I like Austria, this possibly could be a good year. Was starting to think it would be a naff year early on

I don't think he's on the list of likely representatives for Italy but the just announced winner of "junior" San Remo would be perfect and it's less than 3 minutes in length.

Niko's on first tomorrow night.....probably to get it over and done with so as not to scare too many viewers away.PeR have the pimp slot with Here we Go.

Luke announced that Kym Marsh from Girls Aloud is likely to be the UK act. He won't live that one down for a while.
What if it is Kym Marsh? Nothing would surprise me with the BBC

That is so much better than any of the songs offered by RAI's 3 choices.

I didn't watch Austria but I love the winner. I'll listen again when I'm sober, maybe it won't sound as good

I reckon we should get our 2004 junior eurovision entry to represent us with a similar song. It's stunning

Has anyone seen the Wikipedia page. I know it's just speculation and it's Wikipedia, but it's a good enough guess...but how awesome would Olly Murs, Taylor Swift (even though she's American) or Rita Ora be?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_...g_Contest_2013

EDIT: Olly is performing on the last show of Graham Nortan which is on March 1, which is traditionally the show the act performs on and also has a break in his tour from April 4 until June 2. Hmmmmm? YOU READ IT HERE FIRST FOLKS

Eurovision doesn't need pure trash like Rita Ora ruining it...didn't know she tried to represent the uk in 2009 though.
Speaks volumes that she didn't even make it as far as the NF stage.

She pulled out of it because she felt that she "wasn't ready yet"

Shame I missed Austria, pleased Shine won, just hope they tweak the song so it sounds a little bit less repetitive before May.

Yes, apparently she was too orangey for us crows...

(guesses that most people here won't get the reference, doesn't care...)

Loving the Austrian song. One of my faves so far but I think it might be a borderline qualifier.

Olly has said he'd do it saying that it's all politics is guff for poor songs and performances

I have a feeling they could announce the lot live on the Graham Norton 7 hour chat show.

That creepy Romanian opera singer has released his song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzSIratxJfc

Hmm, the Austria song is okay, nothing earth shattering and I think it might get lost in the SF and juust miss out qualifying, but a million times better than Trackshittaz last year. Still think it should have been Yela though .

On his radio show, apparently. Twitter seems to match up.
