"Je suis l'enfant soleil" - Anne Marie David

"Hey, come back, I'm the sun-child"

The French Final was due to be held on March 4th at the TF1 TV Studios in Paris. Before the final 2 semi-finals were recorded, hosted by Marc Menant. Three songs in each semi-final were due to qualify for the final (chosen by televoting). Due to a strike at French TV, the final was never recorded nor broadcast and the French entry was chosen by an "expert" jury.
