I said Maybe. With the current selection process it's extremely unlikely but if they ever decide to take this seriously things may change drastically.

I mean there's no sign the contest is gonna end any time soon and it just about garners enough interest to justify the money we spend so it's a little bit of a stretch to say never! It entirely depends on what we send, we seem the get the right idea and then go back on ourselves on a yearly basis and it's seen as a stigma amongst the bigger home grown artists so it's an issue and I feel a better known artist is really the right way (and YES we also don't have as reliable neighbours as others, but as has been said time and time again, if you have a wide appealing song, that doesn't matter).

Forever is such a long time, I can see UK winning in 2035 if the contest still exists

I said maybe, I wouldn't go as far as never because I don't buy into all this "everyone hates us we'll flop even if Adele did Eurovision for us!1!1" but it feels a stretch to say yes at the same time laugh.gif I think any country can win with the right song, I mean look at Austria who hadn't won in nearly 50 years and then pulled it off with Conchita. I think it's just that we don't ever click that totally right song, we've had great performers with strong ballads in Lucie and Jade which ofc both did well, particularly Jade. And Blue was a great contemporary pop song, without being generic bottom few fodder. But Eurovision is still a bit of a joke here so I think it's difficult for everything to fall into place.

They could next win in 2019, or 2039, possibly never. As long as they continue with their half-arsed selection process, a win is only inevitable by accident - like Portugal.

I'd say the chances of us winning again are very very small. It's more likely that the contest will end or we will drop out before we get a proper chance to win.

I'm going with a yes. I don't think the BBC will aim for a win for another 5 or 6 years at least, but once that point is reached, especially if we don't have another top 10 before that, I think questions will really begin to be asked about attempting to do at least well in the competition. When we first started doing badly, post-Imaani, it was a bit of a national embarrassment, at this point we're in 'numbness' mode, but at some point we will get that competitive bug back.

No, never. All Europe hates us so we could have the best song ever and we still wouldn't win.

I don't understand why brits think Europe hates UK?

Every country in Europe can win with a good or interesting song... even San Marino.

Voted yes

No don't send someone well known, that haven't worked for you before and it won't help you unless it's a high quality song.

I think rather than maybe being cheap and sending famous faces get quality producers to produce the song. Both Lucie and SuRie can sing but it's the songs that are the problem. Especially "Storm" which just sounds like an unfinished demo of the final result.

Very unlikely that we'll win in the next few years although it could happen one day.
