Madame Monsieur is a French duo consisting of vocalist Émilie Satt and producer Jean-Karl Lucas. They represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal with the song "Mercy", finishing in 13th place in the grand final.

History[edit]

Émilie Satt and Jean-Karl Lucas first met in 2008, and formed Madame Monsieur in 2013.[2][3][4][5] In 2015, they composed the song "Smile" for the French rapper Youssoupha, and later participated in Taratata.[6] The duo released their debut album Tandem on 4 November 2016.

On 1 January 2018, they were confirmed to be taking part in Destination Eurovision, the French national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 with the song "Mercy".[7][8][9] They qualified from the second semi-final on 20 January to the final held on 27 January.[10][11][12] In the final, they placed third with the international juries but placed first with the French public, amassing a high enough amount of combined points to win the competition. They represented France in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 held in Lisbon, Portugal, ultimately coming in thirteenth place.[13] As well as receiving the Marcel Bezençon Press Award, they were also the runner-up of the OGAE fan vote, just behind actual winner Netta Barzilai of Israel.[14]

In 2018, they provided French commentary for France 2 at that year's Junior Eurovision Song Contest alongside Stéphane Bern.[15]

Musical style[edit]

The group's musical style has been likened by The Huffington Post and Wiwibloggs to avant-pop singer-songwriter Christine and The Queens.[16][17]
