Earlier today, the three (3) entries bidding to represent France at the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest were unveiled on Channel Europe 1, one of the most famous radio stations in the country. Eventually, they were also published on the official website of France 3 in order for a broader view from both a local and a foreign perspective, the latter bearing more significance due to the competition that lies ahead for the BIG FIVE country in just a couple of months.

Whilst it is not easy to get a clear picture of the songs based on these very short extracts, one could easily see them to between quite different from each other. The choice is between three (3) songs of considerable difference as already have been stated; Moustache is an uptempo electro pop song sung by trio Twin Twin and it sounds like a mixture of Dur Dur d'être bébé and Lipstick; Ma Liberté is a strong power ballad written by the successful Philip Vella and Gerard James Borg with vocals provided by Star Academy finalist Joanna; Sans Toi is a typical ballad sung in English and French, adding to the cheese due to the fact that it is performed by a boy-band.

The outcome of the selection process will be announced on the 2nd March during the programmes Les Chansons d’Abord hosted by Natasha St-Pier, 2001 representative of France, who successfully finished in fourth place back in Copenhagen, Denmark. The winning song will have the honour to carry the French flag on the 10th May 2014, with the hope of bringing a long awaited 6th victory to France, 37 years after the victory of Marie Myriam with L’Oiseau et l’Enfant.
