Eurovision 2016 is almost upon us and for this first time in a few years the UK has decided to allow the public to vote for the entry. The songs were revealed on Radio 2 today with the live final on Friday! Here’s my initial thoughts on all six songs.
Joe and Jake – “You’re Not Alone”
Previous Voice UK participants team up to try to represent their country…
Not a bad song by a couple of young guys who wouldn’t look out-of-place in One Direction. For the first song offering it seems like the UK might actually be getting it right this year.
Bianca – “Shine A Little Light”
Co written by Leona Lewis, a song title that harks back to the last UK winning song and quite frankly – an AWESOME song!
Dulcima – “When You Go”
A bouncy song from a cool male/female – these guys put Electro Velvet very much to shame!
Matthew James – “A Better Man”
Matthew used to be in the boyband Bad Boys Inc and I’m pleased he has made a return but sorry – this song is dull!
Darline – “Until Tomorrow”
A refreshing country pop duo which isn’t bad but it just doesn’t have that “something”
Karl William Lund – “Miracle”
29 year old singer/songwriter from Liverpool ticks ALL the boxes for a winning Eurovison song! THIS. IS. IT!
Now – it’s up to the United Kingdom to vote for their favourite on Friday. Let’s make a good decision and make 2016 the year the UK win!
