The UK final will be on Friday 26th February. Mel Giedroyc is hosting.
Hosted live from The O2 Forum Kentish Town by self-confessed Eurovision fan Mel Giedroyc, the 90 minute UK Eurovision extravaganza will feature performances by the six competing acts, as well as special musical guests and a look at what makes a memorable Eurovision winner.
The BBC recognises that the fan community is a very important element of the Eurovision Song Contest, therefore invited the UK branch of the OGAE to assist in the shortlisting of the entries sent in by the public. The OGAE is the largest independent Eurovision fan club in the world and its UK branch has around 1,000 members.
i.e. don’t blame us if it goes wrong, blame the fans.
Interested to see who will get to host the semi-finals in May now they’re on BBC Four and not youth-oriented BBC Three – Giedroyc? Scott Mills? The return of Paddy O’Connell? Others?
