LIVE – UK selects their entry for Eurovision 2017!
Tonight, from 2030 CET the United Kingdom will choose their representative for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev. For the second year in a row they’ve decided to opt for a selection show format, known as “Eurovision: You Decide,” which is once again hosted by Mel Giedroyc.
From the world-famous Hammersmith Apollo Theatre in London, six acts will showcase their vocal talents to the British public, where they, plus a panel of 8 Jury members will decide who will win the ticket to Kiev in May.
The performers battling it out tonight are as follows –
- Danyl Johnson – “Light Up The World”
- Holly Brewer – “I Wish I Loved You More”
- Lucie Jones – “Never Give Up On You”
- Nate Simpson – “What Are We Made Of”
- Olivia Garcia – “Freedom Hearts”
- Salena Mastroianni – “I Don’t Wanna Fight”
We will also be treated to a performance by 2009 Eurovision Song Contest Winner Alexander Rybak and pop-rock band The Vamps!
If you live in the UK and wish to vote, the BBC have released all the details here. If you’re outside of the UK then why not have a look at our ESCBubble poll – it remains open until the end of tonight’s show.
