France 2004

France was represented by Jonatan Cerrada and the song « À chaque pas » at the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, held in istanbul, Turkey.

France Télévisions decided that they would select their entry internally and as a result, Cerrada will represented the country. At first, the broadcaster chose a different song entitled « Laissez-moi le temps », but decided to use the alternative « À chaque pas » instead of the original decision.
