2021 will be the year of the big comeback and the celebration. After a 2020 edition canceled because of the coronavirus, Eurovision will return in great shape from Rotterdam to celebrate music during a long-awaited European competition. Two years after Bilal Hassani, who will proudly represent France, in the final which will take place on May 22, 2021 Rotterdam? It’s up to you to decide … in part! Indeed, after “Destination Eurovision“, France Tlvisions will launch its new mission called” Eurovision France, it is you who decides “. For the 2021 edition, 12 French candidates are in the running and among them, some heads and voices already known to the general public like those of Barbara Pravi, Philippine or Cphaz. Behind, still unknown names hope to make the difference and fly to the Netherlands next May. Among the candidates, the young Ali intends to make the difference.
“Tonight my cry wakes up and upsets the night”
Born in Lebanon, the young candidate discovered his passion for music when he arrived in France. And it is the trio Hyphen Hyphen, touched by its history, who wrote him the title “Paris me dit (Yalla ya helo!)”, With which he hopes to win in the national selection for the Eurovision 2021. And his bet could be a winner: adding oriental touches in the verses, in homage to his origins, Ali is betting on a skipping chorus with electronic sounds which has everything to convince the ten members of the jury and Eurovision enthusiasts who will perhaps send it to the final! I sometimes hide on my face the inherited sadness that my smile will erase / The days after the feast day, it’s the love of yesterday that awaits us that the music will carry / Tonight my cry wakes up and upsets the night, yallah / Dance with me, Paris tells me / Hello yalla ta helo he launches on this effective title “Paris told me (Yalla ya helo!)”. Enough to win against its competitors? See you in a few weeks to find out!
