Slimane: Eurovision 2017, why did he refuse to represent France?
While the name of Slimane began circulating to represent us at Eurovision 2017, his manager denied the information.
No Slimane at the Eurovision. The Voice of the candidate 5, which won the grand final with his coach Florent Pagny, (recently assaulted by two individuals) do not take over from his friend Amir. The manager of the star confirmed the bad news in the pages of Télé-Loisirs : “Slimane is taking a lot of fun on stage and it would be too complicated to tour between parenhèses to give their all for Eurovision .” As expected, the singer will not be able to travel to Ukraine due to the overloaded schedule. Difficult also to pass after Amir, who finished in sixth place last year.
If the competition date approaches gradually, the identity of the person who will represent us well remains unclear . At melty, it was even proposed that the rap represents us this year at the Eurovision 2017 , to change a little. Even if Slimane has denied, there are still some possibilities, notably with the charming Florent Mothe or the young Eugénie, new musical revelation with his video “Then Danse” . The only certainty we have for the moment is that the show will be live from Kiev on 13 May and Marianne James and Stephane Bern will comment on the show. It remains to know the name of the person to be encouraged. Disappointed at not seeing Slimane represent us at the Eurovision?
