Can Jade do better than last place? Yep that is where we came in last years competition, in fact not since 2002 have we been placed in the top ten. We came 3rd back then with Come Back sung by Jessica Garlick, where is she now I wonder? I’ll have to consult Anna Kirk an authority on the contest. Oh and in case you were wondering it was back in 1997 when we last won with Love Shine a Light – thanks for that Katrina.
I believe the identical twins, Nicola and Francine were popular among die hard Eurovision fans, but at the end of the day it was Jade who won the public vote (and surely they know best!). The song she will be signing, composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber is “My Time”, prophetic title one hopes. And encouragingly Jade has the support of a previous winner, Lulu, who said Jade “ticks all the boxes, and Jade has got the whole package” so surely a winner.
So here is wishing Jade all the best of luck come 16th May (put it in your diary – you know you want to), and trust me she will need lots and lots of luck given the ridiculous political voting behaviour seen in recent years.
