After weeks of suspense and rumours, France made up its mind for Belgrade; Sébastien Tellier will represent the country with a song titled Divine, French delegation head Bruno Berberes informed Eurovision.tv.

The song is taken from the latest album of the man, titled Sexuality, which was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo, one half of famous French duet Daft Punk.

Despite Sébastien Tellier remains unknown from a large audience, the specialists consided him to be an established master of the 'French touch', as he has already published three albums and several film soundtracks. The latest release took place on the 25th of February, and has already ranked first on iTunes France.

Tellier is currently touring France and Europe. Two weeks ago, he showed up in London and he will soon be performing in Switzerland. The next stop is Milano in April, to move forward to Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands in May. A few dates had to be cancelled though, due to his surprise participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. The day after the Final, Tellier will perform in Istanbul.

Bruno Berberes, French Head of Delegation, said: "We deeply believe in this entry and, would this choice confuse French ballads lovers, it will help with a giving the contest a new lease of life in France"

The original version of the song Divine, which is on the album and on Sébastien Tellier's MySpace page, is in English, but for the Eurovision Song Contest an English-French version will be recorded.
