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.
Weeks of speculation came to a head tonight when UK announced that Bianca and Alex aka Electro Velvet will be their Eurovision entry for 2015. Their song is called “Still in Love With You” and the official music debuted on BBC’s Red Button channel tonight introduced by Scott Mills.
Ever since the UK announced that they would reveal their Eurovision act on 7th March, speculation has been rife as to who it would be. Initial reports seemed to be that it would be an unknown but die hard fans are hoping for something a bit more that will generate a bit of buzz. What we do know however is that the choice will be revealed on Saturday night from 9.30pm on the BBC’s Red Button Service. Below is a list of a few of the names that have popped up in the press in the past few weeks.
