Well if we can’t have Adele.
The UK is a shoo-in for finishing Top 25 this year I reckon.

I really wish we were the country that stopped the trend of MOTR ballads.
Sadly we’re not.
As BB minions are probably aware, I’m on The Common Denominator this Monday (11 March) at 3:30pm, Channel 4.
We’re now in the digital age and, as such, I don’t actually have a way of recording the show. Would someone be able to record the show, and send me a copy? I’d really appreciate it. Let me know!
I’ll set up the Sky+.
Oh, and fans of Accumulate! will recognise my shirt. (Spoiler!)
There appears to be a pilot filming at TVC this evening, and basically loads of people I know are involved and none of them have the slightest idea what it actually is.
Very probably unrelated to this, is there any chance that Who’s Asking? (as discussed on Fifty50, and as listed on the audience web sites as being recorded at the end of March) might be a UK version of that Italian (??) format people were talking about months and months ago where the endgame is to guess the identity of a mystery personality for €500,000?
*scratches head some more in an attempt to pay more attention*
I would be very surprised if that was the case, it’d probably be better calling it Guess Who?
Who’s Asking is recording Good Friday, according to Lost in TV.
It is very, very definitely not the format you describe.
On the substantive post, a question they won’t be asking in late May: “What’s Cardiff like at this time of year?”
Somehow simultaneously sunny and strangely cold, is the answer the OC team know too well.
It’s all relative because the buzz on the Eurovision fanwires is that with Cascada from Germany selected, which is making NDR search for suitable locations for 2014 – I can see the BBC’s logic of throwing an OAP into the lions den of Eurovision to break up the endless treadmill of slick, 20 somethings belting out the toons..
..if you have a decent song to back it up – and this is really dreadful.
No key change, almost the same instrumentation all the way through, and sung by someone who really is doing it for the money, and less about the fact 300 million will be watching in mid-May.
The UK entry would be a reasonable track 7 on a cd (ok album track but not good enough for a single release) but in terms of a massive arena perfomance song, it’s the audio equivalent of treading custard.
Which is a huge problem for a Eurovision entry, really, but at least it’s not an embarrassment like we’ve entered some years. Which doesn’t mean it will get into the mid-table, mind; it’s almost entirely unremarkable which means it’s almost entirely unmemorable.
I haven’t listened to it, as I want to listen to it for the first time on the night along with all the other songs. If it’s sufficiently different from other songs (expect an influx of electro pop based upon last year’s Euphoria), then it might stand out. You never know (although we’re the UK. we won’t do well)
What do people reckon on a Bothers Bar Eurovision Live Commentary Special?
Well I’ll be at a party, but you lot knock yourselves out!
I was actually going to ask this when we next do the SdR commentary special. That said, we’d probably want to get some people who know something about music (like maybe David Howell) in to provide real content.
Tom Scott’s one was good last year.
