French TV heavily promoting Amaury Vassili

17 April 2011 at 20:06 CEST

Amaury Vassili was already invited to many shows such as "Le Plus Grand Cabaret Du Monde" (France2), the "13h00 news" (TF1 with more than  10 millions of TV viewers), the "Sidaction"sShow (France2), "Les Années Bonheur" (France2), "Morandini!" (Direct8) etc. Amaury will continue  participating to various shows on all French TV channels. In addition, France3 broadcasts a short program several times a  day. Just before the Big Final, France3 will broadcast a video about the  Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf with Amaury Vassili and various  other artists. The target is clearly to have French TV viewers  understand the reality and the importance of the event through its  organisation, by visiting the press centre, the arena, etc, and with  interviews with European press and fans.

 "French TV viewers  need to understand that the Eurovision Song Contest is a major  international event, a sort of Olympic Music Games".

Big show on the 9th of May

Finally, a show called "En Route Pour L'Eurovision Avec Amaury"  will be recorded on the 29th of April and broadcast by France3 on May the 9th, 5  days before the Big Final. TV archives will let viewers dive into the  Eurovision Song Contest history. Many past contests singers will  participate in the show like Marie Myriam, Catherine Ferry, Séverine,  Corinne Hermes, Natasha Saint-Pier, Patrick Fiori, Tom Dice, Eric Saade,  Raphael Gualazzi and Amaury Vassili. Young French artists will join and  sing past Eurovision hits. Among them, Sofia Essaïdi, Shym (who will sing White And Black Blues), the Mamma Mia group, etc.

International fans invited

Bruno Berbérès, Director of this special show, told  us: "I want this programme to be much more than a show about the Eurovision  Song Contest, I want it to be a tribute to the Eurovision Song Contest.  Clearly, the show will be entertaining a lot but will not turn the  Contest into a joke event. As we say in France, it's not nice to laugh  at old women.

 "Finally, I invite all  the European fans to come to Paris with their own flags and participate  to the show. Information on how to register to the programme will be  provided early next week."

Warner Music Europe promoting Sognu

Amaury's record company, Warner Music Group, has decided to promote Sognu all  around Europe through all of Europe by signing deals with  radio stations. Furthermore, Warner Music Europe is preparing a European release of  Amaury's CD-album, including Sognu.
