    No, we don't. It turns out that they are ALL X Factor rejects. (I only remember Danyl) None of them won the competition, yet the BBC expect them to go and win Eurovision? I don't think so.

    I'm quite confident the UK will do well this year as there isn't anything calamitous on the horizon to damage our standing in Europe.

    I liked last years song but it still failed to pick up the public vote.

    I'm half-cynically wondering whether they're thinking "Oh, Alexadra Burke eg., costs money and is too good for this tripe. The BBC doesn't actually want to spend money on Eurovision and end up like Irish TV!"
