  1. I am mostly scared of that than hopeful tbh…

  2. Background info, I love Mel and I know she and her partner are big fans of Eurovision, she has been the face of the most famous TV show in UK of all time called “Great British bake off” (see wikepedia), due to financial reasons that show got switched next year to another channel, (UK channel 4) but Mel wanted to stay with the BBC for many reasons, especially about ESC and her commitment to it and BBC and as above

  3. can’t say how good the UK would be but we are following the same type of final it seems!

  4. am guessing she’d be hoping for a better kind of final! :-)

  5. saara alto just like the other X factor name

  6. to decide on January 27th at least for me is a first via UK (never heard that before) , that’s a good sign, so let’s see from there on!
