UK: We have the 6 songs…
Today morning, the 22nd of February, BBC Radio 2, presented the 6 songs that will participate in the show for the entry of the country in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. The presentation took part in the famous radio show of Ken Bruce.
The 6 artists and their songs are:
- Joe & Jake – You’re Not Alone
Joe and Jake are a music couple fromUK. They met at the famous show The Voice. They have a modern song with music elements from the 80’s.
- Bianca Ryan – Shine A Little Light
Love Shine a light became Shine a little light. The composers of this song are Richard Stannard and Leona Lewis. In general, the final result is not bad, but i think that the song relies on Leona’s name.
- Dulcima – When you go
Dulcima a duet which consists of Tomas Twyman and Dulcima Shoman. Α country style song with a positive aura. Not a good choice for the British Final.
- Matthew James – A Better Man
Α mid-tempo song from Matthew James. The best song so far in the British Final. Matthew James was a member of the group Bad Boys Inc.
- Darline Until Tomorrow
Another duet for the British Final. Cara και η Abby are the duet Darline and they will take part in the Final with a mid-tempo, country style song.
- Karl William Lund Miracle
The last participant, is from Sweden. Born in Liverpool and raised in London. One more mid-tempo song. He is famous in youtube. His biggest hit is the cover of Beyonce’s Halo.
This year, UK decided that its representative will be chosen through a National Final (Eurovision: You Decide). The Final show will be aired on Friday the 26th of February. In Friday’s show we will also have two quests: Måns Zelmerlöw, last year’s winner of ESC from Sweden and Katrina Leskanich the last winner of the UK.
UK took part in Eurovision for the first time in 1957. They have won the contest 5 times (1967,1969,1976,1981 and 1997) but in the last 15 years they only have one 3rd place with Jessica Garlick (2002), one 5th place with Jade Ewen (2009) and 3 last places (2003, 2008 and 2010).
