The BBC had hoped to keep the name of its Eurovision 2014 entry a secret until tonight’s announcement on the BBC Red Button service. But, in a move proving that the various divisions of the BBC work independently, BBC News has basically confirmed the leak that newcomer Molly Smitten-Downes will sing in Copenhagen.


Information began to leak last night during the filming of the video which airs this evening. The shoot took place on North Audley Street in Mayfair–one of London’s swankiest neighborhoods. The lucky folks inside were asked not to share information about the shoot. Apparently some people missed the memo and began tweeting about Molly’s gig using her Twitter handle @mollysd before the gig even started.

Around 8 o’clock one of our bloggers saw another woman tweeting about the video shoot. She revealed the title of the song and even included some of the lyrics. Within an hour her Tweets were suddenly protected and we could no longer see them. Clearly she had been policed by somebody.

There is a bit of irony to the following tweets. Miss van Zeller calls people out for tweeting about Molly…but she was doing the same thing above and below!

We went and checked out Molly’s official Facebook page and she was broadcasting clues back on February 3. Hmm…

So is Molly really the singer? Or is this just an amazing and elaborate ruse by the BBC? Either way, it’s clear that the BBC is taking Eurovision much more seriously this year. You just need to read the blog post by Guy Freeman, executive producer of Eurovision for the BBC, to understand that.

To be honest i don’t like the process of choosing in the UK at the moment. Its not so exciting waiting to hear a song someone else has picked and liked. Even though im wishing her the best.
