I’m seriously worried that crusty old Andrew Lloyd Weber will join the U.K. representative Jade Ewen on stage in Moscow.
“I love working with Andrew,” Ewen told Eurovision TV. “He’s very passionate about music and that’s what we have in common.”
“Hopefully he’ll join me in Moscow, he hasn’t confirmed anything yet but I’d love him to be there because I think it’d help.”
Help?? He’s only going to scare children in the audience. He already inserted himself into Jade’s official Eurovision video. This might explain why she looks somewhat constipated while hitting the high notes. You would too if some wrinkly old man was banging on the piano behind you. It’s Jade’s time, Andrew, not yours!
Seriously, I don’t know why the UK thinks Andrew Lloyd Webber’s name can bolster the UK’s placement. Eastern Europeans would respond better to the bloody Cheeky Girls.
With or without Andrew, Jade looks set to bring home Britain’s best finish in years. She’s been performing at preview events throughout Europe, including a recent one in Amsterdam. Word has it she’s been stealing the show. Listen below as Dutch fans sing along:
Along with Malta’s Chiara, Jade is fielding one of the few memorable slow songs.
What do you think? Does Jade have a chance?
