In a couple of hours, the British Broadcasting Corporation will officially present the entry which will represent the United Kingdom in this years’ edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. According to several sources, including individuals who were present during the recording of the programme with Scott Mills, responsible for commentating during the semi-final of the prestigious music event, the artist will be none other than Molly Smith-Downes.

After what feels like an eternity. Scott Mills is ready to unveil a long awaited UK entry to the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. Without further ado as I am sure all fan sites are currently updating like crazy. A new artist Molly Smitten-Downes with the song Children of the Universe. A kind of casual hippy song, I would imagine people hearing at a Friends of the Earth exposé. The programme itself was well staged and it looks like the BBC have spent a fair bit revamping the studio. Molly has a decent voice but the song is a bit underwhelming. I am honestly a bit unsure of what to make of it. It is not a bad song but a long way off great.

It is very repetitive and would say it’s more talking than singing. I don’t see this translating well on to the stage in Copenhagen and I very much doubt the UK will be hosting the contest in 2015. The performance was good and I didn’t hear any bad notes, but I would say an easily forgettable song. A tad disappointed the hype was certainly over estimated and fell well short of my expectations, given the number of excellent artists that have emerged from BBC Introducing. You can see a YouTube video below and we would welcome your comments. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news about the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.
