This is actually fairly standard procedure for filming a Studio-based TV show, anyone who's ever gone to go see Strictly being filmed will tell you the same. And all due respect Jamie, the BBC aren't obligated to do anything other than create a good TV show, they aren't obligated to cater to your every need and wish!

So this is the JOWST song that was rejected.



The sudden realisation that maybe for all these years the BBC HAVE, been picking the best of what they get given after all.

Idk though I can't see them having nobodies/an XF reject then just randomly having Tulisa laugh.gif


Yeah I am really doubtful of her being a contestant. I know her career is in a place where she doesnít have much to lose but Eurovision just doesnít feel very her.

Free tickets with 2 - 3 months notice fair enough
Free tickets with 7 days notice and having to get time off work from your boss and organise hotel and transport is different.

Havent a Problem bbc offering free tickets itís just the fact that 7 days notice if accepted is bad.

Itís okay if you donít work I guess.

Oh get a FUCKING grip of yourself child.

It's a TV show. The only thing that matters is that we get a good representative out of it. Who honestly gives a flying f*** about where it's filmed or how many are in the audience. They're clearly going for a show with higher production values that will look great for the end viewer and maybe drive more viewers towards it so that more people buy into the process and start giving a f*** about who we send - giving the team a bigger platform and allowing them to pull in artists with more cache and of a bigger calibre.

Use your two brain cells and think of the long game.

And the last two shows in theatres have had really dodgy sound mixes - I'd expect a much more consistent sound quality in an actual TV studio.

I assume that the costs to the BBC of staging it at Media City are lower than the costs of using the Brighton Dome or Kentish Town Forum (or the Town and Country Club for us oldies). Therefore, they are better able to make it free. That said, the seven-day notice period does make it more difficult for people outside the immediate area.

The number of tickets issued for free events is normally more than the number of places available, just to be sure the place is full. Therefore, anyone staying overnight needs to be there early to avoid a wasted trip.

My email complaint to BBC emailed as follows:
Hi there I Am writing in reference to this years BBC Eurovision 2019 You Decide competition show.

Last year me and my partner travelled from Wales to Brighton for the 2018 completion booked our hotel and train travel and ticket for the event in December 2017 ready for February 2018.

This year BBC have left it to less than a month away to reveal 1/ the date and 2/ that it will be free tickets this time and on a ballot basis and those successful will know 7 days in advance if the event which even if they find out sooner than this time will be getting charged full fare train fares and hotel prices as not been able to book in advance and no doubt will be relying on generous managers for time off with such short notice whilst those work for BBC the hosts the production team have no such problem those wanting to go have to go through this farce.

I am not happy with this and why when itís been successful over the last 3 years has BBC took this decision to have less fans in the audience. I Wish the Eurovision team success but unfortunately I am sceptical and wonder if you may just have empty seats on the night.

I look forward to hearing from you.


My response from bbc today is as follows:

Dear..

Reference CAS...

Thank you for contacting us in relation to the upcoming recording of 'Eurovision: You Decide'.

I understand you are unhappy with the date chosen to inform audience members if they have been successful in receiving tickets as you feel it is too short notice.

We are sorry to learn of your disappointment about this. We have to plan our productions based on countless practical considerations not least the limited resources we have at our disposal to work within, thus we can't offer everything that every individual might ideally like, and indeed due to on-going budget cuts and cost savings we can't necessarily maintain what has been done in previous years. And the bottom line is that we really can't do so on the basis of how train and hotel operators choose to charge or how employers handle staff leave requests.

We do value your feedback about this. All complaints are sent to senior management and Iíve included your points in our overnight report. These reports are among the most widely read sources of feedback in the BBC and ensures that your concerns have been seen by the right people quickly. This helps inform their decisions about current and future content.

Thank you once again for getting in touch.




Kind regards

when they sent Legends last year, it made me think that the BBC do give the slightest of shits at this old game. So, I will treat 2019 with the ever open mind I always do. I genuinely think the BBC is something we should nourish as best as we can especially on this political shitstorm but I’m reluctantly in agreement with some that perhaps Eurovision should be managed elsewhere...?
