United Kingdom: BBC Launches Open Selection

In 2014, Molly represented the United Kingdom with 'Children of the Universe', a mid-tempo ballad with a rousing chorus which got everyone going. Nevertheless, the result was quite disappointing as the singer/songwriter slumped to yet another mid-table result, slightly better than the ones achieved by Bonnie Tyler in 2013, and Engelbert Humperdinck in 2012.

In a surprise twist, the British Broadcasting Corporation issued a call for songs, hoping that upcoming singers and songwriters come up with a inspirational package, which will pick up votes from all the four corners of Europe. Despite all of this, the national broadcaster is also talking to a number of record labels, and platforms such as the BBC Introducing in order to come up with a strong shortlist.

Following the establishment of the shortlist, the British Broadcasting Corporation will appoint a professional panel of experts to select the next entry to represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news. BBC, the British national broadcaster, has revealed that they are accepting song submissions for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.

The German national final, Unser Song Für Dänemark, took place tonight, and after a mammoth show, the Germany people’s winners were Elaiza, who will go on to represent the country with the song, Is It Right? Eight artists each brought two songs to the national final, and after a complicated voting process during which the artists were narrowed down, and then the songs, just Elaiza and established rock group Unheilig remained.

Accordian player Yvonne, contrabass player Yvonne and lead singer Ela make up Elaiza. Whilst most of the other artists in the competition were well-known names, Elaiza are relative newcomers who came through the wildcard competition held last month to earn their place. Is It Right? was the song that won them the wildcard contest, and indeed was ultimately the song that won them the competition. Germany are directly qualified to the final as one of the “Big 5” countries, so Elaiza will be competing against Ruth Lorenzo from Spain, Molly from the United Kingdom, Twin Twin from France, Basim from Denmark and Emma from Italy on Saturday 10th May. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news.
