Eurovision 2019 : Bilal Hassani finished 14th, the netherlands prevail !

It was his childhood dream and Bilal Hassani had the chance to be able to achieve it. The young singer, only 19 years old has represented France on the stage of the 64th edition of the Eurovision contest, held in Tel Aviv, Israel, after the victory last year of Netta. Unfortunately, it has not been crowned king of the singing contest…

After having obtained the investiture French following his victory in the program of France 2 Destination Eurovision – facing, in particular with Emmanuel Moire and Chimene Badi – Bilal Hassani has tried to defeat the curse that affects the hexagon, as France has not won the competition since… 1977. It was the singer Marie Myriam , who had reported the cut of the song which became a cult The Bird and the Child, whose author Joe Gracy was recently turned off.

Bilal Hassani, who had a nice scare a few hours earlier because of voice problems, has tried to take his title as King. Past in 21st position in the competition, he unfortunately finished in 14th-place with 105 points. This is Duncan Laurence, who is the candidate of the netherlands, who won with 492 points. This is the 5th time that the country wins.

As a reminder, the former candidate of The Voice Kids is going to release his first album entitled Kingdom, on April 26, 2019.
