Be sure to mark Friday 1 March in your diaries. This is the date that Olly Alexander is set to release his Eurovision 2024 song into the world, which the UK star has also confirmed will be called “DIZZY”.

Olly made the announcement via his social media channels. Alongside a picture of him upside down whilst riding a swing, the Years & Years frontman stated: “i actually can’t wait to perform this on the eurovision stage….omg”

The song is already available to pre-save on streaming services.

“DIZZY” snippet

To bide us over until 1 March, Olly has shared a 20-second snippet of “DIZZY”.

Appearing on top of a building at night, Olly sings what is likely to be part of the chorus:

Time was frozen
All memories lost
So won’t you make me dizzy from your kisses
Will you take my hand and spin me
Round and round until the moment never ends

Spikes in dizziness over the coming weeks

The release date reveal comes after Olly shared a weather-themed teaser video on Tuesday. Introduced by BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, Olly goes on to warn us of a “rare phenomena of dizzy spells running towards our dear island.”

With these dizzy spells “coming all the way from Sweden,” it seems clear that the video features teasers about his Eurovision song and performance. This peculiar weather phenomenon is set to be with us for a while, because Olly notes “there isn’t an end to these dizzy spells for the foreseeable just yet.”

The British singer goes on to display four temperatures on the UK map behind him — 1, 7, 11, 29. He states these numbers “should act as a pre-warning of further spikes to come across the impending weeks.”

Naturally, there has been much speculation over what the numbers could mean. Many have been quick to suggest they indicate dates of events over the coming months.

With “DIZZY” now having a confirmed release date of 1 March, the date theory has a lot of merit to it — and allows us to tick “1” off the list. But what about the others?

  • 7: Some have speculated this could be 7 May, the semi-final in which the UK will vote in and when Olly will present a clip of his rehearsal performance. Others have instead suggested 7 April, which so happens to be the date of the London Eurovision Party — it is custom for the UK act to headline the event, and this could perhaps be where Olly plans on giving his first live performance of “DIZZY”.
  • 11: This is the one most people seem in agreement on. The Eurovision grand final will be held on 11 May. Since the UK is an automatic qualifier, we definitely know Olly will be appearing in Saturday’s show.
  • 29: With “DIZZY” set for release on streaming services on 1 March, Olly could be planning an event the day before, 29 February, to officially launch his Eurovision campaign and potentially reveal the music video of the song. Or could there be something else in the works for either 29 March or 29 April?

There are a number of other phrases Olly uses in the video that may well be references to his Eurovision adventure. Perhaps song lyrics, or clues about his live performance.

  • “Stillness in the air”
  • “But don’t get too comfortable just yet”
  • “No telling if they’ll continue to go round and round or just eventually go back to the beginning”
  • “I would like to stress that everyone please look after your beautiful gardens, pull each other close and brace for impact”

Dizzigon

That’s not the only teaser Olly Alexander has recently dropped about “DIZZY”. In his Instagram story, he shared a video about Dizzigon — a medicine to prevent dizziness from “kissing and romantic spinning.”

It came with a list of side effects, which may also give us some hints about the lyrics of “DIZZY”:

  • Stillness
  • Lost memories
  • Frozen time
  • No end
  • No start
  • No stopping
  • Hand holding
  • Kisses

Other warnings that come with the medicine include:

  • Anti-dizziness is not guaranteed
  • Individual results may vary
  • Don’t take if allergic to slayage
  • 24 day warranty or your points back

Caught in the act

“DIZZY” may be under lock and key until 1 March, but Olly has made one little slip up.

TikTok star BECK shared a video to her 1.4 million followers that shows the soon-to-be Eurovision star singing in a stairwell. BECK claims that Olly was singing a snippet of his Eurovision song “DIZZY”.

Olly does appear to be wearing the same outfit that we see in the weather and Dizzigon teasers, suggesting it was filmed on the same day.

How can people judge a song and write such long reviews about 20 seconds? The song Will be about 180 seconds long, you have Heard 20… There are still 160 seconds more. But 20 seconds is enough for many people to know that the song is lame, boring, not risky, familiar, nostalgic, exciting, unexciting and a long etc… WoW! People and their superpowers.

People need to stop being a bunch of Debbie Downers about this. Even though it’s a 20 second snippet there is a lot to unpack here and a lot to be positive about. 1. This sort of music Olly can perform in his sleep so it fits him to the T without being disingenuous. 2. This is one of the riskier entries the UK has chosen in a very long while. Even if Olly is a household name in the UK, choosing him is still a major risk. 3. Looking at the odds and bookies at this stage is irrelevant… Read more »

‘Dizzy’ is pretty tame for Danny Harle (who is the producer). As a long standing fan of Harle’s music, I enjoy the things that make him more leftfield in his approach to making sounds that become ear-worms. One of my favourites in his unique approach is ‘Flowers’, which almost sounds like a video game on acid. The bass line, lilting melody and the psychedelia take you on such a journey, so I was holding our for something just as quirky and annoyingly weird. Not to say this is bad, because it’s not….its good, but its going to be one of… Read more »

Also I hear some people saying “It’s not risky enough”: How many risky songs have won Eurovision recently? Was Tattoo a risky song? What about Arcade or Stefania? Sure Stefania was a bit ethnic but it wasn’t risky to the point of EaEa or Fulenn something (Both of which flopped I might add). What Olly Alexander has is broad appeal, young people will know of him because of his very recent success, older people will know of him from his acting and maybe older songs, and generally his music is very accessible. The stage show is going to be very… Read more »

I agree 100%. Safe songs are actually the ones that win. Apart from the ones you already mentioned (bar “Stefania” – if it wasn’t Ukraine it wouldn’t have won) I will add Keiino who won the televoting in 2019 with a basic Eurodance track. Even Måneskin won with something that is barely innovative. The fandom has this weird tendency to demand something unique and eclectic, but this can be completely hit or miss – Konstrakta and Go_A succeeded, while as you mentioned Blanca Paloma and Alvan failed miserably. UK should focus on delivering good staging – this is what makes… Read more »

Konstrakta, Go_A and Blanca Paloma were all good. I don’t even think Blanca flopped, she got 100 points in total. Let’s see how many Nebulossa get this year. Alvan did flop but results aren’t everything. Personally I prefer an interesting “flop” rather than a song thay I could hear every day in the radio.

I should have clarified that I’m talking about the public vote – Blanca Paloma got 0 there. And sure, I prefer listening to various stuff and that’s why I make my own Spotify playlists every year and I don’t care about the results. The results are another story but people have the tendency to mix them up – when they don’t like something they ‘predict’ or ‘wish’ that it well end up in the bottom, and the other way round. The reality is very different though and one can only analyse results based on facts and not on personal preferences.… Read more »

I should add we are all guilty of “spinning the results” sometimes. If you ask people how Eaea did, people who like it will tell you it got 100 points and people who didn’t like it will tell you it was last in the televote. Ask about Tatto and people who like it will say it won overall while people who don’t will say it was only second in the televote.

That’s totally true. But the facts are facts. Loreen won and that’s a fact that doesn’t change whatever way you present it. When it comes to predictions though it’s easy for everyone to say whatever they want since it’s still a hypothesis and not a fact. That’s where people need to realise that their personal preferences don’t determine the fate of the actual results and when they project their preferences to their predictions about the results that’s nothing more than wishful (or hateful) thinking.

If you watched The Late Late Show then you wouldn’t be surprised. Apart from the fact that Bambie Thug was actually the best of the evening there was a clear effort from RTÉ to move away from ‘safe’ choices, which was mentioned or implied multiple times during the show by the presenter and the guest panel. And this is totally understandable. Ireland is not really aiming for a win, but trying to find their footing in ESC again. They need a qualification to the final and maybe a left side of the scoreboard finish and they need to take risks,… Read more »

Yes. But at least 3 of the 6 acts were “safe” but luckily it did not backfire. I disagree though that this “risky” choice will not have the same impact at ESC. If you gave me a free bet that Ireland will not qualify – or win, I would take the second of the two. We’ll see.

Compared to previous years when all 6 acts were “safe”, 3/6 was already a huge improvement. I never said it won’t qualify – I think you didn’t read my comment carefully: I said that risky is a good strategy if you want to stand out and qualify, but rarely works if you want to win ESC because it can’t reach the wider audiences required. Of course “Doomsday Blues” will qualify and this will be well deserved. It was also my favourite after watching The Late Late show.

I know you didn’t. But I think you might be underplaying how well it could do unless the (Swedish) “producers” try to sabotage it with the draw. Wasn’t Cha Cha Cha risky albeit this is more so. I agree with your points otherwise. “Judas” (the song!) touched me in a more direct way, though D Blue is the best choice for Ireland. Go Tobann a likely NQ.

They need to nail the staging, the way that Konstrakta and Go_A did, and I still don’t think it’s enough to win. It’s not enough to have a certain amount of people that love the song in a 25-strong field to win. You need to be able to reach larger audiences and this is very difficult with such a polarising song. The number of televoters in ESC is hundreds times larger than The Late Late Show. “Cha cha cha” had a greater appeal because simply it was fun. “Doomsday Blue” is way more leftfield. And yes “Go Tobann” which was… Read more »

Super safe and unexciting, as Rich commented below. Perhaps the staging and performance can elevate the song but by no means that snippet justifies 2nd place in the odds and a contester for the win. Let’s wait and see. If I am wrong, I will admit this early criticism.

It’s literally a snippet FGS! It’s just a glimpse….a few seconds of a song that showcases literally part of a melody. How can you deduce that it’s not worthy of 2nd in the odds or a contender for the win?
The fandom are absolutely ridiculous at times.

The odds mean absolutely NOTHING to anyone that has any sense.

It’s not a wacko as some of Danny Harle’s other stuff, but it’s going to be a quality song. Just wait till the 1st to see what you really think.

Exactly that. As I described above fans tend to project their wishful (or hateful) thinking to their predictions about the results. It doesn’t work this way though and especially in this case, where we haven’t even listened to the whole song.

It’s my opinion. And yes, as a senior Eurovision fan, I can judge from a 20-second clip. Most of the fans let their personal tastes and preferences (or wishful thinking) guide their opinions and spill their nasty comments around.

I wish the UK sent something of the level and style of Sam Ryder’s “Spaceman”. Back then (but obviously you don’t / can’t / don’t want to remember), a snippet made the fans split again. “How can you judge from a 20′ clip?”.

Good luck to the UK!

It’s encouraging that he wants to go, as he genuinely seems to love the contest. The sad thing is, that if you’re an established artist the whole management etc don’t want you to take risks. They want predictable, as you can read in comments below “oh so nice, like years and years, he stays true blabla”. If you want to win, you need to take risks and outsmart/surprise others. And this feels super safe and thus unexciting. He should have left his comfort zone and surprise himself. If UK wants to win, they have to think more in the alley… Read more »

I don’t understand the whole “you need to take risks ” rationale. Did Loreen take any risks last year? I recall so many comments calling her song bland and generic. Why is everyone overthinking it? I totally believe that artists should do what they feel comfortable with. The public wants to hear nice songs and “Dizzy” seems to be one. What UK and BBC need to be careful is the staging – this is where a song can be ruined or stand out and become memorable – and the vocals, but I have no doubts that Olly will deliver.

I agree with you. Although I understand why people assume risks are good, in reality risks hardly ever pay off. The songs that win tend to be safe-ish songs that ooze quality and are memorable. Taking a risk doesn’t even guarantee you a 50/50 chance at winning. The odds are even lower. Examples of risks are the following: *Jendrik – ‘I Don’t Feel Hate’. *Let 3 – ‘Mama Š?!’ *Blanca Paloma – ‘Eaea’. *Alvan & Ahez – ‘Fulenn’ *Achille Lauro – ‘Stripper’. *Konstrakta – ‘In Corpore Sano’. *Hatari – ‘Hatrid Mun Sigra’ Some did well.

Obviously taking risks is going to be risky, and worse on average that not taking risks. But sometimes taking risks pays off, both in terms of a great song (Hatrid Mun Sigra was great in my opinion – I understand others disagree) and in terms of winning (Salvador Sobral was taking a huge risk with his song, relative to the mainstream/pop friendly stuff in the radio).

From the tiny clip so far I’m a bit indifferent. A few thoughts and hopes. Olly is undoubtably the biggest established star the UK has sent in decades. The Years and Years hits gave us something fresh and are now almost pop classics, therefore the expectation is sooooo high for his Eurovision song that anything less than 10 out of 10 will be criticised or may seem disappointing. Even though it may still be a great song. One of the things I love about his previous hits is the storytelling lyrics, what we’ve heard In this snippet leans towards the… Read more »

This sounds promising and with a good stage performance it could reach top 5. Interesting year for the UK.

It doesn’t sound as a bad song for sure! But it is really funny to see odds placing the UK in top 10 year after year (this time even as a fav to win) when that’s nothing but a wishful thinking honestly. It would take a miracle for Olly to place at least 10th with this piece.

We have to take into consideration that this is a snippet and we have to wait and see how all this comes together with the full reveal on the 1st. However, with this Dizzy snippet, this feels like a fully rounded package that doesn’t need changing, unlike with certain entries that need major overhauls of staging and performance to become palatable and ones to watch. So all and all, I’m excited,… Read more »

It’s because it’s the UK so they love to be harsh and dish out double standards
