The BBC has started for inscription for the participant who will represent the United Kingdom in 2017 in Kiev. The concept is unchanged from last year. The final candidate is chosen by the viewers in the programme Eurovision: You Decide.

Public tenders are listened to and on a so-called short list posted by a panel of members of OGAE UK. It also actively sought within the world of professional songwriters. This quest is accompanied by the Music Consultant of the BBC Hugh Goldsmith.

Good is not good enough

Goldsmith indicates to be looking to songs that are able to have a real impact on the 200 million potential viewers of the Eurovision song contest. The motto is: “good is not good enough, big is required”. Writers should not feel limited by genres; the quest is open to the very best song and style is subordinate.

Public tenders

Everyone is invited to a submission to do if he or she thinks is good enough to represent the United Kingdom in Ukraine. Editor of BBC Special Events and Formats Guy Freeman says that anyone who believes she is a fantastic song with passion have written that the hearts of millions of viewers and professional juries can conquer, sure should go and submit the number. That may incidentally through the website of the BBC.

The selection via Eurovision: You Decide last year nothing changed to the bad results of the UK Eurovision: Joe & Jake were penultimate during the grand finale. Wait and see what 2017 for the country.
