Eurovision 2011

As an avid Eurovision fan we may just have a chance this year (block voting permitting).
Blue to represent UK at Eurovision Song Contest
Quote
The group formed in 2000 and since then have sold more than 13 million records, won two Brit Awards and had three number one singles.

This all seems to have happened behind closed doors - whatever happened to A Song For Europe and the public vote?
Then again the public voted for Josh Dubovie last year after being rejected for X-Factor and then Britain's Got Talent  Cheesy

Re: Eurovision 2011

As soon as I saw that news article I tried to find somewhere online that would let me bet for the UK to win Eurovision this year  Embarrassed We can't lose with a band of Blues calibre playing for us, I'm sure they have millions of fans all around Europe and the song should be decent too.

Re: Eurovision 2011

I thought the point of the Eurovision was that the contestants were not already famous artists?
Apart from that, Oh great, another round of political vote fixing.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

And I think Sandie Shaw was well known before she sang in the contest.

May be wrong, but didn't Lulu do the Eurovision as well?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
