#EUROVISION IRELAND REVIEWS: Great British Song Contest 1997
It’s true that the United Kingdom can win the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s also true that that last win was 24 years ago. We at Eurovision Ireland review the Great British Song Contest that yielded that eventual winner in Dublin.
Did the right song win, or should one of the other three songs – one written by an Oscar winner – have carried the UK’s flag instead?
Watch our review of the four songs by clicking on the link. Go on, you know you want to.
If you want to relive the 1997 national final, you can watch it in all its glory below.
Sam Blue (at 3.08), Joanne May (at 7.24), Do Re Mi feat. Kerry (at 12.06), and Katrina & The Waves (at 16.20).
