Which one is your favourite based off first impressions? For me it's Kerrie-Anne, not keen on any of the others except for maybe Michael but that comes nowhere near close to Kerrie-Anne's song.

Don’t really get a Eurovision vibe from them.
Freaks probably more so and I prefer the girl groups version.

Kerrie-Annes video won’t play for me

What is a Eurovision vibe? There isn't a typical sound anymore and that's why we struggle because we try for something that sounds Eurovision instead of trying to have a unique sound.

1) Kerrie-Anne

3) Michael
4) Jordan
5) Anisa
6) MAID

Holly and Michael would have about the same chance as each other, but Kerrie-Anne's is the only song I'd listen to out of choice.

I think it's the complete opposite. We try too hard to find generic pop stars that would compete in today's music industry, but end up with the dregs (with all due respect) that desperately need to use this as a platform to launch their careers.

There's nothing special or unique about these songs, and all of these performers seem to fit a mould of what BBC thinks young/trendy people would like. Every act that wins Eurovision has something special and unique about them that the BBC is tone deaf to. Like, every single You Decide entry could be moulded into one competition and they'd still all be missing the mark of what eurovision is about. Fun and uniqueness. We just have no idea anymore and try to take it too seriously. Eurovision has evolved with time but its criteria of what makes a good entry still remains.

Apparently the jury picks one of each song to go through to the final round and then the public vote which of the three they want to represent the UK.

In other words we're gonna end up with Jordan's version of Freaks.
