Slimane has confirmed his participation in the next edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. ‘Mon Amour’ is the title of the song that he will present in Malmö next May, also safely, since, as is known, France is one of the five countries participating in Eurovision that go directly to the final, along with Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
Winner of The Voice 2016, Slimane Nebchi is one of the most popular singers in France today. Their four albums, ‘À bout de rêves’ (2016), ‘Solune’ (2018), ‘VersuS’ with Vitaa (2019) and ‘Chroniques d’un Cupidon’ (2022), are certified with at least one Gold Record or a Platinum Record. Furthermore, the figures for his singles, such as ‘Des milliers de je t’aime’, are in the hundreds of millions. Slimane has at least one single certified with a Diamond Record, ‘Je le donne’ (2018) with Vitaa, and with several that have reached Gold, such as the recent ‘Chez moi’ (2023) with Claudio Capéo, or the Platinum, like ‘La recette’ (2022), to mention a couple.
Slimane’s confirmation in Eurovision stands out from the recent trend, since, in recent times, more or less unknown talents, or young promises, have represented France in Eurovision, as has been the case of Barbara Pravi in 2021, Alvan and Ahez in 2022, or La Zarra in 2023. This time, France is going all out by sending an artist who plays on the radio and fills stadiums.
On the other hand, Slimane is already the fourth artist confirmed for the next edition of Eurovision. Marina Statti, who will represent Greece, will have to go through the semifinals; Mustii, who will play for Belgium, and Silia Kapsis, who will play for Cyprus.
