The United Kingdom’s Eurovision representatives for 2016, Joe and Jake have revealed the video for their Eurovision song ‘You’re Not Alone’. The two singers who met on BBC’s The Voice will perform live in the Final on 14th May. Check out their video below.
The United Kingdom are of of the most successful countries in the Eurovision Song Contest. They have managed to rack up an impressive five wins including Sandy Shaw (1967), Lulu (1969), Brotherhood of Mann (1976), Buck’s Fizz (1981) and most recently in 1997 with Katrina and the Waves. What’s even more impressive is that they have a whopping fifteen second places from acts ranging from Cliff Richard and Matt Monro to Imaani and Sonia.

Coming in second place was Norway’s Margaret Berger and her song ‘Feed You My Love’ which received 23.5% of the vote and will also advance to the semi final stages beginning next week. Joining these songs in the semi finals will be third and fourth place songs ‘Diva’ by Dana International (11.7%) and Ukraine’s Verka Serduchka whose song ‘Dancing Lasha Tumbai’ received 5.8% of the vote.
Songs failing to qualify were Buck’s Fizz ‘Making your Mind Up’, Celine Dion ‘Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi’, Niamh Kavanagh’s ‘In Your Eyes’ and Lulu’s ‘Boom Bang a Bang’.
