EUROVISION NEWS: BBC Shakes Up National Selection For Eurovision 2019

It’s All Change In Salford

By Steve McSteveface

Forget Brexit, this is the biggest change that will happen in the UK next year in Europe as far as I am concerned.

Eurovision: You Decide will be screened in February 2019, live from Salford with hosts Mel Giedroyc and Måns Zelmerlöw. Yeah that’s pretty much the same as last year but here’s the twist…

Three songs will each be performed in two different styles by two different artists, with one act from each pair going through to a final public vote.

This time, an international jury will choose the three songs and then give viewers a choice of different ways they could be performed, before the vote to pick the winner.

Sound confusing? Yeah, I’m not quite sure how this will work either but it sounds similar to what Germany did in 2017 and they could only come up with this…

It finished in 25th place so let’s hope the UK can do better!

What do you think of this overhaul in the UK selection process?
