The BBC has today confirmed participation in Tel Aviv, as well as opening the submission process for songs

QUOTE
As last year, all public entries will be shortlisted by a representative panel of official UK Eurovision Fan Club (OGAE UK) members. While entries are also being sought from leading professional songwriters, with guidance from songwriter, publisher and new Music Consultant for the BBC, Greig Watts.

A final shortlist of songs, from either route of entry, will be showcased to the UK public, who will have the chance to vote for their favourite in Eurovision: You Decide on BBC Two. More details about the show will be announced later this year!

Greig Watts says: “The Eurovision Song Contest just gets bigger and better and more exciting for me each year, and I’m sure Israel will deliver another amazing contest. I’m so happy to be involved this year for the UK; it really is a dream come true, and I’m looking forward to working with the team to get the strongest possible song and result we can for the UK, like we do on the world music stage. There’s no guaranteed song-writing formula for Eurovision as each year something different wins. I’m looking for melodic songs with impact for the arena as well as on TV. Songs that instantly hit you and never leave your brain!"


Closing date for submissions is Friday 26th October

While it hasn't been confirmed, the host for YouDecide is very likely to be at MediaCity in Manchester. Given it's 6 miles away from me, I shall go the ball!

The details for this year were announced in mid-November, so there should be an announcement pretty soon.

Manchester has also been confirmed as the host city, with Mel and Måns returning as the hosts. No specific date announced yet but they’ve said it will be February.

I’m happy they’re trying to shake it up slightly and hopefully there’s more focus on the song by doing it this way.

Most likely 3 poorly written bland MoR songs that will force the public to make the significant choice of a single stubbled guy or a single waifish blonde girl singing it. No instruments on stage or anything vaguely interesting. Es ist verboten in Britannieneurovisionenzeugen.

I can’t think of a single ‘compete to sing the song’ NF that’s worked out well. It just makes it plainly obvious it’s not their song.

(Love to be wrong)

Germany 2010 had the same format. I remember some other girl singing Satellite too, and Lena had another track called Bee.

Yes, the format does have some success, "It's My Time" was similar (but I think that was just the one song if I remember correctly) and brought our best result of the past ten years. But the format also gave us Germany's "Perfect Life" in 2017 heehee.gif

Right yes, Satellite. Let’s hold out hope for a performer as charismatic as Lena then. That seems likely. biggrin.gif

Yeah to me it reads more "only three of the submitted songs were actually any good and we've already booked a NF the length of a six song show"

Although the optimist in me wants to see this as a consequence of the best song being given to a relatively inexperienced performer two years in a row and they're trying to hedge their bets.

I am starting to think there are no audience tickets now or very limited.

It is a few days before Christmas and in previous years ticket information and ticket prices etc info would of been released by now.

Anymore longer and I wont be able to go this year despite going previous years to Brighton Dome / London.

I have emailed Eurovision / BBC etc, and no replys, despite sending 3 emails between November and now.

It is really unacceptable that they have left it this late, with no exact date of the Event, no ticket information etc.

I know this is probably not the place to vent my anger, but despite everyone I have emailed have not got back to me, unsure what to do next.

It is very poor planning of BBC !
