Make Your Own UK Eurovision Rumour With The BBC Eurovision Generator Written by on February 28, 2014 | 1 Comment

With the news that Scott Mills will be revealing the UK entrant to the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest on Monday March 3rd (via a special ‘Red Button’ show), we’re pretty sure that the BBC have decided on the singer and song for Copenhagen.

Every year names are thrown around as being perfect for our beloved Song Contest. Ideas for songs, staging, and spectacular effects are mentioned as being wonderful ideas. But who could it be for 2014? What happens if they pull out at the last minute? Who would the BBC turn to if someone gets cold feet? And with less than three days to go, can the fan community come up with any more credible rumours?

Don’t worry, the ESC Insight team are ready to lend a hand. We’ve decided to help out everyone in the United Kingdom come up with new ideas, credible rumours, and (perhaps) the perfect Eurovision combination ever! Meet ‘The BBC Eurovision Song Contest Generator‘!

Your first combination has already been generated. If you don’t like the idea, another sure-fire winning combination is just a click away. Don’t forget to post your favourites on Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the world!

    That’s hilarious! 😀
    Although I’d rather you didn’t give the BBC any strange ideas – if our 2014 entrant turns up with an inflateable John Barrowman or Sam Fox in a union flag dress, then I’m going after your server with an axe! :p
