France 3 has become more innovative with a new way to select the artist and the song which will represent France in May 2013 by creating a selection commitee.
Composed of twelve personalities from the music industry (writers, composers, singers, managers…) and representatives from France Televisions (France 3 and France Ô), this selection commitee will meet in early 2013.
A new head of the French delegation
Frédéric Valencak, assistant director of France 3 entertainment department, has been appointed head of the French Eurovision Song Contest delegation.
Bruno Berberes, who was the head of the French Eurovision Song Contest delegation, very involved in his casting director activities, is now artistic advisor of the French Eurovision Song Contest delegation.
The Grand Final of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast live on France 3, commented, as last year, by Mireille Dumas and Cyril Feraud. One of the Semi-Finals will be broadcast on France Ô.
Back in May France was represented by the international Indonesian-born star Anggun who created an impressive number for her song Echo (You And I).
