Up next is the United Kingdom, one of the most successful countries in Eurovision history. Since 1957 they have won 5 competitions and only started doing poorly in recent years receiving last place in 2003, 2008 and 2010; only once ever getting nul points in 2003. Not only that, but until 1998, the UK had only twice finished outside the top 10! Since then they have been usually been in the bottom 10.
This year they are sending Electro Velvet who will be singing Still in Love With You in hopes of reliving their glory days. Electro Velvet is a fairly new group and consists of the artists Alex Larke and Bianca Nicholas. Bianca has been on both the X Factor and The Voice UK while Alex has a less of a history. Let’s hear their song!
This song… is epic. There is little I can find wrong with it. The beat takes me back, but has a nice euro pop twist to it. I can’t wait to see the performance for this song. Although I personally love it, it seems it gets mixed reviews in Europe. Some are saying the lyrics are borderline mysogonistic and others are raving about it. Until we see the live performance and gage the audience reaction, it’ll be hard to see what happens.
