Sad to see that the official videos on the TF1 website are geoblocked and unable to watch outside France. I suspect any unofficial videos that have appeared on video sites will be pulled before too long, so I'll not actually link to them.
Previous years have seen the performances available to watch internationally online from the official site, so I'll check again to see if the videos become available later.
