Bilal Assani is a 19—year-old French singer and video blogger, of Moroccan origin. He became widely known thanks to the songs and videos that he published on his YouTube channel.

This is what Bilal's performance on the show looked like. At one time, it was with this composition that an extraordinary artist, who is often called a "Bearded Woman", won the Eurovision Song Contest.
