Jérôme PillementBorn: September 3rd, 1960
Jérôme Pillement conducted the French entry to the 1991 Eurovision Song Contest in Rome, ‘C’est le dernier qui a parlé qui a raison’, sung by Amina. The first thing she did after she had sung her entry, was rushing to Pillement to give him a kiss on the cheek – possibly because the orchestra, which had made some grave mistakes while playing the Greek and Luxembourg entries earlier that evening, had been flawless in the three minutes before. This French entry with clear influences of the North African musical tradition scored an equal number of points as the winner, Sweden, but had to settle for second place because of the lower number of high marks (10 and 12 points) than the Swedes.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Jérôme Pillement will be published on this website
