"Il est là" (French pronunciation: [il ɛ la], He's There) was the second French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1956 (the only occasion on which contest rules allowed two entries per country), performed in French by Dany Dauberson.
The song was performed twelfth on the night (following Germany's Freddy Quinn with "So geht das jede Nacht" and preceding Luxembourg's Michèle Arnaud with "Les amants de minuit"). As the scoreboard for this Contest has never been made public, it is impossible to say how well the song did.
Lyrically, the song is in the chanson style popular at the early Contests, with Dauberson singing about the difficulties she has in trying to forget a former lover.
