It’s Josh for the UK in Eurovision 2010
Tonight on BBC1 the voting public selected their choice to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Norway in May. Last year the song was written by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber. This year there is a collaboration between Pete Waterman and Mike Stock of Stock, Aitken and Waterman fame. They have come up with a song called ” That Sounds Good to Me”. As you would expect from two successful pop writers, the song is catchy and inoffensive.
Tonight six contestants sang a variety of pop songs before Pete Waterman eliminated three entries, leaving three to face the public vote. The finalists were two boys, Alexis and Josh, and a girl called Esma. She unfortunately managed to forget her words in the middle of her performance when the three took it in turns to sing the UK’s Eurovision entry. In my opinion Josh Dubovie was by far the best performance, with Alexis struggling to reach the highest notes. Josh therefore deserved his final victory to represent the UK. His performance was effortless and should improve with repeated performance over the next few months.
I don’t think we have a winning song but it should come well inside the top half of the contest.
