Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2011 (Düsseldorf, Germany)

I doubt you'd ever see the UK take it seriously.

If we did, we'd call on America and have a Snoop Dogg/Metallica Cross Over, or call on Led Zeppelin or the Spice Girls, wheel them out and have them sing for us, but we don't, so that's what you get instead; Blue.

No self respecting artist in the UK would dare play the Euro Vision song contest for fear of losing and becomming a joke or winning and being forever asscociated with the Euro Vision song contest.
That is really unfortunate, really. People like Lena and Eric Saade are really big artists in their home territories and are being sent to Eurovision as the pride and joy of the nation. The best we can do is a 7-year defunct boyband.
If we sent someone like Adele next year, or even Hurts, who are already huge in Europe, we'd be getting top 10 every time.

But I do enjoy a lot of the cheesiness, to be honest, particularly Scandinavian entries. I wouldn't want that to go.
