France 2016: one more clue to the French representative

As France 2 reached 3,000 followers on Twitter, we got the second hint of who will be representing La France at the next Eurovision Song Contest, held in Stockholm, Sweden.

Earlier this month, the @EurovisionF2 account for France 2, the French broadcaster, tweeted the following photo hinting at who might represent them at the next Eurovision Song Contest:

The tweet reads “Hint #1: Shooting day, meeting here on 12.03.16 to find out who will be the artist to represent France!! #road2eurovision”

Then, earlier today, the account posted the following tweet:

Which as you may guess states: ‘at 3,000 followers, one more hint! #whoistheartist #Eurovision’.

At that time, the account had approximately 2,950 followers, so it was just a matter of time for them to reach the goal of 3,000 and reveal the extra hint.

As time passed and the account finally reached its goal followers, here is the second hint on who the French representative will be:

The tweet reads: ‘Heat #2: The artist let us discover live their inseparable guitar! #Eurovision #cometogether’

So there you have it, are you able to guess who the artist to represent France in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm will be?

As part of the Big Five, France will be eligible to automatically qualify for the grand final, held live from the Globe Arena on May 14th, 2016.
