France has decided who will represent them in the Eurovision finals. It's 19-year-old Bilal Hassani.
Today the singer has reported several people that they have killed him. According to the French newspaper Le Monde, the threat is that Hassani is gay.
His lawyer Etienne Deshoulières told Le Monde that they had reported several people about insults, incitement to hatred and violence and homophobic threats.
thanks for support
Today in the afternoon, Twitter Hassani thanked for the support he received after he became aware of news news.
It's all a lot of love, he writes, and says his inbox is full of supportive messages.
19-year-old Paris is an ancestor of Morocco and became known in France when he participated in the song contest Voice in 2015, where he sang the Eurovision Song Contest "Rise like a Phoenix" a year ago.
Let him come to the international finals, called Roi, which means King. It is about self-realization and self.
The international finals this year will take place in Israel, Tel Aviv, when Israel Netta won last year.
"Next year, Jerusalem," she said in her speech. It was not noticed because the United Nations did not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. However, in September it became clear that Tel Aviv had to be an organizer.
The semi-finals take place on May 14 and 16, before the actual finals on May 18th. Since France is one of the "five biggest" in the context of Eurovision, they are directly in line with the main finals.
