‘Eurovision: You Decide’ will hit our screens on Friday evening as viewers are bombarded by a handful of dubious musical acts eager to represent the UK at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, to be held in Tel Aviv during May. Most pundits believe that Michael Rice will win with his entry ‘Bigger Than Us’, the Hartlepool busker winning BBC’s All Together Now in 2018 with William Hill Bookmakers going 6/5 that the 21-year-old triumphs on Friday evening.
Kerrie-Anne is 11/4 second-favourite to win the right to represent her country with her up-tempo number ‘Sweet Lies’ alongside former BGT contestant Jordan Clarke who completes the top-three in the betting market at the very same odds.
Since the markets opened, some 45% of all votes have been aimed at Rice and it is clear that his familiarity to talent-show viewers will work in his favour. His song has a Eurovision feel to it and at 21 years of age, he would be the youngest UK male Eurovision entrant since the turn of the century should he succeed.
