Eurovision: You Decide, the national song selection show for the UK's entry will air on Friday 27th January from the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith.
The end of January will give us, the viewers, a chance to vote again for the UK’s entry for the Eurovison this year.
The show, hosted by Bake Off’s Mel Giedroyc, will air on BBC Two and take place on Friday 27th January 2017 live from the world-famous Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith.
After a nationwide search, the 90-minute show will feature performances of six brand new songs. The performers will take to the stage with the hope of doing justice to the songs, and in a bid to impress both the viewers at home and a professional panel.
They will compete for the honour of representing the United Kingdom at the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine. The winner will be revealed on the night after a live public vote.
A panel of 3 experts will be on hand to provide insight and their thoughts about the songs and the artists, and how they could translate to the big arena in Ukraine.
The six competing songs will be revealed on Monday 23 January on The Ken Bruce Show on BBC Radio 2 and will also be available via the official BBC Eurovision site.
Presenter, Mel Giedroyc said: “I am positively giddy for Eurovision 2017 and chuffed that Eurovision: You Decide is back! I’ve been hearing great things about the standard of the songs this year and I just wish January would hurry up so that I can hear the songs and meet the performers! We’ve got an even bigger venue, exciting guest performers and a brilliant expert panel. It’s going to be great.”
