For the last two years, the UK have been trying to turn their Eurovision luck around with not a huge amount of success, but they’re sticking with their guns by choosing to once again hold their Eurovision national final, You Decide.
This year the show will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc and the winner of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, Måns Zelmerlöw. The show will be broadcast on BBC Two at 7:30pm on the 7th of February, and will take place at the Brighton Dome.
Today the six acts competing were revealed, and their songs were debuted on BBC Radio 2’s Ken Bruce Show. Here are the six acts:
Asanda – Legends (written by Christopher Wortley, Laurell Barker and Roel Rats)
Goldstone – I Feel the Love (written by Eric Lumiere, Joakim Buddee, Laura White and Roel Rats)
Jaz Ellington – You (written by Ashley Hicklin, Herman Gardarfve and Laura White)
Liam Tamne – Astronaut (written by Ashley Hicklin, Jacob Pedersen, Jeanette Bonde and Rune Braager)
RAYA – Crazy (written by Emil Rosendal Lei, Greta Salóme Stefánsdóttir and Samir Salah Elshafie)
SuRie – Storm (written by Nicole Blair, Gil Lewis and Sean Hargreaves)
To decide the winner, there will be a combination of jury and televote. Voters will be able to vote either by telephone or online.
