It’s almost unbelievable. The BBC have not only trusted the United Kingdom viewing public to select their entry for Stockholm but they’ve actually managed to get together six acts for a national final! Is it 2010? Have we gone back in time?

Despite having had the songs available since Monday, during Ken Bruce’s show on Radio 2, we have no context of ability to sing or perform live. Tonight is effectively the litmus paper for all the artists in a live setting with these songs.
How will they fare? Who will win? Will any of them be able to sing/perform live?
Wivian Kristiansen, Simon Wells and Nathan Waddell will be taking you through tonight’s show on the live blog below as well as on Twitter @escXtra. Please do get in touch with us with your thoughts, we’ll be using the official show hashtags #bbceurovision and #EurovisionUK.
Viewers in the UK can vote during the show via several methods, including for free online if you have a BBC ID!
So, have you been under a rock? Have you missed the list of participants? Here’s the entry list for tonight’s show:
- Joe & Jake: “You’re Not Alone”
- Bianca: “Shine a Little Light”
- Dulcima: “When You Go”
- Matthew James: “A Better Man”
- Darline: “Until Tomorrow”
- Karl William Lund: “Miracle”
