"Je veux donner ma voix" - Nayah

"I want to give my voice, I want to give my words"

The French Final was held on March 2nd at L'Olympia in Paris, hosted by Julien Lepers & Karen Cheryl. The winner was chosen by 50% "expert" jury (10 people giving 1-10 points to each song - first column of results) and 50% televoting (2nd column of results). As there was a tie between Nayah & Ginie Line, the televoting took precedence.
