Eurovision: do we have a chance this year?

Love it or hate it Eurovision is set to grace our screens again next week after a year out due to the pandemic

Due to take place 18-22 May in Rotterdam, this year we may be in with a chance.

The hopes of a 2021 win rest firmly on the shoulders of Yorkshire born multi-award winning singer songwriter James Newman.

Having written hits for Ed Sheeran, Calvin Harris, Ella Eyre Jess Glynne, Olly Murs and James Arthur to name but a few, James Newman is in a great position to have penned another, this time for himself.

The song Newman has released is Embers, which he describes as a “banger” and “full of positivity.”

“Embers is about those sparks that don’t die out.

“It’s about having that connection and something reigniting. It’s about us emerging from this rubbish time we’ve been having. It fits with the idea that Eurovision is coming back.”

Well surprise! surprise! United Kingdom NIL POINTS!!

Not because the song was dreadful or anything it was a nice song and having seen much of the opposition it was certainly not the worst performance by any stretch. As always, its political and now after Brexit the UK haven't stood a chance.

Precisely ! It seemed as if it was taken literally ie EUROPEAN SONG CONTEST. Just for mainland Europe maybe ??
Perhaps the UK should hold a rest of the world contest and exclude any entries from mainland Europe.

I won’t be watching as it goes on far too long.
I do like this song, it’s quite lively and catchy and I would like to see it do well. Unfortunately the contest has become too political and it’s no longer just about the song but do I wish James Newman all the very best of luck,
