France | King Bilal Brings Down The House On His First Rehearsal
Welcome back to Eurovoxx's coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 rehearsals! We're already at day six which means today we will see the second rehearsals of seventeen countries, plus the big five and Israel, which drew second half of the second semi final - including the two current favourites to win! Join us all day on our YouTube channel, website & other social media for the latest updates and video content.
Bilal first rose to prominence internationally when he entered "Destination Eurovision" which is France's national final to select their singer. Despite coming fifth with the international juries, the young singer has catapulted into stardom when he won the public vote by a massive margin. Since then he has been all around Europe to promote his song. He was already a big star on social media with his YouTube channel clocking up millions of subscribers, now Eurovision will give him the chance to add more internationally to his growing number at home. He has just recently released his new album "Kingdom". How will France do this year?

Well what can we say other than Viva La France. The song starts with a close up of Bilal's face with colourful emotions portrayed on there. It then starts with him singing his song. He looks the star, dressed in white with crystals on his jacket. Bilal Hissani is sporting the long hair, and there is no doubt that he can sing. It was effortless as he walked along the stage singing his song.
If France had been forgotten before the contest, they will certainly be remembered now. The dancers were superb, there was a ballerina dancer who made quite the impact. She brought elegance, and beauty. There were memorable words also printed on the screen depicting the theme of tolerance, and acceptance. The vocals were strong, and the subtle revamp will surely see the bookies scrambling to places bets on this one. Just as there was a tear shred in Israel's performance, the same happened here by a member of team Eurovoxx. Bravo France!!!
