France was represented by Serge Lama, with the song '"Un jardin sur la terre", at the 1971 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 3 April in Dublin. The song was chosen internally by broadcaster ORTF.

At Eurovision[edit]

On the night of the final Lama performed 7th in the running order, following Spain and preceding Luxembourg. "Un jardin sur la terre" was a song very much in the traditional French chanson style, contrasting with much of the more generic Eurovision fare which surrounded it. At the close of voting it had picked up 82 points, placing France 10th of the 18 entries.[1]
