I got thinking a while ago about who would be performing the worlds song this year as so far the two songs we have had have been great (especially Imagine Dragons' Warriors) and I thought that Woodkid would be an excellent choice for the next worlds song.
For those of you who aren't familiar with him, he is a singer-songwriter/music video director and has directed music videos for (most notably) Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey to name a few.
His biggest hit Run Boy Run has been nominated for a grammy in 2013 for best music video and was nominated again for the same category in 2015 for his song The Golden Age, he has also won multiple awards for other videos he has produced but not sung.
His only album also called The Golden Age was released in 2013 and rose to number 2 in the French chats, number 4 in the Swiss charts, number 6 in the Belge charts and number 8 in the German charts.
This interveiw with him is also worth watching for the inspiration behind his songs and videos. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3yHxVo780E)
I'm hoping that if this gains enough interest someone from riot will notice and pass on the idea.
