On Friday of next week, the UK will hold their national final Eurovision: You Decide 2019. The selection includes three different songs, each performed in two ways by a total of six singers.
We want to know what you think — but we’re taking a cue from the voting format of Eurovision: You Decide.
Last week, we held our version of the BBC’s “song-off” — duels between the two versions of each song. Now in the second stage, the most popular version of each song will face a another poll, where you will get to vote for your favourite.
First, let’s take a look at the winners from the first round.
“Bigger than Us” – Michael Rice vs Holly Tandy
- Michael Rice 56.36% (1,386 votes)
- Holly Tandy 43.64% (1,073 votes)
Winner: Michael Rice
“Freaks” – Jordan Clarke vs MAID
- Jordan Clarke 71.41% (1,481 votes)
- MAID 28.59% (593 votes)
Winner: Jordan Clarke
“Sweet Lies” – Kerrie-Anne vs Anisa
- Kerrie-Anne 85.83% (1,896 votes)
- Anisa 14.17% (313 votes)
Which act should win the UK’s Eurovision You Decide 2019?
Now it’s time to vote for your favourite out of the three winners of each duel. You can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote once — so make it count!
Eurovision: You Decide 2019 will screen on Friday 8 February at 19:30 GMT. The show will be broadcast live from Dock10 in Media City UK in Salford, Greater Manchester. This takes the national final to the North West of England for the very first time.
You Decide will again be hosted by former Great British Bake Off star Mel Giedroyc and Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw. The 90-minute-long show will be broadcast live on BBC Two.
The the first round of performances will be judged by a celebrity panel, with the public televote deciding who SuRie’s successor will be.
