After a string of disappointing results in Eurovision, British superstars James Blunt and Robbie Williams may prove to be the United Kingdom’s big hopes in the future.
Waiting for BBC bosses to pick up the phone
James Blunt says he would be interested in representing his country in Eurovision.
“England never wins and I’m really just waiting for them to call me because I’m here to fix this.”
Apparently Blunt isn’t a big fan of the entries in recent years. He goes as far as calling the United Kingdom’s participation ‘sad’. The “You’re Beautiful” singer hints that the country will once more be victorious if he gets the chance.
Scott Mills: He said he was considering it
Meanwhile, Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills has another option in mind. He claims that Robbie Williams has been asked about a possible Eurovision participation. Surprisingly enough, the international superstar may be considering it.
“He is a fan and I don’t think he was joking. He’d be awesome as he’s an amazing performer.”
Furthermore, Mills notes that an artist on Williams’ level would open the floodgates to have other famous British acts represent their country.
“All it would take is for one big performer or person like him for other stars to go, ‘OK, I’m doing it’ to immediately change the perception of Eurovision.”
United Kingdom in Eurovision
United Kingdom hasn’t won the contest since 1997. In addition, their last top 10 placement was in 2009, despite being pre-contest favorites in 2011 with Blue and in 2014 with Molly.
This year’s artist SuRie received a lot of love from fans and the general public after following through with her performance even though a stage invader interrupted it.
Would you be interested in seeing Robbie Williams and James Blunt in the contest? Do you have any other artists on top of your wish list?
