Representing France is Amandine Bourgeois with L'Enfer Et Moi.

From an early age Amandine Bourgeois realised that music was important to her. She studied music theory at school and then flute lessons at the Nice Conservatory.

It’s an honour to represent France at the Eurovision Song Contest, I’m going to give it my all

After fronting a number of bands, and playing cover versions in bars around Toulouse, Amandine’s big break came in 2008 when she won the sixth series of La Nouvelle Star (French Pop Idol).

A year later she released her first solo album 20m² which went gold. She recorded her second album, Sans Amour Mon Amour, in the famous Abbey Road studios in London.

Amandine says her musical influences range from English pop and rock to Motown and soul. She has sung with German rockers The Scorpions and has opened for legendary French singer Johnny Hallyday at the Royal Albert Hall.
