They’re the drag-tastic trio who have long spoken of their dream to represent the UK at Eurovision. Now the Frock Destroyers have again hinted at possible Eurovision involvement, this time on the BBC’s New Year’s Eve show.

The stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK made an appearance on the BBC’s special The Big New Year’s In, hosted by Paddy McGuinness. After the glamorous trio — made up of Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea and Divina de Campo — performed a medley of 2021 pop hits, host Paddy asked them what their plans were for 2021. Divina De Campo told him:

“Well, fingers crossed, all being well, we’ll be on a world tour with FROCK4LIFE. And who knows — maybe Eurovision?”

In November 2019 — following the success of their debut single “Break Up Bye Bye” — the trio shared their Eurovision hopes on social media. And it seems that dream hasn’t died.

An online petition set up to support the Frock Destroyers for Eurovision 2020 has gained over 10,000 signatures. And while 2020 has come and gone, fan support remains for the drag superstars to represent the UK at Eurovision.

Last month, the trio talked about their Eurovision dream with Attitude magazine. “I want to do Pride tours, I want to do Eurovision,” Blu Hydrangea said. “If you don’t put it out there it won’t happen!”

Divina thinks they have the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to cut the UK’s string of poor results. She said: “We’re made for Eurovision. We would break the Eurovision curse! Whoever I need to blow to make this happen, I’m very happy to do it. I’ve got a very good mouth.”

If the Frock Destroyers do make it to Eurovision, they’ll be following in the heels of such drag legends as Conchita Wurst, Verka Serduchka. Fellow Drag Race star Courtney Act competed in the 2019 edition of the national final Eurovision — Australia Decides.

The BBC remains quiet about Eurovision 2021 plans

Unusually, nothing has been heard from the BBC regarding their plans for Eurovision 2021. All that is definitely known is that the UK was on the list of 41 participating countries, as confirmed by the EBU in October 2020.

In previous years, the BBC’s Eurovision team has usually revealed at least their selection method by the autumn prior.

We discuss The Frock Destroyers from 11:00.

However, it has been noted that the BBC’s Eurovision publicity team is also involved with Strictly Come Dancing. The popular celebrity dance contest was aired one month later than usual due to Covid concerns, meaning that the publicity team may have waited until Strictly was over before moving onto Eurovision work.

The grand final of Strictly Come Dancing was held on 19 December, leading into the holiday break.

At Eurovision 2020, the UK was due to be represented by James Newman with his song “My Last Breath”. There is no word if he will be invited back for 2021.

What do you think? Would you like to see the Frock Destroyers represent the UK at Eurovision 2021? How should the UK choose their song for Rotterdam? Tell us your thoughts below!

I’ve heard them and I don’t think the voices measure up. We need a fully trained, experienced professional – they are not! They are very ‘different’ but……it’s been done! They would be immediately compared to Conchita Wurst and he had a great voice – that’s why he won. The contest is all about the voice and the song. I have written a song and I am waiting to submit it to the BBC. It is catchy, fun and exactly what we need to escape covid, if only for about 3 minutes.

The ESC is a place where diverse acts should be welcomed; at least, that is the intention. The music and the songs usually determine the winner anyhow. I am disappointed by much of the comments here, for two reasons: 1. Telling Wiwibloggs what to endorse or not endorse; this simply won’t work. The agenda has been obvious right from the start, and theoretically it is in line with the ESC, so why whine about it. Either acknowledge it, or move on and create your own blog. Simples. 2. The shaming of UK acts for being camp or overweight – needless… Read more »

Let’s put aside the fact that they’re drag queens, let’s do what the optimists say and judge their music. I listened to their “hit” song “Break Up (Bye Bye)” and it shows that they are not ready for Eurovision. At best, that song could be used in one those Eurovision parody skits that shows the writers are living in 2006. Plus, who wants to hear a song where the performers, in the first person, refer to how awesome they are? Stereotypical and annoying drag queen behavior.

So why do ESC fans love Kamil Show’s “Puerto Rico” so much? Kamil didn’t have the wackiness of Verka, or the talent of Conchita. It’s clearly a joke song, but what’s the joke (also Kamil’s singing is so bad, she almost has anti-talent).

Well, I only moderately liked Puerto Rico TBH. There were far better songs in that NF (Waiting For the Sun, Ari Ari, Stand Up, Qami, to name a few). The song was perhaps in a ”so bad it’s good” category, which can be very entertaining at times. It might have been a ”joke of randomness”, like Dustin the Turkey, maybe? That’s very childish and might be annoying to some, but I can see the appeal in the right context. 😉

I suppose that could be true. But I always that the reason people liked “Dancing Lasha Tumbai” so much was because of how random the performance and song were. But the thing about Kamil is that she sang horribly (likely on purpose) and performed in a campy, stereotypical drag queen way, so it comes off like fans like it for the way it was performed.

Now, it’s absolutely fine with them being drag queens. We all know about Conchita. But I don’t want the ‘UK Curse’ to become even worse because of the Frock Destroyers, nor people who were in reality/competition shows going to serious contests. I adore Drag Race, but I’ll be honest, I can name very few queens who can sing. Also, their album.. was questionable to say the least. All I hope for them if they do get selected are good live vocals..

I am not a fan of drag in ESC (otherwise I don’t mind it). But of course, it is the music which counts, and it should be verdicted that way. For me e.g. Slovenia 2002 is a nice song. Like e.g. “”Ready For Me” (Mf 2005) and “Puerto Rico (Armenia 18). Those songs had a “fresh” feel to them I think, made them stand a bit more out

I disagree. Michael Rice had a bland song but My Last Breath had some oomph to it. I think there’s a way to be upbeat and poppy without making a fool out of yourself. If they sent Paloma Faith or The Anchoress or The Pipettes, something like that, then they’d be on the right track.

I would like Newman to write our song at the very least, and sing it if it is an EDM song in the mould of his Armin Van Burren work. I have also long wanted Iain James to write our entry. My Last Breath had way more professionalism than Bigger than Us and a good video. If he wouldn’t be good enough, I want him and Iain to write an entry for or with Ella Henderson, and than we can get our top 10 entry.

I’ll repeat an earlier point. If they have a good song they should be considered. If they don’t have the song they shouldn’t be. ALSO: Anyone writing them off just because they are drag queens is demonstrating the same hate and bigotry that was directed at Conchita Wurst before Eurovision. Prejudice takes many forms. Anti-drag can read as veiled homophobia. Judge the MUSIC not the person.

Despite the song’s failure to built on last year’s positive result, I did like it and Surie sold it well.

I like the UK but their past Eurovision efforts with the exception of 2011 and 2020 have been a huge disappointment. And people hopping from country to country?

Whilst newer UK and US ESC fans tend to be as huge fans of Drag Race as they are the contest and may want them further entwined it’d be a huge mistake to assume the rest of Europe might necessarily feel the same.

It’s also incredibly unlikely that the Frock Destroyers could serve us a song as strong and well sung as Conchita did.

Drag is an absolutely valid and amazingly hard art form. I very much respect it, it takes so much effort and stamina. The reason that I don’t want Frock Destroyers at eurovision is because of how dated and bland their songs sound. And before you call me a homophobe, I am gay and very comfortable about it. I will admit that there are some bigots lurking around, but at least for me personally that isn’t why I don’t want them to go.

But talking about real music, the UK has much better artists that would give us better songs and the UK a better result. You are not helping promoting these guys instead of good artists willing to try Eurovision.

I’m tired of some people trying to turn Eurovision in a joke. With this group the UK would be just feeding the trolls.

Agreed. It’s a mistake to assume that the audiences for ESC and Drag Race would be identical. There’s a cross over certainly but it doesn’t follow that minor popularity of the Frock Destroyers in the UK would bring in many points with European juries.

We tried novelty performances for 2006 and 2007 in the televote era and we know how that ended up.

Hahahaha, I could see what the comments would be here before scrolling down lol! Wooo fingers crossed we get some real talent representing the UK finally. I’d love to find that petition to sign for them.

Stop making articles on them. Just stop. As someone from UK we have way better artists that want to go, I don’t think the BBC would go for them to be honest and that’s a good thing. This is 2021 not 2001
