Review: United Kingdom- Electro Velvet ‘Still in Love With You’

electroGod 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. Continue reading

UK Eurovision Entry to be Announced on 7th March

Power to the people. Oh eh eh.

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.

Who would you like to see as the UK’s entry? Would you prefer someone from the BBC Introducing scheme or a well established pop star. Let us know by commenting below.

Eurovision That Could Have Been: United Kingdom

Ginger Spice could have been UK Eurovision entry 2014?

Ginger Spice could have been UK Eurovision entry 2014?

The last few years the UK have selected a well known person or group to represent them at Eurovision. We’ve had power ballad Queen Bonnie Tyler, boy band legends Blue and crooner Englebert Humperdink. The UK entry is selected by a committee and not voted for by the public so there was never a list of competitors or any live shows with competing entries battling out, so this article is based on some of the rumours we’d heard. It was a shocking change of tact then when they decided to go for a relatively unknown name: Molly Smitten Downes. But what were the other options? Continue reading
