"Et bonjour à toi l'artiste" (English translation: "And A Good Day To You Artist") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1975, performed in French by Nicole Rieu.

The song was performed third on the night (following Ireland's The Swarbriggs with "That's What Friends Are For" and preceding Germany's Joy Fleming with "Ein Lied Kann Eine Brücke Sein"). At the close of voting, it had received 91 points, placing 4th in a field of 19.

The song is a ballad, with Rieu greeting "the great artist" and reminding him or her that it is time to get to work painting. The artist is also described as an author, an illusionist and an actor.

Rieu recorded the song in no less than six languages; French, English (as "Live for Love"), German (with the French title "Vive l'amour", translated: "Long Live Love"), Spanish ("Dios te guarde buen artista"), Italian ("Buongiorno artista") and Japanese ("Soyokaze no okurimono").

It was succeeded as French representative at the 1976 Contest by Catherine Ferry with "Un, deux, trois".
