“I can is a typical Blue song, solid pop, very catchy and definately a contendor for victory come May. Unfortunately I think the verses are even better than the chorus which is a bid odd, but otherwise a good entry that puts the UK back on track (finally)”

  1. For the first time since Katrina and the Waves, we have an entry that could win!

    This is the first year since Katrina that we have had an act that we know can sing live in front of thousands in the audience and millions on TV without being psyched out, know how to perform a piece of choreography and have a song that is catchy – we have a strong chance this year!

    Makes a change from the usual dross we’ve been sending over the last few years (Jade McEwan excepted)….

  2. Talk good or bad the important is that you talk about them: BLUE!
    The first time I heard Blue music I realized it has been so long since I was sincerly and purely impressed by somebody’s voice.I love listen to them cause it becomes any time I do a 3 dimensional experience…!!
    Don’t you just love when artists put their hearts in their songs?
    I adore Blue music.

  3. Great entry for United Kingdom this year. I hope that they will do well in Germany when the final takes place. They deserve a good placing in the final scoring. Top 10 for sure. Top 5 would be brilliant. Winning would make me so happy – I’ll be there cheering them on.

  4. 12 points to UK from Germany. That´s the best music in this Eurovision. C´mon Europe… BLUE AND UK DESERVE TO WIN !!!!!!!!!
