Merci or may be Pardon!?
Destination Eurovision was a new show concept of France 2 with a really good show and good songs. In a very exciting voting with 8 international juries, which clearly voted for Lisandro Cuxi and the song Eva, the voting system gave to the france televote the opportunity to change with the last votes the whole result.
Madame Monsieur and the song Merci won the national final due to the highest voting from the televote.
The interesting question if it really will help France for the final result in Lisbon to ignore the taste and votes of the international jury and and the end to send what they nationally liked more.
Merci ou Pardon, that may be what the france national broadcaster will think after the grand final in Lisbon.

After some soundtracks, the singer of Divine in Eurovision found the Mind Gamers which not need to bother with the laws of time and space, or even gravity.
It was in Sydney that the supergroup’s three minds collided. Parisian-by-way-of-Venus Sébastien Tellier was touring the Milky Way when he stopped by to preach to his Alliance Bleue faithful. Among them was Daniel Stricker, who moonlights behind the Midnight Juggernauts’ drumkit, where he has been known to conjure up the ghosts of E.L.O. and Sparks’ greatest incantations. Cosmic hitchhiker John Kirby – whose travel companions have included Blood Orange, Cypress Hill, Solange or Money Mark – on a pit-stop between Los Angeles and Ásgard, mesmerized them with his consciousness-warping keyboard licks.
They merged their powers again during the last Earth Winter at Red Bull Studios Paris, emerging from the week-long communion with “Power of Power”. As much an exhortation for the listener to explore their inner landscapes as a commandment to let loose, the offering is divided into two scriptures: “Come to America” is a teleportation device straight to the open roads of California, palm trees swaying in the ocean breeze, while “Golden Boy” is a kaleidoscopic invitation to a dance ritual, featuring Karl Lagerfeld. While magnanimous, “Power of Power” is but a launching pad for the Mind Gamers’ interstellar voyage. "Power of Power", the EP, is out in vinyl and digital.

Each evening, singers of fado will come to make the show there.
Myriam, she already dreams of glory when she sings with her girlfriends the trendy tubes every Thursday afternoon. Until the day a customer listened to her: "With that voice, I will take you to the Eurovision. A few months later, she sat next to him on a plane that flew to London. We are on May 7, 1977, and she represents France at the Eurovision Grand Prix. The next day, she will be 20 years old. The unknown of the restaurant presented him with an author; Both wrote the Eurovision song and together they found a name of scene: it will be called Marie Myriam.
Last Frenchwoman to have won Eurovision forty years ago and first portuguese to do it, Marie Myriam sold four million records with the song that made her famous."
