Eurovision entry 2011 revealed

Boyband Blue will reunite to perform at this year's musical show, but do YOU think they'll earn us any points?

Good or bad (and lets face it, it’s usually bad) the Eurovision Song Contest is always one of the most talked about musical events of the year. And now this years entry has finally been revealed – as nineties boy band, Blue.

In an effort to avoid yet another humiliating loss, this year’s entry was picked by the BBC behind closed doors, rather than being chosen by the public in a telephone vote.

And their act of choice? The reformed One Love singers, who are back with a special song, titled, I Can.

The boys reportedly fought off competition from X Factor duo Jedward to land the place as the country’s official entry, and are thrilled with their new role.

‘I’ve always wanted to represent my country so this is a truly exciting experience for Blue,’ Simon Webb said of the competition yesterday.

But it seems not everyone is so convinced. Earlier today, the band’s ex-manager Daniel Glatman slammed their decision to appear on the show.

‘They will have to win. Anything less and their reputation would be in tatters,’ he told the Press Association.

‘It is the equivalent of Lewis Hamilton entering a go-kart race – he will be the strong favourite but there is also the possibility he could lose. So why risk it?’

Oh dear.

What do you think of Blue as our entry of choice at this year’s Eurovision? Will they win us any points? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
