My first visit and its beautiful! Only one naked person on the nudist beach though. Might be because it’s JANUARY.
Brighton’s connections with Eurovision
The United Kingdom will once again use the You Decide national final to choose their Eurovision entry. BBC will be broadcasting the show live from Brighton Dome, known for hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 which saw Sweden’s ABBA win the contest. This is the first time the UK has held a national final outside of the capital city London.
Six artists will compete at You Decide, with the winner decided by a combination of professional jury and public vote. BBC will announce the six competing acts later this month.
Eurovision: You Decide was first used as the UK national selection in 2016. Joe and Jake were chosen to represent the UK at Eurovision in Stockholm, finishing 24th in the Grand Final with their song “You’re Not Alone”. Lucie Jones was chosen the following year with her song “Never Give Up On You”. She finished 15th in the Grand Final in Kyiv.
