The countdown is now entering it’s final stages, with just over a week to go before the the Norwegian capital Oslo plays host to the first semi final for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. As always, we’ll be expecting the big frocks, the big numbers, the chord changes, the frocks… Once again this year, the competition is divided into two semi finals (May 25 and 27) and the grand final (May 29).
France has automatic entry into the grand final on May 29.
FRANCE : Jessy Matador – Allez Ola Olé
This is what’s called ‘killing two birds with one stone’. You’ve got a song that will be just perfect for using as France’s official anthem for the 2010 FIFA World cup next month and it’s a bit up and celebratory, so why not use it as the country’s Eurovision entry too!? Congolese singer Jessy is out front – no stranger to chart success in France, enjoying two top 20 placings throughout the past couple of years. But whether ‘Allez Ola Olé’ gets them anywhere near the top of the leader board on May 29 remains to be seen.
