Engelbert Humperdinck to represent UK at Eurovision Song Contest 2012 – Scraping The Barrel Or What ?

What on earth are they thinking, Engelbert Humperdinck. Come on, Really ???

It’s not April 1st is it ?

I have no doubt that he is a good singer, I’ll even go as to admit he’s a great singer but is this really the best that “GREAT BRITAIN”  can do ?

It is possible that Engelbert could pull it off, after all he certainly couldn’t do any worse than some of our previous candidates and it is a lottery.

Apparently Humperdinck will perform an, as yet, unannounced song. As if it will make any difference, the BBC said the song would be recorded in London, Los Angeles and Nashville. What the hell difference does it make where it is recorded. It’s the performance on the night that’s going to count as well as the quality of the songwriting.

It will be written by Grammy award-winning producer Martin Terefe and Ivor Novello winner Sacha Skarbek, who co-wrote James Blunt hit You’re Beautiful.

Here we go again with the “they’ve written a hit so they must be able to write another one”

It’s about time they all realised that it doesn’t matter how good your singers and writers are….. by the way did I mention that It Is A Lottery !!!

Even with all the political voting it’s still a lottery.

And then of course we mustn’t forget that we are universally hated by the rest of europe.

Engelbert, you have my vote even though I don’t think you have a snowballs hope in hell of winning. You’d get my vote for having the guts to do this at the age of 75.

Lets face it, it can’t hurt your career, can it ???
