LineFromTo

A very good evening to you,

and welcome to a Wednesday

0:00:160:00:19

night out in Brighton!

0:00:190:00:23

An evening where the focal point

of it all is the famous dome.

0:00:230:00:27

Musicians, singers,

composers and writers

0:00:270:00:28

from across the world are inside,

waiting to compete

0:00:280:00:31

for the UK 2018 title.

0:00:310:00:39

And as you join us live

here in the building that used

0:00:390:00:42

a stable 44 royal horses,

we now invite you to sit back

0:00:420:00:44

and enjoy the contest.

0:00:440:00:52

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome

to the stage, Mel Giedroyc!

0:00:530:01:00

to the stage, Mel Giedroyc!

Oh, my

goodness! Hello! My goodness! There

0:01:040:01:07

we go. We have got it.

0:01:070:01:10

Finally, it's time again, welcome

to Eurovision: You Decide 2018,

0:01:100:01:16

where it's up to you to select this

year's UK Eurovision entry!

0:01:160:01:21

Tonight we're live from the famous

dome in Brighton - the very place

0:01:210:01:28

where four unknowns from Sweden

who called themselves Abba won

0:01:290:01:36

the Eurovision Song Contest

in 1974, and, incidentally,

0:01:360:01:43

my co-host tonight

0:01:430:01:44

is from the same country.

0:01:440:01:49

CHEERING

0:01:490:01:53

He knows everything about what it

takes to win Eurovision.

0:01:530:01:55

Please welcome the winner

of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015

0:01:550:01:59

and the host of Eurovision 2016,

Mans Zelmerlow!

0:01:590:02:03

And very emotional!

CHEERING

0:02:030:02:15

Good evening, Britain!

0:02:180:02:21

Thank you, Mel, it's an honour to be

here with you tonight.

0:02:210:02:24

And some of you at home might

still find it strange to find

0:02:240:02:27

a Swede co-hosting this evening,

but bear in mind, I'm

0:02:270:02:30

nowadays practically a Brit.

0:02:300:02:31

I live in London, I have a British

fiance and she's pregnant

0:02:310:02:34

with my very British child.

0:02:340:02:39

CHEERING

0:02:390:02:42

Only one thing left to do - get rid

of the American accent.

0:02:420:02:45

Sorry.

0:02:450:02:47

You Swedes are crazy

about Eurovision, aren't you?

0:02:470:02:54

Doolally.

Good to hear you say that.

0:02:540:02:56

How come?

0:02:560:02:57

Well, first of all, there's really

not much else to do.

0:02:570:03:00

LAUGHTER

0:03:000:03:02

Second of all, and most

importantly, it's basically

0:03:020:03:05

the best show in the world.

0:03:050:03:05

CHEERING

0:03:050:03:07

So will you Brits

please get on board!

0:03:070:03:09

I agree.

0:03:090:03:13

But you know the British

people have a complicated

0:03:130:03:15

relationship with Eurovision,

it's kind of like Theresa

0:03:150:03:17

May's hair and wind.

0:03:170:03:22

Busta

0:03:220:03:22

This I've understood,

and we're here to change that.

0:03:220:03:24

Tonight we have six brilliant songs

for you to choose from.

0:03:240:03:27

Indeed we do.

0:03:270:03:28

Later on we'll explain how

you can vote, but here's

0:03:280:03:30

a quick tip from us now -

go online and sign in or register

0:03:300:03:33

for a BBC account so you're ready

to vote online later on.

0:03:330:03:41

I do not know why I'm doing that,

but I am enjoying it!

0:03:420:03:46

All you need to do is go

to bbc.co.uk/Eurovision.

0:03:460:03:48

I should quickly let you know that

some of tonight's performances may

0:03:480:03:51

contain flashing images.

0:03:510:03:56

Now Mans, off you go.

0:03:560:04:00

As much as I love you!

0:04:000:04:04

And let's begin by paying tribute

0:04:040:04:05

to the group that won Eurovision,

on this stage, 44 years ago,

0:04:050:04:08

and by doing so changed pop

music history forever.

0:04:080:04:10

With over 400 million

records sold worldwide,

0:04:100:04:12

it all started here in Brighton

with one song.

0:04:120:04:19

CROWD:

Waterloo!

0:04:210:04:27

CROWD:

We love you!

0:04:330:04:36

# My, my, at Waterloo

Napoleon did surrender.

0:04:360:04:43

# The history book on the shelf.

0:04:430:04:47

# It's always repeating itself.

0:04:470:04:53

# Waterloo - I was defeated,

you won the war.

0:04:530:05:01

# Waterloo - promise

to love you forever more.

0:05:020:05:10

# Friday night and

the lights are low.

0:05:110:05:15

# Looking out for a place to go.

0:05:150:05:20

# With a bit of rock music.

0:05:200:05:22

# Everything is fine.

0:05:220:05:24

# You're in the mood for a dance.

0:05:240:05:28

# And when you get the chance.

0:05:280:05:33

# You are the dancing queen.

0:05:330:05:36

# Young and sweet.

0:05:360:05:39

# Only 17.

0:05:390:05:44

# Dancing queen.

0:05:440:05:46

# Feel the beat from

the tambourine, oh yeah.

0:05:460:05:53

# You can dance.

0:05:530:05:56

# You can jive.

0:05:560:05:58

# Having the time of your life.

0:05:580:06:02

# Ooh, see that girl.

0:06:020:06:05

# Watch that scene.

0:06:050:06:07

# Dig in the dancing queen.

0:06:070:06:15

# Where are those happy days,

they seem so hard to find.

0:06:220:06:29

# I tried to reach for

you but you have closed your mind.

0:06:290:06:37

# Whatever happened to our love?

0:06:370:06:40

# I wish I understood.

0:06:400:06:44

# It used to be so nice.

0:06:440:06:46

# It used to be so good.

0:06:460:06:52

BOTH:

# So when you're near me,

darling, can't you hear me, SOS.

0:06:520:07:00

# The love you gave me,

nothing else can save me, SOS.

0:07:000:07:07

# When you're gone, though I try,

how can I carry on?

0:07:070:07:15

CHEERING

0:07:210:07:26

# I don't wanna talk

about the things we've gone through.

0:07:310:07:38

# Though it's hurting

me, now it's history.

0:07:380:07:45

BOTH:

# The winner takes it all.

0:07:450:07:49

# The loser standing small.

0:07:490:07:53

# Beside the victory.

0:07:530:07:57

# That's her destiny.

0:07:570:08:01

# The winner takes it all.

0:08:010:08:09

# The winner takes it all.

0:08:110:08:18

# The winner takes it all.

0:08:180:08:24

CHEERING

0:08:240:08:30

Come on!

0:08:490:08:56

This hat is too Bay, it'll all go

wrong.

0:08:560:08:58

Mans Zelmerlow together with last

year's You Decide winner,

0:08:580:09:03

the beautiful, talented Lucie Jones!

0:09:030:09:07

That is even worse. That is better.

0:09:070:09:10

Welcome, or rather welcome back,

to You Decide, Lucie.

0:09:100:09:12

You know exactly how our competing

artists are feeling

0:09:120:09:14

backstage right now.

0:09:140:09:22

LAUGHTER

0:09:230:09:25

What advice can you give them?

0:09:250:09:31

Literally now?

I which is say relax,

you had to enjoy this experience.

0:09:310:09:36

This audience is a

once-in-a-lifetime thing.

0:09:360:09:38

CHEERING

Nobody is here to catch anyone out

0:09:380:09:42

or throw any stones, it is all just

love and happiness and such a

0:09:420:09:47

unique, wonderful thing.

Thank you

so much for joining us tonight.

0:09:470:09:51

Lucie Jones!

0:09:510:09:57

And now it's time to meet

the stars of the evening.

0:09:570:09:59

The six competing acts.

0:09:590:10:04

I have always wanted to do this. I

will do that. It did not work!

0:10:040:10:13

Once again we spread the net far

and wide with song writers' camps

0:10:130:10:17

British music industry

0:10:170:10:18

professionals, and a public

submission process, all to find

0:10:180:10:20

the best song to take us

to the Eurovision Song Contest.

0:10:200:10:23

Which, by the way, I won in 2015!

I

think we have already clocked that!

0:10:230:10:29

Hundreds of songs were whittled down

to the final six you're

0:10:290:10:32

going to see tonight.

0:10:320:10:33

But which one and who will represent

the United Kingdom?

0:10:330:10:35

That's up to you to decide.

0:10:350:10:36

First up, with 'Crazy,

please welcome, Raya!

0:10:360:10:38

CHEERING

0:10:380:10:41

And finally, please put your hands

together for our final performers

0:11:080:11:11

singing 'I Feel The Love',

it's Goldstone!

0:11:110:11:14

CHEERING

0:11:140:11:18

By the end of the night,

one of these singers will be

0:11:180:11:21

crowned our winner and in May

he or she will get a golden ticket

0:11:210:11:25

to Lisbon to represent the UK

in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018!

0:11:250:11:30

CHEERING

0:11:300:11:36

Now, listen up at home,

0:11:360:11:39

of voting with a 50-50 combination

0:11:390:11:42

of our professional jury's vote

plus your public vote.

0:11:420:11:45

Our professional jury of eight music

industry experts are viewing

0:11:450:11:48

the performances like you on TV

0:11:480:11:50

tonight's acts very closely.

0:11:500:11:54

We'll open the vote after we have

0:11:540:11:57

of the show we will indeed

We'll give you all the details

0:12:010:12:04

may still be charged.

0:12:070:12:12

You will feel like a plumber!

0:12:120:12:18

0:12:180:12:20

However, all the information

0:12:200:12:22

found on our website,

bbc.co.uk/Eurovision.

0:12:220:12:23

And remember - you have to vote.

0:12:230:12:25

If you don't vote, you're

not allowed to complain

0:12:250:12:27

about the results afterwards.

0:12:270:12:28

PRETENDS TO COUGH

Brexit!

0:12:280:12:29

Bless you.

0:12:290:12:30

CHEERING

0:12:300:12:36

I'm following you!

0:12:360:12:38

Now, let us introduce

you to our fantastic expert panel

0:12:380:12:41

who will offer their professional

thoughts and opinions

0:12:410:12:43

on each of the songs,

and how they could perform

0:12:430:12:45

in the Contest.

0:12:450:12:48

First up, it's songwriting

genuis and one quarter

0:12:480:12:50

of McFly, Tom Fletcher.

0:12:500:12:54

CHEERING

0:12:540:12:59

Hello!

Tom!

Evening.

The songs have

been out there as recordings but

0:12:590:13:08

this will be the first performance

on stage. How does the performance,

0:13:080:13:13

how climate change the nature of the

song? About 100%. Live performance

0:13:130:13:18

is what it is about, you do not know

a song until you have seen it is

0:13:180:13:22

about, you do not know a song until

you have seen a perform live.

It can

0:13:220:13:25

make or break, that is why today is

so important. I am sure everybody

0:13:250:13:30

thinks they know their favourite

song already but this can change

0:13:300:13:33

people's minds or confirm it, it is

a huge responsibility. No pressure,

0:13:330:13:37

guys!

0:13:370:13:39

Please welcome our next

panelist, singer and member

0:13:390:13:41

of The Saturdays, Rochelle Humes.

0:13:410:13:46

Hello!

Lovely to see you.

And you.

0:13:460:13:54

It's a lot of pressure

on a performer at Eurovision,

0:13:540:13:56

and here tonight, since they all

have to sing live.

0:13:560:13:58

Not only do they have this thing

here, but potentially 2/200 million

0:13:580:14:03

television viewers live from Lisbon.

-- not only do they have thing here.

0:14:030:14:07

What should our singers be thinking

about when they perform?

0:14:070:14:11

You probably have the most

supportive audience I have seen and

0:14:110:14:14

a very long time. Whilst you are

here, this is your demographic, so

0:14:140:14:22

make the most of this. But remember

to connect, connect with everybody

0:14:220:14:27

at home. It is so, so important you

are not just thinking about tonight

0:14:270:14:32

and the room but everybody down the

lens as well.

Nice words.

0:14:320:14:37

And finally, completing our expert

panel, it's Eurovision

0:14:370:14:39

superfan Rylan Clark-Neal.

0:14:390:14:41

CHEERING

0:14:410:14:46

Hello, you! Hello, Mans!

0:14:480:14:53

Winning Eurovision is of course not

just about the performer.

0:14:530:14:56

It's the combination of a brilliant

performer and a brilliant song

0:14:560:14:58

plus an effective staging.

0:14:580:14:59

How can we spot this tonight?

0:14:590:15:06

I think everybody in here has their

favourite so far, but the

0:15:060:15:11

performances in a dress rehearsal,

but changed all of our minds

0:15:110:15:16

tonight. They had to come out

tonight and absolutely smash it,

0:15:160:15:20

it's the biggest show on the planet!

They've got to do well!

That see

0:15:200:15:25

your teeth. Mans? There is very

little in it!

Thank you so much.

0:15:250:15:36

Already now we have some images

from Lisbon, where the grand

0:15:360:15:39

final will take place.

0:15:390:15:42

This is actually the

stage in the arena.

0:15:420:15:44

It looks stunning.

0:15:440:15:45

What are your reactions

to the stage, Tom?

0:15:450:15:49

It looks incredible, massive, it is

a huge stage for one person to fill

0:15:490:15:56

so they need to bring their A-game.

0:15:560:15:59

Well, it's fantastic

to have you all on hand

0:15:590:16:01

to share your thoughts and opinions,

although of course,

0:16:010:16:03

you will not be voting.

0:16:030:16:07

No, not allowed to vote! That is the

secret jury we have hidden behind

0:16:070:16:14

the scenes.

0:16:140:16:14

Tonight's winning song will be

decided by a 50-50 combination

0:16:140:16:17

of the votes of you at home

and those of our jury

0:16:170:16:20

of professionals.

0:16:200:16:22

Enough chat, let's

get the show started.

0:16:220:16:24

Are you ready to hear

the competing acts of 2018?

0:16:240:16:27

CHEERING

0:16:270:16:32

I think so.

0:16:320:16:33

First up, singing 'Crazy' is Raya.

0:16:330:16:35

Let's find out a little

more about her.

0:16:350:16:42

My name is Raya, and

I'm from Doncaster.

0:16:420:16:46

I'm a short northern firecracker

with a heart of gold.

0:16:460:16:53

When I was in the car with my dad

I used to listen to his CDs.

0:16:530:16:57

He used to play, like,

Shania Twain, Celine Dion, like,

0:16:570:16:59

all these things that you wouldn't

expect a dad to listen to.

0:16:590:17:02

And it must have been how

I started wanting to sing,

0:17:020:17:04

because I used to hear my dad doing

it and want to copy him, basically.

0:17:040:17:09

Over the years, I've done loads

of different types of gigs,

0:17:090:17:13

whether it be really quiet,

stripped back gigs or massive

0:17:130:17:16

thousands and thousands of people.

0:17:160:17:17

I think my stage experience

will really help.

0:17:170:17:19

The song that I'm

singing is called Crazy.

0:17:190:17:21

It's a song that we

can all relate to.

0:17:210:17:25

We've all been in a situation

with love and lust.

0:17:250:17:27

You just go crazy about someone.

0:17:270:17:29

I think it's quite

a universal thing, isn't it?

0:17:290:17:32

I'd like to think so,

otherwise it's just me!

0:17:320:17:38

It's kind of one of those songs

you can't help but move to.

0:17:380:17:41

Every time I hear it, I start,

like, vibing out to it.

0:17:410:17:44

I think everyone will be like that.

0:17:440:17:48

It's an amazing song,

I'm hoping to get some dance

0:17:480:17:51

in there and just bring something

a little bit different.

0:17:510:17:53

I'm only little and I want to come

out and bring a bit of power

0:17:530:17:57

and sass and female

empowerment, female boss.

0:17:570:18:01

I am going to get onto that stage

and I'm going to give it what for.

0:18:010:18:04

I'm going to smash it.

0:18:040:18:07

Performing 'Crazy', it's Raya.

0:21:010:21:06

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:21:060:21:12

Come on over. Well done! What a

cracking start.

And over to our

0:21:200:21:30

panel, Tom, last year a ballad won

Eurovision but do you think this

0:21:300:21:35

year is the year for an up-tempo

song?

It could become a bit of a

0:21:350:21:40

perfect example of how the live

performance makes or breaks a song,

0:21:400:21:44

it is everything. It is not just

hearing the song, you and performing

0:21:440:21:48

and dancing and it's not easy doing

it like that, not that I sing and

0:21:480:21:52

dance at the same time! But

incredibly difficult and I thought

0:21:520:21:55

you smashed it.

And talking about

singer dancer, this lady is a triple

0:21:550:22:02

threat, she is also a DJ! That is

surely going to serve her well.

0:22:020:22:09

Absolutely, and that was incredible.

First up, and the energy...

APPLAUSE

0:22:090:22:16

You should be so happy, great job.

Was there anything you would like to

0:22:160:22:21

add to the performance if it goes to

Lisbon cracking normally I would say

0:22:210:22:29

five sweaty mechanics but you had

them!

But honestly, your voice is

0:22:290:22:34

great, the song is really catching.

It gets your hips moving. I think

0:22:340:22:41

it's a catchy song and what a way to

open the show.

APPLAUSE

0:22:410:22:46

If you think that Raya has got

what it takes to represent the UK,

0:22:460:22:50

you'll need to call 6 22 52 01

from your mobile or 09015 22

0:22:500:22:53

52 01 from a landline.

0:22:530:22:56

Calls to the short number

from a mobile cost 15p,

0:22:560:22:59

calls to the long number cost 15p

plus your network's access charge.

0:22:590:23:03

Please ask the bill payer's

permission before you call.

0:23:030:23:04

You can also vote online for free

by visiting bbc.co.uk/Eurovision

0:23:040:23:07

where you will also find

terms and conditions.

0:23:070:23:12

Voting won't open until all our acts

have performed so don't call yet,

0:23:120:23:15

as your vote won't count and you may

still be charged!

0:23:150:23:23

And you'll feel like an idiot!

Please give it up for Raya! APPLAUSE

0:23:230:23:31

Superb, well done.

0:23:310:23:33

Time to find out some more

about song number two.

0:23:330:23:35

It's called 'Astronaut' and will be

performed by Liam Tamne.

0:23:350:23:42

My name's Liam Tamne,

and I'm from Coventry.

0:23:420:23:46

I'm someone who lives

life to the fullest,

0:23:460:23:48

and I take huge risks.

0:23:480:23:50

Hence why I'm doing Eurovision.

0:23:500:23:58

Starting out, it was things

like Coventry Choir and little

0:23:580:24:03

productions, playing Michael Jackson

and Geri Halliwell in

0:24:030:24:05

the Spice Girls - as you do!

0:24:050:24:06

And I went into musical theatre,

was in productions like Wicked,

0:24:060:24:09

Hairspray, Hair, Les Mis,

Phantom of the Opera.

0:24:090:24:11

And I think the experience

I've gained over the

0:24:110:24:13

years, I'm ready now.

0:24:130:24:15

The title of this song is Astronaut.

0:24:150:24:19

It's so special to me

because there was a certain point

0:24:190:24:21

in my husband's life

that he lost his dad,

0:24:210:24:25

and it became my role

to support him and his family.

0:24:250:24:30

And that's essentially

what the song is about.

0:24:300:24:32

It's about uplifting someone

through the difficult times.

0:24:320:24:35

I think the audience will connect

because we've all had to have

0:24:350:24:38

someone to support us.

0:24:380:24:40

I potentially would be representing

the United Kingdom, and that is...

0:24:400:24:44

It comes with a lot of pressure,

but it's something where...

0:24:440:24:48

That's what I strive on,

that's the thing that keeps me

0:24:480:24:51

going and wants me to constantly be

the best that I can be.

0:24:510:24:54

I'm so ready to get out there.

0:24:540:24:57

I just want everyone to see

what I've been working on,

0:24:570:24:59

because keeping it a secret for such

a long time, and now it's finally

0:24:590:25:03

out there and everyone knows,

it's exciting and I just can't wait

0:25:030:25:06

to get out there and

perform for you all.

0:25:060:25:07

Performing 'Astronaut',

it's Liam Tamne.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:28:110:28:17

Liam Tamne!

Come back down to earth!

Thank you so much.

Well done. Rylan,

0:28:170:28:32

that was very simple, elegant

staging, would you like to see Liam

0:28:320:28:35

taking it up a notch for Lisbon?

You

know what? Brilliant song and you

0:28:350:28:41

sung it amazing your voice is lovely

and I been a big fan of your musical

0:28:410:28:45

work. All I would say, when most

people watch Eurovision, they will

0:28:450:28:50

judge a song within the first ten

seconds and that is the time when

0:28:500:28:53

you pop outside the grab a drink if

you're not into it but what you

0:28:530:28:56

brought to the second half was

great. You need to do that from the

0:28:560:29:00

beginning otherwise people will lose

you straightaway for the I'm saying

0:29:000:29:05

that because I love the song. I

think you're great but you've got to

0:29:050:29:09

get them from the beginning.

Look

them in.

This is technically quite a

0:29:090:29:14

hard song to sing. How did you think

he did?

Amazing, I have seen you

0:29:140:29:22

before on the state and I knew this

was your environment and you were

0:29:220:29:25

comfortable with a live performance

but it's a technical song going back

0:29:250:29:29

and forth between head voice and

especially the really high note!

0:29:290:29:35

That's difficult. You absolutely

nailed it. Well done.

0:29:350:29:41

Rochelle...

Big news, my friend. There will be

0:29:410:29:46

no LED screens in Lisbon.

I know, I

have heard. Rylan is not too happy.

0:29:460:29:53

You don't need LED screens. You are

amazing. The only thing I would say,

0:29:530:29:57

I would like to see you work the

stage in little more. You were quite

0:29:570:30:02

far away from us, I would like this

you get more involved. Your voice

0:30:020:30:06

that speaks for itself and the song

is very, very good. You are good to

0:30:060:30:11

go with the no LED screens.

0:30:110:30:13

If you think that Liam Tamne has got

what it takes to represent the UK,

0:30:130:30:16

you'll need to call 6 22 52 02

from your mobile 09015 22 52 02

0:30:160:30:22

from a landline or vote online

for free, when the vote opens

0:30:220:30:25

after we've seen everyone

perform in the show.

0:30:250:30:28

Please give it up for Liam Tamne!

Well done, the.

0:30:280:30:34

Next up, let's find out

some more about Asanda

0:30:340:30:36

singing song number three,

'Legends'.

0:30:360:30:40

My name is Asanda,

and I'm from London.

0:30:400:30:42

I would say that I'm

a very ambitious, crazy,

0:30:420:30:47

emotional, sensitive,

happy, energetic person.

0:30:470:30:53

Music makes me feel joyful,

and sometimes you're

0:30:530:30:58

just in your element,

you're in your zone.

0:30:580:31:00

No one can, like, interrupt.

0:31:000:31:03

No one can get you out,

no one can say anything,

0:31:030:31:05

cos it's you, you know?

0:31:050:31:07

You and the music.

0:31:070:31:12

I auditioned for

Britain's Got Talent 2013.

0:31:120:31:14

I gave it my all.

0:31:140:31:15

And I think the judges saw that.

0:31:150:31:17

After Britain's Got Talent I've

been singing so much,

0:31:170:31:19

performing, travelling.

0:31:190:31:21

It's amazing.

0:31:210:31:23

The title of the song

I'm singing is Legends.

0:31:230:31:25

It's very direct, it's truthful,

it's fun and I just hope

0:31:250:31:28

that the audience will have fun.

0:31:280:31:32

This song makes me feel

empowered, definitely.

0:31:320:31:35

And I think that because I feel

empowered, it will truly come

0:31:350:31:38

out when I'm on stage.

0:31:380:31:41

For me to be the youngest, 16,

it's really, like...

0:31:410:31:46

It's a lot of pressure.

0:31:460:31:49

I just want to give my all.

0:31:490:31:51

Once I'm on stage, it's just

like a switch, and it's

0:31:510:31:54

not going to turn off.

0:31:540:31:55

It's just going to be so mad.

0:31:550:31:57

It's going to be lit.

0:31:570:31:59

And I hope you're ready for it.

0:31:590:32:02

Performing 'Legends', it's Asanda.

0:35:060:35:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:35:140:35:19

Wow. Come on down, Asanda. Bring it

in. Good to see you.

I know we spoke

0:35:210:35:38

earlier about cardio and how tough

it is to keep your vocals when

0:35:380:35:41

you're dancing and singing at the

same time, what did you think of the

0:35:410:35:47

choreography, Rochelle?

Is so good.

That, to me, is exciting. So fresh,

0:35:470:35:52

so current, so now. You are 16,

write?! That is incredible. Like

0:35:520:35:58

Rylan said earlier, get your crowd

from the moment the song starts. You

0:35:580:36:02

had is all in, we were with you,

pretending we could do the same

0:36:020:36:08

dance moves. We were there. You've

got it.

0:36:080:36:11

Rylan, do you think we have the

makings of a 1974 style legendary

0:36:110:36:16

performance?

Anyone that wears

jungle trousers, yes, girl! Summer

0:36:160:36:24

2004, bringing it back.

This is exactly what Eurovision is

0:36:240:36:28

all about. From the second but

started, everyone was like, who is

0:36:280:36:32

she, what is she doing? You danced

and sang, everyone loved it. You

0:36:320:36:37

want to watch, you are amazing.

The track has quite a distinct

0:36:370:36:43

sound, what did you think, Tom?

It

sounds great. It wasn't like

0:36:430:36:47

watching somebody take part in a

contest, you looked like a pop star

0:36:470:36:52

performing your single. I love Temm

Reggie Goodes howdy were enjoying

0:36:520:36:55

it, you had the biggest smile. It

makes such a difference when you

0:36:550:36:59

know the artist is having fun.

Housekeeping now.

0:36:590:37:02

If you think that Asanda has got

what it takes to represent the UK,

0:37:020:37:06

you'll need to call 6 22 52 03

from a mobile, 09015 22 52 03

0:37:060:37:09

from a landline, or vote online

for free when the vote opens

0:37:090:37:12

after we've seen everyone

perform in the show.

0:37:120:37:17

Please give it up, everybody, for

Asanda.

0:37:170:37:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:37:220:37:23

That's half of the songs,

only three left.

0:37:230:37:25

The fourth act is Jaz

Ellington singing 'You'.

0:37:250:37:27

Here's some more about him.

0:37:270:37:33

My name is Jaz Ellington,

and I'm from south-west London.

0:37:330:37:41

In one sentence, I would sum myself

up as crazy, fun, lovable.

0:37:410:37:44

My inspiration for singing comes

from quite a few different places.

0:37:440:37:48

So if we're looking at, you know,

the greats, Whitney Houston,

0:37:480:37:51

my favourite singer of all time.

0:37:510:37:54

I grew up on Aretha Franklin

as well, Luther Vandross,

0:37:540:37:57

Stevie Wonder.

0:37:570:37:58

The list goes on.

0:37:580:38:00

Yeah, I'm completely immersed

and surrounded by music.

0:38:000:38:04

Music, music, music.

0:38:040:38:08

I started off singing

in church choirs and stuff,

0:38:080:38:10

and I went to Brit School,

and I was in Leona Lewis's

0:38:100:38:13

class, Katie Melua.

0:38:130:38:14

I did the Voice UK.

0:38:140:38:15

It was amazing.

0:38:150:38:16

I had so much fun.

0:38:160:38:18

It was, to date, the

biggest thing I've done.

0:38:180:38:22

Now I'm on Eurovision!

0:38:220:38:27

And it's nerve-racking,

but exciting.

0:38:270:38:32

The title of the song

I'm singing is You.

0:38:320:38:34

It's a sad song,

but then it's really

0:38:340:38:36

heart-warming, like, touching.

0:38:360:38:41

So, for me, it's your audible gold.

0:38:410:38:42

Hashtag!

0:38:420:38:43

I'm ready.

0:38:430:38:44

I'm ready.

0:38:440:38:45

I'm ready to go on stage,

I'm ready to sing this song

0:38:450:38:48

and bring it the justice that it

deserves, because it's

0:38:480:38:51

a beautiful song.

0:38:510:38:53

Performing 'You',

it's Jaz Ellington.

0:38:530:38:59

# She finds me shelter in the rain.

0:39:000:39:06

# Kisses my head before I sleep.

0:39:060:39:12

# She takes the sky

and turns it blue.

0:39:120:39:18

# But she won't ever be you.

0:39:180:39:24

# She makes me coffee

before I works.

0:39:240:39:30

# She'll sing my songs

in bed till three.

0:39:300:39:37

# By my side she'll stick like glue.

0:39:370:39:43

# But she won't ever be you.

0:39:430:39:51

# Last night I die.

0:39:530:39:55

# I turned to grey.

0:39:550:39:58

# I found a girl.

0:39:580:40:01

# It's such a shame.

0:40:010:40:04

# The look of love is on her face.

0:40:040:40:10

# Oh, what a waste.

0:40:100:40:14

# Sends to me to sleep

like rum and whiskey.

0:40:140:40:20

# Then takes me high as aeroplanes.

0:40:200:40:27

# There ain't nothin'

bad that she could do.

0:40:270:40:33

# But she won't ever be you.

0:40:330:40:39

# Maybe I'll tell

her in the morning.

0:40:390:40:45

# Maybe I'll tell her in a week.

0:40:450:40:51

# I guess it's time

she finally knew.

0:40:510:40:58

# That she won't ever be you, no.

0:40:580:41:06

# Last night I died.

0:41:070:41:10

# I turned to grey.

0:41:100:41:13

# I found a girl.

0:41:130:41:16

# It's such a shame.

0:41:160:41:18

# The look of love is on her face.

0:41:180:41:25

# Oh, what a waste.

0:41:250:41:29

# She's in my head but not my heart.

0:41:290:41:35

# She's in my bed but not my dreams.

0:41:350:41:41

# I think it's time

I tell the truth.

0:41:410:41:49

# That she won't ever.

0:41:490:41:53

# She won't ever be you #.

0:41:530:42:00

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:42:000:42:09

Jaz Ellington, ladies and gentlemen.

Come on over.

Superb. Oh! Now... Are

0:42:090:42:18

you OK?

Yes.

Good. Do you think this

could be the year that we send a

0:42:180:42:25

ballad to Lisbon, Tom?

I don't know

whether a ballad can do it again.

0:42:250:42:30

But I think there is always room for

talent, and you have the most

0:42:300:42:35

incredible voice. When you reach

those high notes, goose bumps don't

0:42:350:42:39

lie and all of my has stood up on my

arm. I could listen to using

0:42:390:42:42

forever.

MANS:

do you agree that he could be

0:42:420:42:54

a contender?

If you release that

song tomorrow, you would be in the

0:42:540:42:58

top five easily, it is an amazing

song. My worry is the ballad won

0:42:580:43:04

last year. Portugal did it so

different last year, it was not just

0:43:040:43:08

a ballad, it was the way he

performed it. I love to that song

0:43:080:43:12

but I would worry that it would get

lost in what other countries are

0:43:120:43:17

bringing. That is nothing against

you personally, I think the song is

0:43:170:43:21

great, but I worry.

0:43:210:43:27

great, but I worry.

Rochelle, Jaz

brought a lot of emotion.

For me,

0:43:270:43:31

emotion never gets old, it is never

a phase. You could hear a pin drop

0:43:310:43:36

in here, there is really some thing

to be said when somebody sings and

0:43:360:43:40

you feel safe. Nobody was worried,

when you hit the note we were not

0:43:400:43:44

cringing, we were thinking this

would be amazing comic he has got

0:43:440:43:47

this, there is something to be said

for that.

0:43:470:43:50

If you think that Jez Ellington

has got what it takes

0:43:500:43:57

from a mobile, 09015 22 52 04

from a landline, or vote online

0:43:570:44:00

for free when the vote opens

after we've seen everyone

0:44:000:44:03

perform in the show.

0:44:030:44:06

Please give that up for Jaz

Ellington.

0:44:060:44:09

Remember, we will open the lines

after the last act has performed.

0:44:090:44:17

I would describe myself

a small but mighty.

0:44:290:44:32

Music was my first language, really.

0:44:320:44:34

I started teaching myself to play

the piano by learning

0:44:340:44:37

to read the music books,

so I learned that before I actually

0:44:370:44:40

went to school and learned

to read normal books.

0:44:400:44:44

I know what it's like to perform

at Eurovision, because I had

0:44:440:44:47

the amazing opportunity to do some

backing vocals and dancing

0:44:470:44:49

for a couple of Belgian artists -

Loic Nottet in 2015 in Vienna,

0:44:490:44:57

and then Blanche last year in Kiev -

which was absolutely incredible.

0:44:570:45:03

You can't really prepare for that

buzz, and that noise.

0:45:030:45:05

The roar of the crowd.

0:45:050:45:10

The Eurovision fans are probably

the best people in the world.

0:45:100:45:15

My track is called Storm,

and this song means a lot to me

0:45:150:45:18

because the lyrics have a very

strong, a very hopeful message

0:45:180:45:21

that we can all take,

and it's got this beautiful melody,

0:45:210:45:24

a really classic,

uplifting pop feel.

0:45:240:45:25

I hope everyone really likes it.

0:45:250:45:30

To represent the UK and to no longer

be a backing vocalist supporting

0:45:300:45:33

other artists but stepping forward

and having my time and my chance

0:45:330:45:36

would be just such an honour.

0:45:360:45:41

I know I can do this,

and there's nothing else I want.

0:45:410:45:43

This is it.

0:45:430:45:49

Performing 'Storm', it's SuRie.

0:45:490:45:56

# Hey, hey brother

0:46:020:46:06

0:48:500:48:57

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:48:570:49:03

Come over here, SuRie. Well, well,

well, good to see you. I can't hear

0:49:080:49:21

anything!

0:49:210:49:28

I was born in Surrey!

If there is

one thing British like to do is talk

0:49:280:49:35

about the weather, you think this is

a representative song for the UK?

0:49:350:49:43

CHEERING

Definitely there is something, it is

0:49:430:49:46

a song of two halves, so intimate at

first and you suck people in the way

0:49:460:49:53

you perform it and then you suddenly

explode into the chorus. If few

0:49:530:49:57

people were singing along in the

first cause but by the second

0:49:570:49:59

everybody was singing.

Rylan, we all

know that Eurovision loves a song

0:49:590:50:07

with a bit of a message. There is a

great message in this song, do you

0:50:070:50:11

think it will go down well?

I take

Eurovision really seriously every

0:50:110:50:16

year and you have come out here and

you have absolutely smashed it with

0:50:160:50:20

that song.

CHEERING

It's got the message, I was a big

0:50:200:50:26

fan last year of Blanche last year,

that was amazing and I think you are

0:50:260:50:35

outstanding, well done.

Would you

change anything, Rochelle?

First of

0:50:350:50:41

all, this room does not lie and they

loved it. The only thing I would

0:50:410:50:45

change, the last chorus, we want to

see you up with it, they love you,

0:50:450:50:52

get rid of the microphone stand and

come to the front.

You're right. We

0:50:520:50:58

also need to see the tape, this is a

lady with a cape! That was a worry!

0:50:580:51:08

If you think that SuRie has got

what it takes to represent the UK,

0:51:080:51:11

you'll need to call 6 22 52 05

from a mobile 09015 22 52 05

0:51:110:51:15

from a landline or vote online

for free when the vote opens

0:51:150:51:18

after we've seen everyone

perform in the show.

0:51:180:51:25

Give it up for SuRie! CHEERING

Well done.

0:51:250:51:30

Only one song left, then it's

up to you and the jury

0:51:300:51:33

to decide tonight's winner.

0:51:330:51:36

Song number six is called

'I Feel The Love', and will be

0:51:360:51:39

performed by Goldstone.

0:51:390:51:40

Take it away.

0:51:400:51:42

I think summing up Goldstone would

be glitzy, glamorous and girly.

0:51:450:51:53

Aimie and I met, we were doing

a musical called Dirty Dancing,

0:51:550:51:58

we were on tour together.

0:51:580:51:59

And we just came up with the idea

that we'd love to be able

0:51:590:52:02

to continue singing together,

because we got on really well,

0:52:020:52:05

and we decided to put

together the group.

0:52:050:52:06

And we needed a third member,

so we had an audition,

0:52:060:52:09

and we found Rhiannon.

0:52:090:52:11

That's where I came in.

0:52:110:52:13

Yeah.

0:52:130:52:14

Rhiannon's got this

very loud Welsh voice.

0:52:140:52:16

Helen's soulful R&B.

0:52:160:52:17

Aims is, like, rocky, sexy, raspy.

0:52:170:52:19

We actually really complement

each other, I think.

0:52:190:52:21

We have such a good time.

0:52:210:52:24

Like, we spend most

of our time laughing.

0:52:240:52:26

Yeah.

0:52:260:52:28

And singing!

0:52:280:52:29

But mostly laughing.

0:52:290:52:30

Our song is called I Feel The Love.

0:52:300:52:32

It was written just

after the Grenfell disaster and also

0:52:320:52:34

the London Bridge attacks.

0:52:340:52:36

And so there's a real message

of people coming together

0:52:360:52:38

and a sense of community,

and staying positive

0:52:380:52:40

and just spreading the love.

0:52:400:52:44

My favourite lyric from the song

is "We can't do it alone,

0:52:440:52:47

times are changing."

0:52:470:52:49

It's just a lyric about unity.

0:52:490:52:51

It's a hopeful song, isn't it?

0:52:510:52:52

Very much so.

0:52:520:52:53

It's about hope and sort of standing

together and being strong.

0:52:530:52:57

This is our moment to show

everybody what we do.

0:52:570:53:00

Yeah, there's a lot of pressure

representing our country.

0:53:000:53:02

We hope to do really

well for you guys.

0:53:020:53:05

But we are so ready to get

out there and do it.

0:53:050:53:08

Yes.

0:53:080:53:09

Let's go, girls.

0:53:090:53:11

Performing 'I Feel The Love',

it's Goldstone.

0:53:110:53:18

# Woke up, don't feel myself.

0:53:220:53:24

# Yo, this is something else.

0:53:240:53:26

# I got the rhythm in me,

I can't shake it.

0:53:260:53:29

# I'm walking down the street.

0:53:290:53:31

# My feet don't miss a beat.

0:53:310:53:33

# I'll get your coffee,

baby, how do you take it?

0:53:330:53:37

# It feels so good in my bones,

but I can take it.

0:53:370:53:40

# This vibe will never get old,

I swear it saves me.

0:53:400:53:43

# And we can't do it alone,

times are changing.

0:53:430:53:49

# You got it, we got it.

0:53:490:53:51

# You got it, we got it.

0:53:510:53:53

# I feel the love in my city,

I feel the love everywhere I go.

0:53:530:53:59

# I feel the love always with me,

it's the kind of love

0:53:590:54:05

that takes me home.

0:54:050:54:07

# I feel the love.

0:54:070:54:11

# I feel the love everywhere I go.

0:54:110:54:13

# I feel the love.

0:54:130:54:18

# It's the kind of love

that takes me home.

0:54:180:54:21

# Come on, get out your seat.

0:54:210:54:24

# You wanna dance with me.

0:54:240:54:26

# Keep filling up my cup,

it's love we're drinking.

0:54:260:54:29

# No matter how you look.

0:54:290:54:31

# We don't play by the book.

0:54:310:54:33

# I love the way you move

so come and sing it.

0:54:330:54:37

# It feels so good in my bones,

but I can take it.

0:54:370:54:41

# This vibe will never get old,

I swear it saves me.

0:54:410:54:43

# And we can't do it alone,

times are changing.

0:54:430:54:48

# You got it, we got it.

0:54:480:54:49

# You got it, we got it.

0:54:490:54:54

# I feel the love in my city,

I feel the love everywhere I go.

0:54:540:54:59

# I feel the love always with me,

it's the kind of love

0:54:590:55:05

# That takes me home.

0:55:050:55:06

# I feel the love.

0:55:060:55:09

# I feel the love everywhere I go.

0:55:090:55:13

# I feel the love.

0:55:130:55:18

# It's the kind of love

that takes me home.

0:55:180:55:21

# Clap your hands, come on!

0:55:210:55:24

# Clap your hands, come on!

0:55:240:55:25

# Clap your hands, come on!

0:55:250:55:28

# Clap your hands, come on!

0:55:280:55:30

# Clap your hands!

0:55:330:55:41

# I feel the love in my city,

I feel the love everywhere I go.

0:55:410:55:46

# I feel the love always with me,

it's the kind of love

0:55:460:55:52

that takes me home.

0:55:520:55:53

# I feel the love.

0:55:530:55:58

# I feel the love everywhere I go.

0:55:580:56:00

# I feel the love.

0:56:000:56:05

# It's the kind of love

that takes me home.

0:56:050:56:10

# I feel the love #.

0:56:100:56:13

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Goldstone!

Come on over. Very tidy.

0:56:150:56:27

In you come. Rochelle, is this the

year we should be sending a girl

0:56:270:56:33

band to the Eurovision?

You're

asking me? Of course! Thank you for

0:56:330:56:40

bringing the sparkle and the girl

band. Why not? Why shouldn't it be

0:56:400:56:45

the time? You did great, so

together.

Did you feel the love?

I

0:56:450:56:51

have been waiting for you to ask me

that, Mans! You are great, girls,

0:56:510:56:57

there were three girls last year

from the Netherlands did Wilson

0:56:570:57:02

Phillips, you are like the upgraded

version, easily. I thought you were

0:57:020:57:07

great, you looked great and you

didn't miss a note and you should be

0:57:070:57:11

proud of yourselves.

Tom, you are

part of a band, is it a nice feeling

0:57:110:57:15

being on a big stage with your

mates? Will that give them the edge?

0:57:150:57:20

It's terrible, go solo! No, it

amazing sharing a stage with your

0:57:200:57:25

best friend is the best feeling and

living you want from any band, girl

0:57:250:57:30

band, boy band, Rock band, is for

people to be wanting to be in your

0:57:300:57:33

band.

I want to be in the band!

Three times too old.

# Your astronaut.

1:00:081:00:14

# We'd be legends tonight.

# Legends tonight.

1:00:301:00:42

# I guess it's time found out.

1:00:501:00:54

# Hold your head up, don't give up,

no, no.

1:01:101:01:21

# It's the kind of love that cheers

me.

1:01:311:01:35

# Feel the love.

1:01:351:01:37

Those were the six competing acts.

1:01:371:01:39

Vote to make sure

your favorite wins!

1:01:391:01:42

Mans, you of course have won

the Eurovision Song Contest.

1:01:421:01:45

Thank you for mentioning that again.

1:01:451:01:48

Well, it's in your

contract, after all.

1:01:481:01:55

I don't want to get all Miss world

on you, but what was the best thing

1:01:551:02:00

about winning?

It is all about the

fans, I have been lucky enough to

1:02:001:02:04

meet the best fans in the world.

CHEERING

1:02:041:02:08

I know them all by now. Absolutely.

There is Steve, Orinoco, Tobermory.

1:02:081:02:19

Great uncle Bulgaria.

You are just

listing the Wombles! If you are

1:02:191:02:26

struggling, and Mans clearly is, to

decide, then take a look at this.

1:02:261:02:37

decide, then take a look at this. We

priced and students away from Homes

1:02:401:02:43

Under The Hammer to watch some of

the highlights from last year.

1:02:431:02:46

Definitely the current sound

at the minute, this song.

1:02:461:02:48

# I can't go on

1:02:481:02:49

# I can't go on.

1:02:491:02:50

Are they on treadmills?

1:02:501:02:51

Yeah!

1:02:511:02:52

Yes, it's treadmills,

go for a stroll!

1:02:521:02:54

# I can't go on

1:02:541:02:55

# I can't go on

1:02:551:02:57

# When you look

this freaking beautiful.

1:02:571:03:00

I like the dance moves.

1:03:001:03:01

The hand movement!

1:03:011:03:03

What is this?!

1:03:031:03:05

Yeah, it's quite

classic pop, isn't it?

1:03:051:03:07

Really.

1:03:071:03:08

It's a catchy song, they've

got good choreography.

1:03:081:03:11

I feel like it would sit quite

comfortably next to your Lady Gagas

1:03:111:03:14

or your Taylor Swifts.

1:03:141:03:15

It's very pop.

1:03:151:03:17

Melodically it's a good song.

1:03:171:03:19

Lyrics, I'm not so crazy about!

1:03:191:03:22

Ooh, emotions.

1:03:291:03:30

Very different vibe.

1:03:301:03:31

I like this one.

1:03:311:03:36

This one seems quite sincere.

1:03:361:03:38

I like this one.

1:03:381:03:41

Yeah, I think this definitely

gets people on more

1:03:471:03:50

like the emotional factor.

1:03:501:03:51

Yeah, he's very into it,

very passionate about it.

1:03:511:03:57

Is he playing air violin?

1:04:001:04:01

He's loving it.

1:04:011:04:07

The majority of Eurovision

is cheesy pop and this

1:04:101:04:13

is not a cheesy pop song,

this is a very gentle approach

1:04:131:04:16

with some lovely, melodic lines.

1:04:161:04:24

I think that's why it did so well,

because it was very different,

1:04:241:04:27

song-wise, instrumentation-wise,

structure-wise.

1:04:271:04:28

# And I say mamma,

mamma, don't be so down.

1:04:281:04:30

# I'm not that kind of boy.

1:04:301:04:32

# Mamma, mamma, don't be so down.

1:04:321:04:39

Are they singing into flowers?

1:04:391:04:40

Yes, as microphones!

1:04:401:04:41

# If you knew me you'd be

surprised

1:04:411:04:43

# Mamma, mamma,

don't be so mad

1:04:431:04:44

# She'll be back

home till sunrise

1:04:441:04:46

# Come on!

1:04:461:04:49

That was an unexpected turn.

1:04:491:04:51

Listen to that sax!

1:04:511:04:53

I like it.

1:04:531:04:56

# Hey mamma, hey mamma,

hey ma-ma-ma

1:05:011:05:06

# Hey mamma,

hey mamma, hey ma-ma-ma.

1:05:061:05:11

I like the performance of this one

more than I like the song.

1:05:111:05:14

It was so catchy.

1:05:141:05:15

It does make you want to do that,

though, doesn't it?

1:05:151:05:18

They should have dabbed,

get with the times!

1:05:181:05:21

I think Eurovision is kind

of a genre in itself.

1:05:211:05:24

If you had every single country

doing exactly the same thing,

1:05:241:05:26

like the same genre,

you'd watch four songs

1:05:261:05:29

and turn it off.

1:05:291:05:36

Some helpful thoughts to bear

in mind on how to pick

1:05:361:05:39

a Eurovision winner.

1:05:391:05:42

I think it's safe to say that it's

not just about the song, is it?

1:05:421:05:45

It's the whole package.

1:05:451:05:46

Absolutely.

1:05:461:05:47

Staging, lighting, song

and artist performance,

1:05:471:05:49

all integral to winning.

1:05:491:05:52

So, Mans, how are you enjoying

yourself here at the BBC?

1:05:521:05:55

Feel at home?

1:05:551:05:56

Perfectly at home.

1:05:561:05:57

I'm feeling more and more

British by the minute!

1:05:571:06:01

I thought you might say

that, so I prepared

1:06:011:06:03

a little test for you -

don't be nervous -

1:06:031:06:06

to see just how British you are.

1:06:061:06:10

Oh, OK.

1:06:101:06:13

Here we go.

1:06:131:06:14

What's Kate Middleton's title?

1:06:141:06:15

Duchess of Cambridge!

1:06:151:06:16

Who's the team captain

of Leeds United?

1:06:161:06:18

Liam Cooper!

1:06:181:06:19

What's a toad in the hole?

1:06:191:06:20

Sausages in Yorkshire pudding!

1:06:201:06:21

What did Europe say to Gemini?

1:06:211:06:23

Bye bye baby.

1:06:231:06:24

How would you describe

Theresa May's hairdo?

1:06:241:06:26

Fluffy!

1:06:261:06:27

In what ways are the

French superior to us?

1:06:271:06:29

None.

1:06:291:06:30

When will Donald Trump visit the UK?

1:06:301:06:31

Never!

1:06:311:06:33

OK, you're British!

1:06:331:06:34

Well done!

1:06:341:06:35

CHEERING

That was amazing.

Thank you so much.

1:06:351:06:39

Mary Berry is waiting

in your dressing room

1:06:391:06:41

with a toad in the hole.

1:06:411:06:43

Off you go.

1:06:431:06:44

Great!

1:06:441:06:46

Well, the vote is still open so once

again, let's remind ourselves

1:06:461:06:49

of tonight's six acts all passionate

about representing the UK

1:06:491:06:51

at Eurovision 2018!

1:06:511:06:59

And you have about 11 minutes left

to votes.

1:07:001:07:03

And please vote - your favorite

artist needs your help to win!

1:07:031:07:09

# Crazy.

# Just a little bit crazy, crazy.

1:07:201:07:28

# But I'm not crazy.

1:07:281:07:34

# I could be your astronaut.

1:07:391:07:42

# Your astronaut.

1:07:421:07:49

# We be legends tonight.

1:08:011:08:04

# Legends tonight.

1:08:041:08:10

# I guess it's time she found out.

1:08:201:08:28

# Hold your head up,

don't give up, no, no.

1:08:411:08:48

# It's the kind of

love that cheers me.

1:09:021:09:04

# Feel the love.

1:09:041:09:12

It's not an easy choice to make

at all, but they can't

1:09:121:09:15

win without your help.

1:09:151:09:17

We're broadcasting live

from Brighton tonight,

1:09:171:09:19

and since it's my first visit

to this beautiful city, I've been

1:09:191:09:22

out to learn some more about it.

1:09:221:09:29

Oh, hi.

1:09:331:09:35

The Brighton Dome is a thing

of architectural beauty,

1:09:351:09:38

and it's particularly dear to me,

being the last Swedish winner

1:09:381:09:40

of Eurovision in 2015.

1:09:401:09:44

Yep, that's where you know me from.

1:09:441:09:46

Because it is also the home

of the first Swedish winners

1:09:461:09:51

in 1974, a little tiny band

you might have heard of called Abba.

1:09:511:09:54

# Waterloo, I was defeated

you won the war...

1:09:541:09:58

As a Swede, I'm making my first

of many spiritual journeys

1:09:581:10:01

to the iconic Eurovision

location of Brighton.

1:10:011:10:05

And to find one place in particular.

1:10:051:10:12

Now, this isn't exactly

the place I was looking for,

1:10:191:10:21

but it's perfect for a pit stop.

1:10:211:10:23

This is a British pier,

and you can tell it's British

1:10:231:10:26

because there's a fish and chip shop

at the start...

1:10:261:10:30

..In the middle...

1:10:301:10:31

And, in case you missed the first

two, there is one at the end.

1:10:311:10:35

This still remains the most popular

landmark in Brighton.

1:10:351:10:37

Perfect for some holiday snaps.

1:10:371:10:40

# I came in like a wrecking ball.

1:10:461:10:50

# I never hit so hard in love.

1:10:501:10:58

Gorgeous.

1:11:001:11:01

Anyways, just a stone's throw away

from the famous pier and beach

1:11:011:11:04

is the heart of the old fishing

village, otherwise

1:11:041:11:06

known as The Lanes.

1:11:061:11:08

If only I had a stone to throw.

1:11:081:11:11

Oh.

1:11:111:11:14

See?

1:11:231:11:24

The Lanes is an historical

area of Brighton with

1:11:241:11:26

an extraordinary mix of shops.

1:11:261:11:27

From boutique to designer,

you'll find it all here.

1:11:271:11:30

But that's not what I'm here for.

1:11:301:11:33

Are you OK?

1:11:421:11:43

Yeah, I'm just trying to find a...

1:11:431:11:46

An official Brighton

tourist guide, perfect.

1:11:461:11:48

Where are we now?

1:11:481:11:49

We are at the Brighton

Royal Pavilion.

1:11:491:11:51

This was built about 200 years ago

as the seaside getaway

1:11:511:11:53

for the Prince Regent.

1:11:531:11:55

He later became King George IV.

1:11:551:11:57

Today it's Brighton's largest

historic tourist attraction.

1:11:571:12:01

You can also get married here,

and in 2014 we had the UK's jointly

1:12:011:12:05

first same-sex weddings here.

1:12:051:12:07

The LGBTQ community is quite

important Brighton, isn't it?

1:12:071:12:10

It is, it is.

1:12:101:12:12

We are said to have the larger

proportion of LGBT

1:12:121:12:14

people in Britain here.

1:12:141:12:16

Every August we have the largest

Pride event here in Brighton,

1:12:161:12:21

and we have a whole history

of people coming to Brighton

1:12:211:12:24

to enjoy a little bit more freedom.

1:12:241:12:26

This was heavily featured

in the 1974 contest.

1:12:261:12:29

And I was just wondering

if you would want to recreate

1:12:291:12:32

the Abba introduction video with me?

1:12:321:12:34

Love to.

1:12:341:12:35

All we need is charisma...

1:12:351:12:37

And...

1:12:371:12:38

An oversized plant.

1:12:381:12:41

Oh.

1:12:411:12:42

How convenient.

1:12:421:12:43

# Whoa, whoa, whoa,

whoa, Waterloo...

1:12:431:12:47

By the way, one last thing.

1:12:471:12:48

Do you happen to know

where I can find Madeira Drive?

1:12:481:12:51

Yes, it's that way.

1:12:511:12:52

That way?

1:12:521:12:54

Right.

1:12:541:12:55

Thank you.

1:12:551:12:56

Ha-ha!

1:13:041:13:05

Legend has it that only four years

after Abba won Eurovision,

1:13:051:13:08

Brighton celebrated with a perfect

gift to the Swedes - Britain's first

1:13:081:13:11

nudist beach popped up.

1:13:111:13:15

This is that beach,

and being from a country

1:13:151:13:20

who loves to get naked,

I thought I'd take

1:13:201:13:22

the opportunity for a dip.

1:13:221:13:23

Now, you never saw Katie Boyle

doing this, did you?

1:13:231:13:30

You'll have to watch a sequel!

I'm

so sorry. I actually got you a

1:13:371:13:43

present, some Brighton Rock. That's

nice, isn't it?

It's likely tastes

1:13:431:13:54

of dog wee. That was a mistake. The

fact I know it tastes of dog wee is

1:13:541:14:00

worrying. I will put the rock next

to me in the taxi home, and forget

1:14:001:14:03

it.

1:14:031:14:05

Listen up - the vote is now closed.

1:14:051:14:07

That's it.

1:14:071:14:08

Please don't try to vote

now as it won't count

1:14:081:14:10

and you may still be charged.

1:14:101:14:12

Now your votes will be combined

with the jury's vote,

1:14:121:14:14

and then we'll have our winner!

1:14:141:14:20

CHEERING

1:14:201:14:25

Tom, we have heard quite a

difference in music styles tonight.

1:14:251:14:29

What does that say about modern

Eurovision?

I think it is fantastic.

1:14:291:14:34

This year is a very strong

collection overall. In the past,

1:14:341:14:38

Eurovision has a bad reputation when

it comes to songs, this year is

1:14:381:14:42

really strong. You could hear so

many of those songs on the radio

1:14:421:14:46

today, so shout out to the song

writers.

Absolutely. Rylan, how

1:14:461:14:51

would you think Eurovision has

changed Andy Boulton? -- Andy

1:14:511:14:58

Boulton?

Lots of people look at it

as a gimmick and lots of people who

1:14:581:15:02

do not know Eurovision take the

Mickey out of it. We know it is very

1:15:021:15:07

serious.

CHEERING

1:15:071:15:08

For me, personally,

1:15:081:15:15

For me, personally, it was... Sweden

do it right, every single year, but

1:15:151:15:18

she was the game changer, for me.

That is what we need to do. Britain

1:15:181:15:22

needs to send our very own person

like Mans to bring it home back to

1:15:221:15:29

the country where it deserves to be.

Rachelle, how do you think the

1:15:291:15:34

artists are feeling?

I am sure they

are probably very nervous, not as

1:15:341:15:38

nervous as before they perform. It

is an exciting night, really, really

1:15:381:15:42

exciting. I have caught up with some

of them backstage and they are

1:15:421:15:46

thrilled to be had, it is a great

platform. Rylan is a super fan of

1:15:461:15:49

every single one of them.

1:15:491:15:56

every single one of them.

I am so

happy to be out of the house!

What

1:15:561:15:59

can we have from the three of you,

your favourite all time ever

1:15:591:16:01

Eurovision song?

Abba.

Waterloo?

Abba.

Waterloo began.

Mine would

1:16:011:16:16

probably be heroes by Mans.

What

about Finland?

1:16:161:16:24

While we're counting and double

checking tonight's vote,

1:16:241:16:27

we've got a little treat for you.

1:16:271:16:31

Let's travel back in time,

44 years, to the now

1:16:311:16:33

famous Eurovision of 1974.

1:16:331:16:36

As Ceefax became the hit

new technology trend - groovy!

1:16:371:16:43

- four-time Eurovision presenter

and fashion guru Katie Boyle took

1:16:431:16:46

to the stage in the Brighton Dome

to host one of the most eventful

1:16:461:16:49

and memorable Song Contests ever.

1:16:491:16:52

Welcome to this, the 19th

Eurovision Song Contest, coming

1:16:521:16:55

to you from the Dome in Brighton.

1:16:551:16:59

Hold onto your feather wing collars

and your crocheted midi dirndls,

1:16:591:17:01

everyone, for one heck of a recap.

1:17:011:17:04

It was the year that France

withdrew and Greece debuted.

1:17:041:17:07

That's right, we are already

using rhyming couplets!

1:17:071:17:09

This stuff's just got real.

1:17:091:17:16

# La-la la-la la la-la

la la-la la la-la #.

1:17:161:17:20

Italy refused to broadcast

their own entry -

1:17:201:17:23

but "Perche?", I hear you ask.

1:17:231:17:26

An intense political

referendum was taking place

1:17:261:17:30

and they thought their song,

Si - which roughly translates as Yes

1:17:301:17:33

- would be a subliminal message...

1:17:331:17:35

# Si, dolcemente dissi si.

1:17:351:17:42

# Per provare un'emozione

che non ho avuto mai.

1:17:421:17:50

Unlike Portugal, who did

broadcast their entry and did

1:17:511:17:53

create quite a kerfuffle.

1:17:531:18:00

In fact, Paulo's song

helped to start a full-on

1:18:001:18:02

revolution in Portugal.

1:18:021:18:03

Let's have a blast of

this anarchist entry.

1:18:031:18:05

# Em silencio, amor.

1:18:051:18:07

# Em tristeza e fim.

1:18:071:18:10

Yeah, that's not exactly

what I was expecting.

1:18:101:18:15

Now, I know what you're thinking -

what happens when all 17 songs had

1:18:151:18:18

been performed and votes

were being counted?

1:18:181:18:20

That's right, they undergrounded

and overgrounded and

1:18:201:18:23

brought out the Wombles.

1:18:231:18:24

# The Wombles of

Wimbledon Common are we.

1:18:241:18:28

# Making good use of

the things that we find.

1:18:281:18:32

# Things that the everyday

folks leave behind #.

1:18:321:18:37

Now Ireland may have

produced the show-stopping

1:18:371:18:39

Riverdance 20 years later,

but it's quite clear

1:18:391:18:42

where they actually got

their inspiration from.

1:18:421:18:44

# And remember you're a Womble.

1:18:441:18:46

# Remember you're a womble #.

1:18:461:18:49

And now we come to the obvious

highlight of the 1974 contest.

1:18:491:18:54

Abba first tried to represent Sweden

back in 1973 with the song Ring,

1:18:541:18:57

Ring, but somebody must have missed

that call, because they failed

1:18:571:19:00

to qualify at their

national selection show.

1:19:001:19:05

Undeterred, they came back in '74

with a cracker of an upbeat track.

1:19:051:19:09

And let's just say they

absolutely nailed it.

1:19:091:19:12

There's no doubt about it.

1:19:121:19:16

The winning song of the 1974

Eurovision Song Contest is Abba.

1:19:161:19:20

This victory catapulted Abba

to worldwide stardom

1:19:201:19:22

and legendary status.

1:19:221:19:26

So as the Swedish conductor

hilariously takes to the stage

1:19:261:19:29

in a Napoleon outfit,

let's just sit back and enjoy one

1:19:291:19:32

of the most successful

Eurovision songs of all time.

1:19:321:19:40

# My, my, at Waterloo

Napoleon did surrender.

1:19:401:19:45

# Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny

in quite a similar way.

1:19:451:19:53

# The history book on the shelf.

1:19:541:19:57

# Is always repeating itself.

1:19:571:20:02

# Waterloo - I was defeated,

you won the war.

1:20:021:20:08

# Waterloo - promise

to love you for ever more.

1:20:081:20:15

# Waterloo - couldn't

escape if I wanted to.

1:20:151:20:22

# Waterloo - knowing my

fate is to be with you.

1:20:221:20:26

# Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

1:20:261:20:28

# Waterloo - finally

facing my Waterloo.

1:20:281:20:36

# My, my, I tried to hold you back

but you were stronger.

1:20:381:20:44

# Oh yeah, and now it seems my only

chance is giving up the fight.

1:20:441:20:52

# So how could I ever refuse?

1:20:521:20:56

# I feel like I win when I lose.

1:20:561:21:00

# Waterloo - I was defeated,

you won the war.

1:21:001:21:07

# Waterloo - promise

to love you for ever more.

1:21:071:21:15

# Waterloo - couldn't

escape if I wanted to.

1:21:151:21:20

# Waterloo - knowing my

fate is to be with you.

1:21:201:21:26

# Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

1:21:261:21:29

# Waterloo - finally

facing my Waterloo.

1:21:291:21:35

# So how could I ever refuse?

1:21:351:21:37

# I feel like I win when I lose.

1:21:371:21:45

# Waterloo - couldn't

escape if I wanted to.

1:21:451:21:48

# Waterloo - knowing my

fate is to be with you.

1:21:481:21:52

# Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

1:21:521:21:53

# Waterloo - finally

facing my Waterloo.

1:21:531:21:59

# Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh.

1:21:591:22:01

# Waterloo - knowing my

fate is to be with you.

1:22:011:22:04

# Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

1:22:041:22:07

# Waterloo - finally

facing my Waterloo #.

1:22:071:22:09

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

1:22:091:22:17

Guys, I don't say it again, this is

the actual stage where Abba stood

1:22:271:22:33

can still see the imprint of the

platform boots!

1:22:331:22:38

Some wonderful images

from the Eurovision of 1974

1:22:381:22:40

ending of course with Abba

winning the contest.

1:22:401:22:46

And that was the last time

we mention Abba in this

1:22:461:22:49

show, I guarantee you.

1:22:491:22:50

Enough!

1:22:501:22:51

Absolutely!

1:22:511:22:52

Because tonight we've asked

you to spend some money, money,

1:22:521:22:54

money and give us a ring,

ring to say thank you for the music

1:22:541:22:58

to your favorite super trouper that

may fly to Lisbon where hopefully

1:22:581:23:01

the winner takes it all.

1:23:011:23:03

Please. Stop that.

Yes.

1:23:031:23:07

I do, I do, I do, I do.

1:23:071:23:10

Now, let's thank our

incredible performers -

1:23:101:23:13

you should all be very proud

of what you've achieved tonight!

1:23:131:23:17

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

So well done and very good luck.

1:23:171:23:24

We've seen six superb acts perform

six beautifully crafted songs

1:23:241:23:26

from awesome song writers.

1:23:261:23:31

And now we are all wondering the

same thing.

What will San Marino

1:23:311:23:37

send this year?

Always on our minds.

But who will win tonight?

1:23:371:23:48

They've done all they possibly can,

so now there's nothing left

1:23:481:23:51

to do but find out how

you and the jury have voted,

1:23:511:23:54

and just who the winner representing

the UK at Eurovision 2018 is...

1:23:541:23:58

There is a little bit of sweat

building up in the jacket!

1:23:581:24:02

Bit of tension, please.

1:24:021:24:06

We've counted, verified

and added together the scores

1:24:061:24:11

from our professional jury

here and you at home.

1:24:111:24:14

Now let's find out who got the most

votes and will compete in Lisbon.

1:24:141:24:22

The winner of Eurovision: You Decide

2018 is... SuRie!

1:24:401:24:54

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:24:541:25:01

Congratulations!

Marshalling and

herding and shepherding, too much

1:25:051:25:13

hugging! Come on, my love!

Congratulations.

Amazing. You are

1:25:131:25:27

off to Lisbon! CHEERING

You are going to represent the UK at

1:25:271:25:33

the Eurovision Song contest 2018.

How does it feel?

I... Words and

1:25:331:25:43

feelings...

1:25:431:25:48

They are shouting your name! I have

to ask you, how are you going to

1:25:481:25:54

celebrate tonight?

A bottle and a

straw, a bottle of something bubbly.

1:25:541:26:01

Shampoo? Lovely! We are all

desperate to hear your winning song

1:26:011:26:09

again. Off you go, get ready to

perform. Huge congratulations again

1:26:091:26:17

to SuRie, well done! CHEERING

1:26:171:26:22

Commiserations to everyone else,

you were all fantastic.

1:26:221:26:24

Let's give them a last

round of applause.

1:26:241:26:29

APPLAUSE

1:26:291:26:32

Yes, we can all agree we've seen

some incredible talent tonight

1:26:321:26:34

showcasing some wonderful songs,

but in the end there

1:26:341:26:36

can only be one winner.

1:26:361:26:41

Don't miss the final

of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018,

1:26:411:26:43

live from Lisbon on May 12th.

1:26:431:26:48

SuRie will compete against 25 other

countries. Are we excited about

1:26:481:26:53

that? Yes, we are! Don't miss SuRie

on Radio 2 tomorrow morning with Ken

1:26:531:27:00

Bruce. Thank you, Mans.

The pleasure

was all mine, thank you, Mel. And

1:27:001:27:07

the perfect ending to the Purbeck

night, the winner of Eurovision: You

1:27:071:27:13

Decide, SuRie!

From all others in

Brighton, good night! -- all of us.

1:27:131:27:21
