France chooses Anggun for Eurovision!

It has finally come to pass. For the longest time, I’ve been saying over and over that France needs to get their heads out of the sand and send Anggun as their representative for the Eurovision Song Contest. This morning, broadcaster France 3 has made my dream a reality with the announcement that the French-Indonesian singer will fly the tricolore in Baku. Anggun has a unique, soulful voice and paired with the passion of the French language, combined with her beauty and international fame, she will most definitely do France proud. Watch her spellbinding performance of one of her biggest hits Cesse La Pluie below:

And check out Anggun taking a break from dramatic balladry and indulge in a bit of light-hearted Eurovision fun with her performance of 1967’s winning song Puppet On A String:

I am super, super excited! I can’t wait to see what’s next in store for France’s bid.
