Copenhagen - AFP

French Eurovision hopefuls Twin Twin on Friday said their country could fare better in the contest if their entries were a bit more fun and colourful. The group, set to compete in Saturday's final with electro-pop party anthem "Moustache", said France's dismal record in the contest over the past three decades was due to "a mix of things." "First of all they need more moustache, of course. And they need more fun, and they need more colour and energy," singer Lorent Idir told AFP in Copenhagen, which is hosting Eurovision 2014. Many Frenchmen believe the reason they haven't won the annual music spectacle since 1977, when Marie Myriam won with "L'oiseau et l'enfant", is due to a lack of political allies in Europe. "Everything could be political but we don't really care, because we are artists and what we are doing is music," said Idir, whose group is known for its energetic, joie de vivre style. Still, the group will be making a political statement on this year's Eurovision stage -- their infectious tune about growing a moustache is really a critique of today's consumerism. "It's a story about somebody who has everything. He has a good car, he has a phone, he has girls ... but he wants something else. It's a moustache," said Idir. "It's consumerism. It makes people unhappy because it makes people think they don't have enough (when) they have everything," he added. The French act on Friday languished in the bottom half of the odds table, with Sweden, Austria and Armenia numbering among the bookies' favourites to be number one at Eurovision this year.
