To be honest whoever is selected might not get to perform in Rotterdam as I am not sure if the contest will go ahead due to Cornovirus.

I’m going with John Newman.

A song of his, possibly our Eurovision entry, has surfaced this afternoon. It’s called ‘One Last Breath’.

And here is that song: https://www.youradio.cz/artists/james-newman

Worth checking out ESC Forum, it's like the Masked Singer clues on there at the moment! This poster reckons it's this song because the artwork for that song matches a poster the BBC have previously put up.

Not a bad song but as its 28 seconds short something is missing from it.
Not probably a song destined to achieve better than what Blue got through.
And heavily hyping the brother of someone famous is a bit weird.

We're doomed,doomed I tells ya.

It's not until May so hopefully the virus could be contained by then

Plus there are currently no cases confirmed by the hosts over in the Netherlands.

Decent song and he seems a lovely guy. Worried by his obvious lack of live performing experience, there was a lot of chat on the Ken Bruce interview about the warm-up 'gigs' and getting the experience. That's a worry.

The song was only written last month. Makes you wonder what the process at BMG was? All the hype about having a whole roster of artists to pick from yet the song is only a few weeks old! Also, didn't the BBC talk about our great chances at Eurovision at the turn of the year? Were James and his team only approached after they failed to secure any other artist? Makes you wonder at what point the BBC was presented with the song and was it a fait acompli?
