Don’t really understand this one. Last night on BBC1 saw the first episode of a new series, “Your Country Needs You”. Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has apparently written the UK’s next entry for the Eurovision Song Contest, now we have to endure week after week of his search for an act to perform it.
We even had the unedifying spectacle of Lloyd Webber pleading with Europe’s UK Ambassadors to vote for his UK entry.
But hang on. I thought the Eurovision Song Contest was just that – a contest to find the country with the best song. Surely it defeats the object that the UK entry is written by Lloyd Webber? Why stop there? Why not ask McCartney?
But hey – it’s Saturday night, and a queue of aspiring singers troupe behind a closed door to strut their stuff in front of a judging panel.
