After a brief affair with internal selection methods, France returns with its first national final since 2019. However, Destination Eurovision is out and Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez! is in. The 30 January one-shot final will see 12 acts compete for the opportunity to represent the French at Eurovision 2021.
And, for once, international fans won’t be restricted to internet live streams. It will also be possible for many to watch the old-fashioned way — on TV!
Here’s how and you can watch the grand final of Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez!.
Watch Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez!
Time: 21:05 CET to 23:35 CET
French viewers should switch to France 2. Meanwhile, fans across much of Europe will be able to watch via TV5 Monde. The network is available on most basic satellite and cable packages. It is even free-to-air in many cases. Alas, the show doesn’t appear in the listings for TV5 Monde in regions outside of Europe.
French viewers can watch using the France 2 live stream. However, this is typically geo-blocked.
International viewers may be better off trying the TV5 Monde (Europe) live stream.

Eurovision France’s new voting system will be divided into two stages. The first stage will be the qualification phase: the seven songs that come first in the public vote will be selected for a final vote. An eighth song can be picked by the jury — a so-called “euro-ticket” — and will be eligible for the final vote. The vote will then be reset to zero. The public and the jury will then vote 50/50 for the song that will represent France at Eurovision 2021.
