Eurovision: You Decide
After many years of a lack of public involvement in choosing the United Kingdom Eurovision entry, it's now up to you, the public to decide who will represent us in Stockholm in May 2016. The event, scheduled for Friday 26 February, 20:30 CET, will take place at the O2 Forum in Kentish Town in London. It will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc, a huge fan of Eurovision herself. The show will include a panel of guests, who will comment on the entries, but the the result will be determined solely by televoting.
6 acts have been chosen to represent the United Kingdom in this year's contest. It is the first time in six years that such a selection has been broadcast in the United Kingdom and the public are buzzing.
Katrina and the Waves, who won the Eurovision for the United Kingdom in 1997 with "Love Shine a Light" will also perform at the glorious event, hoping to add a little bit of luck to the proceedings.
The announcement of which 6 acts are in the running took place on Monday 22 February on Ken Bruce's Radio 2 show.
- 1967: Sandie Shaw - "Puppet On A String"
- 1969: Lulu - "Boom Bang-a-bang"
- 1976: Brotherhood of Man - "Save Your Kisses For Me"
- 1981: Bucks Fizz - "Making Your Mind Up"
- 1997: Katrina and The Waves - "Love Shine A Light"
United Kingdom is a member of "Big 5", so they don't have to go through the Semi-final qualifications, but are automatically qualified for the Grand Finals.
