Blue to represent Britain at Eurovision



Blue will represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, it has been confirmed. And not only will they sing the song, but they’ve written it too, with the usual ‘let the public pick the song’ stage of the Eurovision palaver being axed this year.

Given that most British Eurovision entrants are never heard of ever again after performing at the big song contest, we can only assume this is good news. Either that, or it possibly means the Blue boys are set to become the next Sugababes line-up.

This year’s big Contest will take place in Dusseldorf in May.
