Eurovision 2013: Amandine Bourgeois - L'enfer Et Moi
Rehearsals are underway in Malmö for this year's Eurovision Song Contest, with a strong entry from France from Amandine Bourgeois with the song L'enfer Et Moi
Amandine Bourgeoise won La Nouvelle Star, France's version of Pop Idol in 2008, and she released her debut album the following year, entitled 20m², a top five album in France.
Her second album Sans amour mon amour came out in 2012.
She also opened for Johnny Hallyday during his concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London last year, and has duetted with the Scorpions on a version of the song Still Loving You.
The song was written by Boris Bergman, the music composed by David Salkin.
For all its' faults, it's worth remembering that the Eurovision Song Contest is pretty much the only time that the mainstream media in the UK gives viewers the chance to experience music from outwith the anglophone sphere.
There are two preliminary rounds ahead of the final, the first on the 14th, the second on the 16th.
France are automatically in the finals on Saturday, when the viewers across the continent will get their say.
