French public broadcaster, France 2, opted for an internal selection in 2016. After sorting through hundreds of applications, the broadcaster is drawing nearer to a decision towards Stockholm, but is still keeping it a secret who will be the artist presenting his of her song on the 12th of March.

In September 2015, a new team with Edoardo Grassi as head of delegation, began the selection procedure in France. The team put a lot of energy and ideas into the search for an act to represent France in the Eurovision Song Contest. This year’s song will be bilingual, partly in French and partly in English. On the 12th of March Eurovision fans will hear the song for the first time and know who will perform it in Stockholm.
