UK: The Rumours Start!

united kingdom UKUK – A day after the BBC confirmed its national selection process, Twitter gave us our first rumours of who some of the 6 UK acts could be. Tweeted and deleted relatively quickly were the names of  Nicholas McDonald possibly with a song called ‘Beautiful Life‘ and Jessica Wright with a song called ‘Heartache at the Disco‘. Other names being mentioned are Liss Jones (Voice 2015) and Michael Rice ( X Factor 2014).

Nicky McDonald, from Scotland, came 2nd in the 2013 UK XFactor when he was only 16 years old and had a number 6 album the year after… on RCA… the label tasked with finding some of the entrants.

Also today, Stephen Jones , a talent scout posted the following on Facebook:


Stephen has worked as a Talent Consultant behind-the-scenes on seven series of Simon Cowell’s The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent where numerous artists he has helped uncover have reached the final live shows — several of whom have gone on to sign to major record labels including Sony’s RCA, Epic and Syco Records and enjoy chart success. Stephen has also previously been a judge, on a Song For Europe (Eurovision UK entry)

The 6 finalists, chosen by 3 different routes, will be revealed on Friday 22nd January on the Ken Bruce Radio 2 show between 9.30am and 12.00 noon where we will find out if any of the rumours so far are true. Usually they’re not!
