The UK is one of the most successful countries to perform at Eurovision, having won the contest five times. However, in recent years the UK has struggled to put forth a winning song, and has only made the top ten once in the past ten years.
What will 2015 bring this former powerhouse? Are they performing a standard ballad or doing something a little different?
They’re doing something really different! Take a look and listen to Electro Velvet, who are representing the UK with their song I’m Still In Love With You.
EDM Jazz. Now, that’s different! This is a ridiculously fun song with a catchy beat. Bianca Nicholas is gorgeous and has the pipes to sing this kind of amped-up jazz. Alex Larke is really more of a performer than a singer. He’s fun to watch, but his voice isn’t quite up to par. Regardless, they are definitely going to stand out! I do hope they keep the jazzy rave vibe for the finale performance. This year’s Eurovision desperately needs some wacky moments of memorable fun. Neon glowing flappers fits the bill nicely!
Thank you UK and Electro Velvet! Ballad weary voters might very well vault you into the top ten this year.
