Destination Eurovision will consist of three televised shows. The two semi-finals will be broadcast on January 13 and 20, each presenting nine songs. Four songs from each semi-final will then compete at the grand final on January 27. The show will be used to decide who will represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal this upcoming May.

All three shows will be presented by Garou. In each semi-final, a jury made up of three Francophone and three international members will select four songs to advance to the final. The three Francophone jury members are Amir, who represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, Christophe Willem, and Isabelle Boulay. The three international jury members are Heads of Delegations from various countries: Christer Björkman (Sweden), Nicola Caligiore (Italy) and Olga Salamakha (Belarus).

In the final, the result will be decided by a jury of 10 international members (50%) and public voting (50%). Joining the Heads of Delegations from Sweden, Italy and Belarus will be the Heads of Delegation from Armenia, Bulgaria, Finland, Iceland, Israel, Russia, and Switzerland.

Some well-established names in the French music industry, including Zazie, Maître Gims, Grand Corps Malade, Vitaa and Dany Synthé, are behind some of the entries. The majority of the entries will be sung in French.
