok for me – I don’t hate or dislike any of them, but at the same time I don’t really love any of them. I guess Mercy is the best of the bunch and also Lisboa Jérusalem and Jamais sans toi stand out a bit. I could change my opinion when I heard entire songs – actually I’ll definitely will, but now I voted for those three songs I mentioned.

5. Noée – l’an près de l’autre
6. Malo- ciao
7. June the girl- same
8. PhenoMen- jaimas sans toi
9. Igit- lisboa Jérusalem

As a French person, I think that Mamma Mia is really cliché, the lyrics are not meaningless but neither meaningful… We have French variety with Noée, more modern songs with Monsieur Madame or June The Girl, but I find the studio version of “Same” too messy, her voice is not natural, we’ll see the live ! Emmy and Sweem have radio-friendly songs I guess and Igit have a really Parisian entry like Alma last year which can be good or bad ^^’ “Ciao” is my favourite so far with “Mercy”, I found these song really international with some French touch… Read more »

So snippets are supposed to be teasers to wet the appetite, it is not the main meal yet. So it is a little bit early to say if the dish was tasty. Let’s wait for the full release.

However. Did this wet my appetite? Not really I am afraid. I listened diligently to all of them several times but at the end of each repeat I just wanted to go back to Albania and to enjoy Eugent Bushpepa instead. But I reserve my full judgement until we hear them in full

Tbh, I love all of them. So proud of our NF. France is back, finally.
I think “Mercy” really stands out at the moment. “Same” is good too but I’m affraid the live version won’t be as good as the studio version. “Mamma Mia” could be either so freakin good or really bad.
“Ciao” and “Jerusalem” could sound so good live and become the dark horses of the NF. I’m waiting for the full version.
As for “OK ou K.O” it reminds me “L’enfer et moi” (2013).

None of them can really stand out and none of them is really known in France, there is only Lisandro who won the last edition of The Voice, which had a hit song with his first song “Danser” and Nassi who also had a very big hit this summer with his song “La Vie Est Belle” (which has some Stromae vibes), all hopes are wagered on them, fingers crossed…

I think Mercy can stand out in ESC with the full song and help France to get a good rank. She gives a real message

How can you know that none of them will stand out ? These are only short clips of few seconds ffs.
As for Lisandro, it’s a joke, right ? He maybe had a hit song this summer but his album flopped big time. And I don’t think he would be a great representative (too young, too full of himself). In addition, we don’t know his entry yet. There is not guarantee that his song will be great.
Same thing for Nassi – even though I love him.

The whole song will not be so different from those clips, we can have an idea of ??the vibe just by those clips and it’s not glorious so far… Also, who has talking about chart sales? what it has to do with the ESC? Even that, the song shouldn’t be on his album, it’s a new song so your point is invalid. And being “too young” or “too full of yourself” isn’t necessarily a bad thing, look at Sweden, they are the best example but every time they end up in the top 5… this is the goal of the… Read more »

1. Yes you can have an idea. But not a definitive idea based on a 10 seconds clip. What would be “1944” without its insane bridge or its staging ? I don’t think it would have stood out in the Grand Final. You need to evaluate the whole package. 2. Well, you said that “none of them is really known in France” like it’s a bad thing. You also added that his song was a summer hit – which does not guarantee that his entry will be good. 3. What Sweden has to do with anything ? I’m talking about… Read more »

I’ve only voted for Mercy and Mamma Mia.
Mercy clearly stands out here. It sounds less generic and forgettable.
Mamma Mia is just the most enjoyable one.

Mamma Mia has more chances to flop in ESC 2018 than Mercy. Mercy is a song who gives a real message. Mamma Mia is a good song but too classic for participate to ESC while Mercy is more likely to stand out in ESC. Mercy is really good.
Mamma Mia will do bottom 5 while Mercy can do as well as Alma this year
(ITs my personal opinion)

1. Noée
2.Sweem
3.Emmy
4.PhenoMen

I think France has really done a great job with their national selection this year a lot of promising talent but I’m #TeamSweem

Yes, and for me this is maybe the only mistake from this “destination eurovision” format. For me, a song cannot be judge by a single listen …

Sometimes, I like a song and after 2-3 listening, It become boring and sometime the opposite.

Be able to review in advance the potential of each song with few listen and then judge the live version would guarantee a better choice.

In Eurovision everyone expect the eurofans judgea song based of their first listen so this is a creíble way to send an act to Eurovision

The 9 songs look good but the act that I anticipate the most is Emmy Liyana. She has so much personnality and stage presence but still very subtle, can’t wait to see her selling it.

I am a bit shocked by the poll’s result ! My favourite tops at the 9th position only ! The leading entry won’t win in my opinion because it’s by the less famous artist here…

IGIT and Emmy are just amazing. Can’t wait to listen to the full version of their entries.
Really hope that IGIT can pull a good performance on stage. I think Lisboa Jerusalem would be great singing live.

They’re all good. What a nightmare for the selectors! As I said before, perhaps some neighbouring countries could grab the runners-up in this process? 😀
