Eurovision Song Contest

The longest-running annual international song competition is back, with the semi-final on 10th May and the live final on Saturday 14th.

Performing this year for the UK is the new musical duo Joe and Jake. Their debut track, You’re Not Alone, led pair to win the BBC National Final Eurovision, making them the first UK entry in six years to be selected by the UK public.

Previous winners of the Eurovision Song Contest include notable artists such as ABBA (Sweden 1974 winner) and Céline Dion (Switzerland 1988 winner).

Overall, the UK has won five times and finished runner up fifteen times. Last year, the UK came 24th with a mere 5 points. Let’s hope we can do better this year.

Nil pointers, animals and songs like Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley, this is not a show to be missed.

Come Together!
