United Kingdom – The singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, known for hits like “Murder on the Dancefloor” and “Bittersweet,” said in an interview that she would reject a proposal to go to Eurovision for fear of being humiliated. According to her, her instincts tell her not to do this, as she thinks it is too risky. “The UK is not popular in Eurovision and it’s not all about the song”, Sophie added.
Years of Terry Wogan’s mockery and bad press seem to bear fruit.
