It has been many years since United Kingdom have won the Eurovision song contest and i’m not here to debate the current voting process, but if we actually had a good song, we could be in with a chance of winning.
For those of you that know me, will know that I am a BIG fan of Eurovision.
Having been brought up on the show as a young child, it was almost the only television in the 60’s and 70’s that my parents could watch that made them feel still connected to Italy.
So here’s my plan, to kick things off and feel free to add, comment, criticise:
We need a song that represents all parts of UK. So it has to include England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
So all we need is a song that embraces a Welsh choir singing, with bagpipes, Irish flute performed with some very royal pomp and ceremony.
As the stage is limited to numbers of performers, we can use the same tech that Sweden had this year to make it look like lots of people on stage, but was actually a hologram of sorts.
What say you?
But then, we sometimes have to do crazy stuff to have a chance of winning. Ask Usain Bolt.
