Amandine Bourgeois, and her entry L’Enfer et Moi was not technically an internal selection noting that there were several stages prior to the eventual choice but nevertheless, Frédéric Valencak, the current Head of Delegation is set to revamp the format even further by including the public in a nationwide vote. Late in 2013, France 3 went public with three (3) names as shortlisted by a fourteen (14) member jury panel, and the initial comments were surprisingly positive, especially with several upcoming artists putting their name forward to represent France according to various sources.

Destan, protégées of Universal Music France will be performing the song Sans Toi; Twin Twin, represented by Warner Music France will be singing the track Moustache and Joanna Lagrave from Star Academy will belt out Ma Libertè. The fact that France is actually making use of their own labels is somewhat comforting, especially when not just one label is involved. This is said due to the fact that Warner Music France was responsible for the past three entries from France, including L’Enfer et Moi (2013), Echo (You and I) (2012) and Sognu (2011), respectively.

The tracks of the national selection will not be made public prior to the selection show, which will officially kick-off on the 26th January on the programme Les Chansons D’Abord hosted by the magnificent Natasha St-Pier who proudly represented France in the 2001 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Je n’ai que mon ame which finished in fourth place, and remains to be a fan-favourite to this day. Voting will commence on the programme and will run for just over a month with the results revealed on the same programme on the 2nd March 2014.
