Default Eurovision: BBC scraps public vote and TV show to choose UK song

The BBC is overhauling how the UK act for the Eurovision song contest is selected, scrapping the public vote in favour of teaming up with a record label to choose the singer and the song.

A step in the right direction but I fear it'll be an incredibly safe label decision and we'll still end up sending someone blander than Mollie King.

A better plan.
However I doubt it will make much difference.
Unless a big name could ever be persuaded to enter.

Who would though.

It wouldn't matter if Adele or Ed sheeran represented us... Europe would still not vote for the United Kingdom

of course they will vote for something crowdpleasing, modern

i hope BBC knows what ''modern music'' is

but then again, they should first give more artistic freedom to those who want to take part for UK at eurovision

the only one of those I could've seen performing well (ie "mid table at least") was Olivia tbh... Asanda sounded awful live, couldn't make out a word she was singing. Kerrie-Anne was hard to call, but should've won over Michael. Bianca was pretty bad.

The BBC love him and had him hosting their last 3 Eurovision programmes and he has said he wants to represent the UK so I would say its highly likely

Plus he has a big fan base within Europe which will appeal to the BBC

I mean, we’re known for not really taking Eurovision seriously as it is, do we really need or want to be the desperate country that pays a winner to represent us? I don’t think he’d risk the humiliating defeat

We just need a decent song with a decent singer/performer and let them run with it, none of the ‘everyone love everyone! ’ crap we’ve relied on for the past few years

It is mildly exciting news and it is a good step in the right direction but I’m not holding my breath bc I just know they’ll be like ‘here’s KEZZA KATONA!!!’
