Bilal Hassani

Bilal was born in Paris to a Moroccan family from Casablanca, which explains his strong genealogical connection to North Africa and Iberia.
As a queer child of Muslim immigrants, this young performer--not even 20 yet--has known his share of bigotry and hatred, but his competing song, "Roi," is about owning one's identity and being proud of it.
What an eclectic and beautifully diverse ethnic identity he has to be proud of!

Bilal's ancestry is as colorful and full of surprises as one would expect from this out-of-the-box performer. He is 72.2% North African, 17.6% Iberian, 3.7% Nigerian, 2.7% Ashkenazi Jewish, 2.2% Italian and 1.6% West African!
