French entrant, hosts and more, live from Nice.

Today, the French broadcaster has held a press conference, live from the world famous Hôtel Negresco in Nice. Many pieces of information about Junior Eurovision 2023 were disclosed during the event. Here they are:


France Télévisions, this year’s host broadcaster, has made its mind up. France will be represented by young Zoé Clauzure in Nice.

13-year old Zoé was born in Montrouge (near Paris) and is known for having been a semi-finalist in the 7th edition of The Voice Kids, back in 2020.

France Télévisions is hence faithful to its radition of sending former The Voice participants to Junior, and given the results since the country returned to the competition in 2018, we cannot see why they would change strategy.

The song she will performed is called “Cœur” (Heart). It is an uptempo track penned by Noée (who took part to French national final in 2018 and has collaborated with Barbara Pravi on several occasions).


FTV has also revealed the much anticipated names of the hosts who will welcome Europe in Nice on November 26th. It will be a duo, with Olivier Minne and Laury Thilleman.

Paris Match

Olivier is back, after having presented the show in 2021. He’s one of the most popular TV host in France, mainly because of his game show “Fort Boyard”. He is also a writer and a comedian who now lives between Paris and Los Angeles. He is no stranger to Eurovision since he was the French commentator in the late 1990’s and the spokeperson on a couple of occasion.




One former Miss France replaces another one. In 2021,it was Elodie Gossuin. This year, Laury will do the job. She was crowned in 2020 ad his now a rising TV personality who is getting used to presenting live music events like “La Fête de la Musique” or the annual “Victoires de la Musique”, the French Grammys.





France Télévisions

One important element of the show was also presented. The stage in Palais Nikaïa will be quite colourful, in the shape of wings (in order to represent kid’s will to fly, create and imagine). It will consist of a 30-metre centerpiece with a 12-metre high screen. The venue itself will host up to 5000 spectators (a big improvement compares to 2021).




The first big event of Junior Eurovision 2023 will take place at Hôtel Negresco, a world famous landmark of the French Riviera on Monday, November 20th. The red carpet and the draw will be broadcast on France 4 channel as well as on the official YouTube channel.



Everything seems settled now for this 21st edition of Junior Eurovision. The French delegation can now proudly say “C’est parti!”. So wht do yu think of France Télévisions’ choices?
