The Final of the Eurovision Song Contest will be taking place in Portugal (cos they won it last year) on Saturday 12 May 2018. The UK doesn’t need to go through the qualification rounds in the week before because the UK is one of the main funders/owners of the Eurovision Network. So there. The Network sells TV content to a whole range of countries not within Europe, and that’s why the Eurovision Song Contest often includes non-European countries (like Israel and Australia).
Is the UK’s entry for 2018 any good? Well… and I know I’ve said this about many failed UK entries in the past… I think we actually (really really this time, honestly) have a chance of winning. No, don’t laugh. Our song is by the elfin blonde SuRie, it’s a great Brexit relief song called ‘Storm’, it’s insanely catchy and it has some nice techno riffing. If we don’t have a strong showing with this, then I doubt we never will again.
