Yesterday, as part of Pride in London 2015, Blue treated their fans to a live set on the main stage in Trafalgar Square. One of the most successful British boy bands of all time, they reprised some of their greatest hits including “All Rise” and “One Love”, and sang new material from their most recent album “Colours”. Ahead of their set wiwibloggs slipped backstage and asked the band about their new album and, of course, their Eurovision 2011 song “I Can”.
“It was a great campaign for us,” Duncan James says. “We got to come back in the industry because of Eurovision.”
Lee Ryan was as effusive: “That song did really well for us and we still get a lot of love for it.”
Would they consider returning to the Eurovision stage on behalf of the UK? “I think we might do,” James says. “Who knows?”
Simon Webbe says that he would not compete solo at the contest: “I don’t think so. I don’t think I’d ever be asked and it’s not something I’d want to do without the boys…I wouldn’t want to share it with anybody else.”
