Sugababes' Jade Ewen to be Eurovision judge By Tom Bryant 6/03/2010
Singer Jade Ewen, who came fifth in last year's Eurovision Song Contest before joining the Sugababes, will help judge hopefuls for the UK's 2010 entry.
Four solo singers, one all-girl trio and a five-piece group will perform live for the chance to compete at the contest in Norway in May.
Jade will join a panel including Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli and record producer Pete Waterman, with the winner decided by a public vote.
Waterman is producing this year's song together with his long-time hit-making collaborator Mike Stock.
The BBC's Eurovision commentator Graham Norton said: "If any man can second guess European musical tastes surely that man is Pete Waterman. I can't wait to get to Oslo and see the competition.
Fingers crossed we can build on last year's success."
Waterman said: "Myself and Mike Stock are proud to be involved."
