UK – It’s only been a few days since the BBC made the exciting announcement that the public would be involved in this year’s UK selection, but already people have thrown their hat into the ring… including Jedward! Speaking to the Irish Sun, Edward Grimes of the Irish 2011 and 2012 representatives said,
“We’re definitely up for it. We see this as the most fantastic opportunity. But this time, we are in it to win it.”
His twin John added,
“We know we are already popular in Eurovision and will have support across Britain to represent the UK because of the fan base we got in X Factor.”
Also quick out of the traps was Leigh Luscious who has started her campaign to be the UK’s representative.
Also spotted was an interesting tweet by Team Midas:
According to his website Dean ‘Midas’ Maynard established Team Midas to PR & Promote some of the country’s most talented singers, bands and performers. Many have enjoyed exposure on shows such as The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Voice. Having built up vital industry networks, his reputation for integrity and hard work is why performers continue to put their faith and trust in him. He is currently promoting Louisa Johnson, Kiera Weathers, Josh Daniel , Alien & Hannah Marie Kilminster in this year’s UK Factor.
Meanwhile OGE UK members were invited to enter a ballot to win a place on part of the shortlisting process. The deadline to enter the ballot was 29th September. The BBC want a diverse panel from around the country and people of different ages. Good luck everyone who entered!
