I predict a top 5 finish for the UK in this year’s Eurovision (26 May, from Baku). Engelbert Humperdink rolls back the years with a melancholic and haunting ballad. His voice is all there, the tune is deceptively simple, memorable and meaningful (with a simple guitar accompaniment, and orchestral violins in the background) and Arlene Phillips will be staging our entry! We can’t lose! No, really, we can’t lose – the UK is one of the funding countries for the event, so we are never relegated, you see.
Apparently, the ever youthful Engelbert has toured all over Europe in the last year or so. He’s been wooing and wowing the crowds, so we could run away with it. Check out the video here:
