The Eurovision contest is part of events cancelled due to the pandemic coronavirus that is endemic in the world. A program change that was much pained Tom Leeb, who was to represent France with his title “Best in me” this Saturday, may 16, in the final of the singing competition. In an interview granted to our colleagues ofEurope 1, the young man would not be against participating in the next edition, set, then, in 2021. The organizers allow the participating countries to choose the same candidate for the next edition in 2021. It is only necessary that the singer has a different song. ” We talked a little bit with France Télévisions, it would please me greatly. Now, it is in a very long time, it may take a lot of things in a year, (…) so for now, it’s a little early for France Télévisions and I can give a definitive answer “, explains the son of Michel Leeb.
He held the same speech in another interview granted to the Parisian. ” Of course I’m tempted because this opportunity I was spun between the hands. I would really like to have my chance. But by then, a lot of things can happen “. Provided that, for him, that the organisers do not make the choice to rely once again on the concept of Destination Eurovision to determine the ideal candidate. A notion of “competition” which he resented strongly. “I quit the sport because I didn’t like the competition. So I’m not sure to participate in this selection procedure there,” he says.
“High voltage drop “
In the meantime, Tom Leeb has to digest the cancellation of Eurovision contest for which he had long prepared. ” Three days after the cancellation, I thought I had the coronavirus, because I was groggy. It was just a strong voltage drop “, reassures the artist of 31 years will be on France 2 this Saturday in the broadcast Europe Shine, replacing then the Eurovision.
