Engelbert Humperdinck

Yes, ol' Engelbert was appointed as the representative of the UK for the upcoming contest. I don't say "old" lightly; he is 76, after all. But he is an experienced performer who can add a good dose of professionalism to a well-written ballad on the night. I think it interesting the BBC moved away from their recent contest format and simply announced the performer and song. It seems they're doing everything "old-school" this year!

PS. Engelbert may not be that young, but the Russian grannies are even older still...

Oh for Pete's sake! That was just plain boring!I notice it has the same folksy tune that most of the Eurovision songs seem to have. Well maybe, just maybe the UK won't come in dead last this year.
