Over the past week and a half we have been gradually unveiling our top 100 songs from the last ten years of Eurovision (2007-2016). Now that all has been revealed, here is the full countdown from number 100 to number one!
God knows we all love something new and innovative at Eurovision. You only have to look back on the last ten years and you can see the great variety from the bearded lady Conchita Wurst, to the elderly Russian Grannies in 2012, scary mask wearing rockers Lordi and Ireland’s Dustin the Turkey puppet. For some of these acts the risk has paid off and saw them walking away with the Eurovision crown, others however failed to qualify.
After months of silence, the UK have finally announced their plans for the Eurovision Song Contest for 2015. On the 7th March the BBC will reveal their entry for the 2015 singing competition. Like last year, the song will be chosen by an internal selection process and will debut on the BBC Red Button Service which is available on the BBC Eurovision website for international viewers.
Last year the same process saw relatively unknown singer Molly Smitten Downes take to the Eurovision stage after a string of unsuccessful attempts from well known veteran acts including Bonnie Tyler, Blue and Englebert Humperdink.
