France was represented by Louisa Baïleche, with the song '"Monts et merveilles", at the 2003 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 24 May in Riga, Latvia. The song was chosen internally by broadcaster France 3.

At Eurovision[edit]

On the night of the final Baïleche performed 19th in the running order, following Norway and preceding Poland. Although not dissimilar in style and structure to the previous year's "Il faut du temps", "Monts et merveilles" fared less well and at the close of voting had picked up only 19 points (the highest an 8 from Bosnia-Herzegovina – who had voted by jury rather than televote), placing France 18th of the 26 entries. The 12 points from the French televote were awarded to Belgium.[1]
