Patricia is dressed in black leather trousers and a thin black shawl, and is wearing what resembles a gold butterfly on her top. The set is dimly lit and Patricia is all alone on stage. For an artist of Patricia's calibre, her vocals do all of the talking and nothing else is required to enhance the already stunning performance.

Patricia is vocally immaculate throughout her rehearsals, and her inimitable class and years of vast experience as a performer worldwide stand her in great stead for this competition.

The second French press conference was equally as full as yesterdays, as the world's media all took an interest in France's biggest star. Patricia was asked how she spends her free time. She said "I like to spend time with family, friends, walking the dog, shopping. I do travel a lot with working."

When asked about the lyrics of the song, Patricia adds "There is a part of poetry in there, the character is similar to me, although I don't want to die for love!."

Patricia revealed that she didn't choose specifically the song to represent France in this years Eurovision Song Contest, she was asked to specifically sing Et S'il Fallait Le Faire. Patricia's team gave the CD to French Television, and set a condition that they were to choose the song which would represent France in Moscow.

Patricia said that she likes Russian traditions such as music, they have beautiful melodies and wonderful lyrics and great emotions, similar to what we feel."

The press conference was ended by a surprise for Patricia Kaas, the Managing Director of Sony Music Russia entered the stage to present her with a Diamond Disc for her album Kabaret and it's sales in Russia.
