Saturday the 5th of March. That’s when France will decide its artist and song for Torino in their national selection Eurovision France: C’est vous qui décidez. The show kicks off at 21:10 CET and is expected to last two hours and forty minutes.
France 2 will reveal the 12 competing acts and song at a press conference on Wednesday, 16 February. Producers previously described the selection as eclectic, so we expect another year of genre-hopping — from beautiful ballads to dance floor stompers.
The public and a jury of ten musical professionals will once again share responsibility for choosing the Eurovision 2022 act. France’s Eurovision commentators Stéphane Bern and Laurence Boccolini will host the show. Hopefully they will help woo Europeans to tune in, as countries including Denmark, Romania and Serbia also choose that evening.
Eurovision France 2022: C’est vous qui décidez!
France Télévisions introduced C’est vous qui décidez! as a new national final format in 2021. Fans and critics praised the new format, and HoD Alexandra celebrated its success in taking France back to the top of the scoreboard. She later confirmed the show would return in 2022.
The French broadcaster opened submissions for C’est vous qui décidez! 2022 on 21 June 2021. The rules stipulate that, among other things, all performers must be at least 16 years old, and that the songs and compositions entered must be mainly in French and/or regional languages. This includes tongues spoken in overseas French territories, including Reunionese, Corsican, Breton and Futunan.
