When the BBC introduced us to Molly Smitten-Downes and her song “Children of the Universe”, y’all blew it up on Twitter. “Amazing”, “the best UK entry ever”, “young and fresh and now”—the love would not stop flowing. Molly’s good fortune continues. She has been shortlisted for a Glastonbury Emerging Talent Award. She’s currently in fourth place in our Eurovision 2014 poll. And she has stomped her way into eighth place in our search for Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2014.

We know you guys need to see the MSD live and now you have your chance. Our friends at the London Eurovision Party have confirmed that Molly will be the headline act on April 13. Power to the people…uh, oh, oh, oh….

Oh… I think I’m going to cry 🙁 🙁

I’m not pathetic darling, I have just give my opinion. Can you live with differents points of view??

Of course Pastora Soler is not a beautiful girl. But, sadly for you, Ruth is prettier than Molly LOL. However, the most beautiful girl this year IN MY OPINION is the Irish girl.

The best UK entry in the past 10 or even 15 years. Only the ones by Jessica Garlick, Blue and Jade Ewen are comparable when it comes to quality.

Oh what I wouldn’t give to have the chance to be at a show like that, at least once! (I am one of the “aliens” from halfway across the planet who love the ESC madly though we are not European, hehe).
Dance on, lad… and kudos to your boss 🙂

Surely this will be wildly appreciated. I mean, not only the UK, but the whole of the “Big 5” taking it so seriously in recent years gives us hope that a Song Festival is still a major event, which should rekindle everybody’s love.
Well, done, UK! And best to Molly and everyone involved 🙂

Hi Stacey – Um………………it is……………depends what you read and where of course. You are right though they still have not updated the list, but they have posted a story about Molly this morning. The good thing is her fans will get a chance to see her perform her song live in London.

The main talking point here is Scott Fitzgerald is taking part. This is awesome news as he is one great ambassador for the UK….if only that French-Canadian wench never spanked him into second place by a single point.

Old news, but still good news. With the UK taking part in this and the “Eurovision in Concert” in Amsterdam on 5th April, this shows the BBC are serious about winning this year. Molly also tells us on Twitter that a European Tour is planned as well. So the BBC definitely want the 60th ESC in London 2015. Everyone and anyone will be welcome and after the 2012 Olympics, you know the UK can put on a show and a party. 16 years in the wilderness could this year be UK’s year? Perhaps when it is your turn, it’s your… Read more »
