"Allez Ola Olé" (French pronunciation: ​, Come on! Ola! Olé!) is a French Language song performed by Jessy Matador that represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010. The song was chosen internally, and was announced 24 February 2010. The song was to be used by French broadcaster France Télévisions as The Summerhit of 2010 and also for promoting the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and the title of the song refers to the album Music of the World Cup: Allez! Ola! Ole!, released in 1998 to coincide with the '98 World Cup, held in France.[1]

Matador was selected internally by France Télévisions to represent France at the contest, and announced as the selected artist on 19 February 2010, after rumours of Christophe Willem, David Guetta and Emmanuel Moire being selected for the role.[2][3] On 24 February Matador's song was announced,[1] and was released online on 10 May.[4] As of April, 2013, it has had over 32 million hits on YouTube and this is the second most viewed video on the official YouTube channel of Eurovision after Lena's "Satellite" (41 million).
