UK – Tonight is the night that 6 UK acts take part in a live national final, Eurovision: You Decide, at the O2 Forum Kentish Town. The show will be broadcast on BBC4, and will be hosted by British Bake Off presenter Mel Giedroyc.
The 6 acts are:

Act 2: Bianca ‘Shine a little light‘
Act 3: Dulcima ‘When you go‘
Act 4: Matthew James ‘A better man‘
Act 5: Darline ‘Until tomorrow‘

Eurovision Times readers have been voting in a poll and have Darline as their favourite.
The six shortlisted acts have been chosen from three different routes of entry:
- Public submission
- Submissions to BASCA (the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors)
- British Music Industry consultant Hugh Goldsmith, former MD of RCA and founder of Innocent Records.
The BBC invited the UK branch of the OGAE to assist in the shortlisting of the entries sent in by the public. The OGAE is the largest independent Eurovision fan club in the world and its UK branch has around 1,000 members.
