Who is Juliette Moraine?
This young singer comes from the French department of Yonne. Along with singing Juliette Moraine is able to play the cello and also has taken to the stage in recent years with shows such as a comedy version of Romeo and Juliet. She plans to release her first album in 2021.
France was one of seven countries to participate in the first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956. Since then they have participated in every contest aside from 1974 and 1982. Their withdrawal in 1974 was caused by the death of President Georges Pompidou, while 1982’s withdrawal was a result of TF1 declining to enter the contest. France has won the contest on five occasions, the most recent being in 1977 when Marie Myriam performed “L’oiseau et l’enfant”. France’s best result of the 2000s came in 2001 when Natasha St-Pier finished 4th in Copenhagen, Denmark.
