For the Eurovision Song Contest fans here in the United Kingdom yesterday, the news came that we all wanted. Ladies and gentlemen, Eurovision: You Decide is back!!!
Last year, the format was introduced after a number of internal selections, with Joe and Jake selected with “Your Not Alone”. Before we look ahead to 2017, lets remind ourselves of this year’s entry from Stockholm.
This year, the BBC is going bigger and better. Eurovision: You Decide has moved to the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith – the venue for Eurovision’s Greatest Hits last year. Also, the National Final has been promoted from BBC Four to BBC Two.
Mel Giedroyc will be back at 19:30GMT on Friday 27th January to oversee the proceedings. A panel of three to be named experts will join Mel on the night. Ken Bruce will reveal all six songs on his Radio 2 show on Monday 23rd January.
Tickets went on sale yesterday and are available through Eventim UK.
