A few weeks ago France 2 revealed the 18 acts set to compete in the second edition of Destination Eurovision. And now — in a musical eruption coloured red, white et bleu — short snippets for each entry have been released. We are here for it.
Sticking with the same procedure as last year, France’s national broadcaster has decided to present short snippets of the competing artists’ tracks in the lead up to the competition. Last year, acts were not allowed to release full versions of their tracks prior to Destination Eurovision itself.
However, this year the organisers are allowing for full renditions to be published online. Given that not every performer has taken up this opportunity yet, we’ll be taking a look at solely at the snippets to make sure everyone gets equal representation. For now anyway. Our curiosity may get the better of us later.
Destination Eurovision 2019: Format
This year, Destination Eurovision goes live for all three shows, not just the final. All three shows – the two semi-finals and the grand final – will have a 50/50 split of public and jury voting, as in Eurovision itself.
Unlike in last year’s show, the three-person panel will only voice their opinions on the acts, and not actually cast a vote. Instead, a 20-person international jury will be responsible for that half of the vote.
Which of the 18 snippets is your favourite?
