Who is he?

Jessy Matador began his artistic career as a dancer in 2001. His artistic concept is a mixture of several styles, inspired by the famous African - Ivorian music ranging from hip-hop, jamaican dancehall and zouk.
He made his debut in the group called Les Coeurs Brisés with which he has performed all around the world. He started his singing career in 2008 and has scored a summer hit with the song Decale Gwada. Jessy released his new album just some weeks ago!

What the fans thought?

"This song is catchy and isn´t too reminiscent of other football songs." said a Finnish fan. "I like it! It's up-tempo and catchy - something new for the Eurovision Song Contest, but I hope the performance will be good too. Good luck France!" Magnuna from Norway added.
He finished 12th in the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with 82 points.
