The UK is back with a national final! The BBC has probably seen that their direct nominations have not been successful enough. The UK has been one of the most successful countries in the ESC in history, but recently the interest has decreased massively, as the other countries e.g. Sweden have taken a lead in contemporary music.
Now six candidates will have the chance to qualify for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. All of the six entries are radio friendly and easy to listen to and there is no gimmick song like last year. Let’s hope the UK will find the best song.

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
