  5. Heavens - the Brit's really, really do not want to win the Eurovision! For a country that has produced such an amazing amount of fantastic music through the years, the mind boggles over the Eurovision entries...

  6. I have only heard it once, and while I may like it (time will tell), I can't see this doing anything in Eurovision. In any case, at least it's somewhat fun...
