Even if the postponement of the Eurovision song contest by one year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, allowed him to run again, singer Tom Leeb said that "[s] luck was over". The one who will take his place to represent France on May 22, 2021 should be selected during a big TV show.

Tom Leeb will not represent France at Eurovision 2021. Initially selected to participate in the 2020 edition, the singer could not get on stage, like the other competitors, since the Covid-19 epidemic led to the cancellation of the show, which was to be held on May 16, a first in the history of the Eurovision song contest. "My luck is over," said Tom Leeb, a great gentleman, who will therefore not be present in Rotterdam on May 22, 2021.

For its part, France Télévisions has again decided to change its formula to choose the candidate. A call for candidates for a public selection should be launched from June 29. The future representative of France will be chosen during a major program broadcast on France 2.

The European Broadcasting Union had indicated, after the cancellation of the 2020 edition, that the selected candidates would be allowed to stand in 2021. Those who were happy to hear and see the son by Michel Leeb getting on one of the biggest stages in the world will still be able to console themselves with the official clip of his song  The Best in Me , viewed almost 435,000 times on YouTube.
