I know people will think that Albania is the first proper national final, but as that took place in 2017 this - the French selection "Destination Eurovision" - is the first national final of 2018!
How have we got here?
Over the past couple of weeks, we've had two pre-recorded semi-finals televised all over the place (Tv5 Monde, France 2, The Internet).
So what happens tonight?
So glad you asked. Tonight, the eight singers and songs below will compete in a straight sing-off for the right to compete for France.
There will be the usual Gallic filling and shrugging and talking but, ultimately, the French public and a jury of ten internationalists in a 50/50 split will decide the winner.
Clearly, the one with the most points wins!
