Quel surprise!

A French MP has said he is outraged that the song chosen to represent the nation in the Eurovision song contest has English lyrics. Jacques Myard, of the UMP party, has urged the company that runs most of France's TV networks to reconsider.

Sebastien Tellier's entry, entitled Divine, combines both English and French lyrics with electro music.

France's culture minister has defended his song, saying the country should fully support his bid for victory.

A total of 43 countries are taking part in a contest that draws hundreds of thousands of viewers from Europe and beyond.
