But ahead of the show, what do you think? Earlier we asked wiwibloggs readers who they wanted to qualify from the second semi.
While nine acts will perform tonight, only four can qualify for the grand final. The poll results are now in.
Your favourite act is Seemone with her emotional track “Tous les deux”. With a total of 1,056 votes and 23.13% respectively, you’ve put her in the top spot!
Closing up in second place is Gabriella. Her track “On cherche encore (Never Get Enough)” accumulated 956 votes, putting her not far behind Seemone with a share of 20.94% of all votes cast.
And in third place was Tracy De Sá. Her sassy urban take on “Por aqui” got your attention and received 14.61% or 667 votes. Following in fourth place was Ugo with “Ce qui me blesse”, on 13.95% of the vote.
So based on the poll results, these four acts are the ones you’d like to see qualify for the French grand final next weekend. At the other end of the table are Noémie and Doutson who didn’t manage to grab as many of your votes, on 3.92% and 2.91% respectively.
But as we’ve seen during last week’s show, anything can change during the live semi-final. It’s the first time we’ll hear all the songs performed live — and in some cases, the first time we’ll hear the full version of the song. As last week’s semi-final showed, a song that slays in the studio version can fall flat on stage — and vice versa.
Tonight’s lucky four will join semi-final one qualifiers Aysat, Bilal Hassani, Chimène Badi and Silvàn Areg in the grand final next Saturday
