Graham Norton BBC Eurovision

Since the UK was confirmed as being on the EBU’s list of participating countries for Eurovision 2021, fans have eagerly been waiting for an update from the BBC. And finally the UK broadcaster has broken their silence with a promise that news about their 2021 song and artist will be coming soon.

The BBC made a post to their Eurovision Twitter account, the first update since May 2020. In celebrating #100DaysToEurovision, the broadcaster reminded fans of the upcoming Eurovision themed episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

But almost as an afterthought, the tweet casually ended with “P.S. we promise to have 2021 artist & song news soon”

This is atypically late for the BBC. In September 2019, they confirmed they would be scrapping the national final and moving to internal selection. Singer James Newman was announced on 27 February.

While earlier this week, 2019 singer Michael Rice celebrated two years since he won the most recent edition of Eurovision: You Decide in January 2019.

However, 2021 isn’t an ordinary year. The UK has been hit hard by Covid-19 and the country is in the middle of another strict lockdown.

Rumoured UK acts for Eurovision 2021

At the top of a lot of fans’ lists is James Newman. He was originally internally selected to represent the UK at Eurovision 2020 with his song “My Last Breath”.

Last year James went on a songwriting retreat with his regular co-writing team, including the writers behind “My Last Breath”. And while it wasn’t confirmed if he was specifically writing another Eurovision entry, James told a radio interview, that “I would absolutely love to do it again [in 2021]”. He added that “I’ve already started thinking of ideas for our song and I’ll definitely be writing the song if the BBC ask me.”

Another fan favourite is X Factor star Fleur East. Fans spotted a recent song registration for a track with writing credits for both her and James Newman. However, later during an Instagram live, Fleur said she’d never been asked to do Eurovision.

And we can’t have a UK Eurovision rumours list without mentioning the Frock Destroyers. The drag trio have made no secret of their desire to represent the UK at Eurovision. During a New Year’s Eve special, group member Divina De Campo teased their plans for 2021, saying “And who knows — maybe Eurovision?”

Or could RuPaul’s Drag Race UK be taking the place of a UK Eurovision national final? That’s the outrageous suggestion some fans are making following news of the RuRuvision challenge on tonight’s episode of the popular drag competition. Will the winner of the challenge receive a ticket to Rotterdam along with their RuPeter Badge?

Whoever ends up representing the UK at Eurovision 2021, fans are at least glad to see the BBC’s Eurovision presence on social media has reemerged for the new season.

What do you think? Who should represent the UK at Eurovision 2021? How should the act be selected? Tell us your thoughts below!

For many years, I’ve seen the potential in the Electroclash acts of yore making it for UK. Ladytron ticks all the boxes. Quartet from Liverpool? Eastern European roots? Campy ’80s throwback? Catchy wordsmiths?

Europe would despise them. Not because they are drag queens but because they are dreadful and it would look like we are mocking the competition. It is not original – the drag thing has been so overdone at Eurovision and who could possibly top Conchita? It is not clever. It is not funny. They are not talented and most critically of all they are not likeable. No. Just no. I thought we had sunk to an all time low with that lad waddling around wailing bigger bigger but this would be a whole new depth.

There was an interview with the head of delegation (Lee Smithurst?), I’ve not listened to it yet but I gather the gist of it was they don’t want novelty acts and they want to improve the image and set a positive president. I think it would be poor form for them not to pick James

Pffff sounds good! In the end the drag race eurovision episode was a disaster and nothing about paying homage to ESC. Plus, no act was selected for ESC.

I think they should ask James to write the song (well they have already selected a song) but the performer/artist should be someone else IMO. I think James is a wonderful person but lacks of stage charisma.

James deserves to be chosen, and I look forward to his latest contribution. I’m sure he and his team have had many great ideas and I would have liked maybe a choice.
But is he much of a performer? Does he have charisma and stage experience, and really sell the song to the voters? I know he’s more of a producer)behind the scenes guy. It’s likely he’s spend the last year rehearsing and coaching himself.

If the UK sends those drag queens, they won’t be anywhere near the top 10 over the next few years. I was hoping the UK was going in the right direction with their NS and extensive internal selection for 2020, but if they keep this mindset that Eurovision is an entertainment show first and a music show second, they’ll never get anywhere no matter how much money or how many resources they throw behind their entries.

You’ve hit the nail on the head. If you send a joke act, it’s not even about doing well or doing badly that year, it’s the DAMAGE that it does to your credibility when trying to convince artists to be your representative in the years to come.
Scooch, Electro Velvet and the like are the reason that the UK finds it so hard to convince anyone with anything approaching an actual professional career in music to go to Eurovision.

It takes talent to send a *good* joke act (Little Big, Verka and even Jedward). The main point is – Is it funny? Are we laughing *with them* or *at them*? What many ”joke acts” forget is that being shiny, glittery or nonsensical isn’t a good joke on it’s own. You need either substance (critique via humor) or a good show with a catchy tune. Not just being randomly over-the-top. And yes, I agree that a big country like UK sending awful songs like in 2003 or 2007 sends a damaging message that the competition itself isn’t something to take… Read more »

I can believe that a drag act would not necessarily be a joke act. But think of how the audience at large would perceive it. On the side, and just for the sake of the argument, it seems that Germany’s 2021 will be a “joke act” of some sort. Considering that we already have “Discotheque” which is not a joke act but it’s sort of quirky and fascinating. Iceland will probably bring something fun too. Lithuania and Iceland will qualify, I don’t have any doubt about that. Count those two, plus Germany. Three already. Maybe Russia too in case Little… Read more »

Conchita isn’t a joke act. She was legitimately good. Verka was a great joke act, because the joke wasn’t that she was a drag, but that she was an exaggerated version of a loud Babushka. DQ was an accidental joke act, because she tried to pass being drag for humor. It all depends on what kind of song & show do these performers have. And based on the song displayed on a previous article about them, they appear to be more DQ than Verka or Conchita. Still, I’m giving them a benefit of a doubt.

Once again, I did not refer to drag acts as joke acts. But Conchita isn’t a great example as she characterised herself as a legitimate singer, who just also happened to do drag. Most of the other acts you’ve listed are not singers but entertainers, which is different, and that is where the comparison is drawn. I did check out their debut single though, and it is definitely a case of the latter and not the former.

Well (a) drag has been done to death so where is the novelty? (b) Baga Chipz and the other terrible pun names are a clue to how not serious this entry would be musically (c) having checked them out they cannot sing or move for toffee. Z clicking and “attitude” isn’t a performance.

I spent much of lockdown last summer writing a Eurovision song, hoping I could enter it in an early round…….but nothing happened! I firmly believe that, with professional judges and the public, we should go back to a ‘You Decide’ style show. The majority of the rest of Europe get the country involved and ask for song submissions. They attract huge interest and have lots of entries which they arrange into rounds/ TV shows. The ones I have seen so far are GREAT FUN! They really know how to muster interest in Eurovision in the rest of Europe. Sweden are… Read more »

Unless James has refused to do it, I can’t think of any reason why the UK would change their artist considering how overwhelmingly positive the reaction was to the entry last year (at least, compared to previous efforts).

No backwards steps, no joke acts, no Mick Jagger impersonators. Everyone wants the UK back at Eurovision, properly.

? am concerned that James has not talked about ESC yet, why do they keep it so secret? I am afraid that they will go for the drag queens act, that’s why BBC has been so secretive instead of confirming James just like other broadcasters have done already with their 2020 artists.

James last talked about it in August, but he hasn’t said he’s not going either (of the 10 acts who aren’t, 6 ruled themselves out – France, Croatia, Norway, Germany, Italy and Denmark – one said “the show continues with or without me”- Albania – another was ruled out by selection process rules -Portugal – and the other 2 were ruled out very cruelly). BBC is naturally secretive and I probably don’t think the answer will be known until the song is unveiled. I doubt RPDR will be a selection though.

I won’t expect the BBC to send in an already known name in the UK like Adele, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Calvin Harris, Bring Me the Horizon, Little Mix, Coldplay, Disclosure, Clean Bandit, Anne-Marie, or G-IDLE. If by any chance one of these names are sent to sing for the UK in Rotterdam, the whole Europe will be biased to the UK, however bad the song may be. It will make the contest pretty unbalanced.

My expectations for the UK are so low at this point. There is so much going on in the country, so much going on in the BBC, that (perhaps quite rightly) there is just no focus on Eurovision. The UK public have an image of what Eurovision is, the BBC is not very popular with the UK public at the moment, so I can see them playing incredibly safely and doing something really cheaply. I will be very happy to be pleasantly surprised but I am in no way getting my hopes up.

I have a feeling that this RPDR episode will just promote the show and the announcement of James or someone else’s song will be later. He’s not said he’s missing out, and hasn’t been ruled out, and Arilena saying “the show continues with or without me” is the only non-returning 2020 artist that didn’t rule themselves out or get openly ruled out. But again, let’s keep an open mind.

James Richard Newman is part of an elite group of songwriters. And he’s got an amazing voice. He can get enough votes in order to achieve a respectable place for the UK. He can write or co-write an amazing song to make us awe in wonder as to why the UK have not sent him before. The only issue is whether the BBC want a respectable result or not. They don’t have to worry about winning – other countries want really badly, world situation or not. The UK must send an amazing song. Just one amazing song every three years.… Read more »

I am not sure Newman would have done better than other UK acts. It is a nice safe choice but is it really something people would remember to vote for? Most likely he would get few scattered votes here and there only to end up 17th or something.
A drag act would get few votes from some, high votes from others but it is consistent voting and would reach top 10. Especially if it is a good drag act..
