Eurovision 2023: La Zarra will represent France, “a modern artist with a ‘so chic’ signature”

Eurovision 2023 La Zarra will represent France a modern artist

published on January 12, 2023

France has found its new ambassador! Next May, the country will participate in the 67th edition of Eurovision, which will take place in England, and it is a Canadian-Moroccan artist who has been chosen to wear our colors.

Eurovision is about to make a comeback! The last edition was won by Ukraine, which was represented by Kalush Orchestra with their song Stefanihas. The group had crushed the competition by obtaining a total of 631 points, thus signing the third victory of the country in the history of the game. Tradition would have it that the new competition took place in Ukraine but, due to the Russian invasion on the territory, it was agreed that the security conditions were not met to organize such an event there. It is therefore UK, nation that came in second place, that the show will take place on May 13, in the city of Liverpool. On that day, the final will be offered while the semi-finals will take place at the same venue on May 9 and 11, 2023.

To defend the colors of France, it will be necessary to count on La Zarra, a young Canadian-Moroccan artist revealed in 2021 by her hit You will go away, which earned him a nomination for French-speaking revelation of the year at the NRJ Music Awards. The following year, in 2022, she released the single Without me. “I am very honored to represent France at Eurovision, the most iconic song contest in the world“, she reacted after the announcement of her participation in Eurovision. And to continue: “What pride for me to have the chance to perform my song in front of millions of viewers around the world. I am a great admirer of the most beautiful French voices like Edith Piaf, Barbara, Dalida, but also Céline Dion, and I can’t wait to introduce my song to all Europeans who, I hope, will become theirs.“.

An iconic artist
Alexandra Redde-Amiel, head of the French delegation to Eurovision, has in any case full confidence in her artist. “La Zarra is a modern woman and artist with a ‘so chic’ French signature! A voice that transports us through time, taking us on a journey through several eras. (…) La Zarra is an iconic artist who will wear the colors of France loud and clear in Liverpool in May 2023 during the biggest song contest in the world.“, she said in a press release. That’s all we wish for her, especially after the defeat of France last year, which came second to last in the Eurovision rankings.

Remember that last year, it was the public’s choice that led the Bretons Alvan & Ahez to represent France in the famous competition. This year, it is the head of the French delegation, Alexandra Redde-Amiel, and the management of France Télévisions who have decided to put the national team on hold and put La Zarra center stage.
