The UK's Eurovision entry Josh Dubovie
UK Eurovision hopeful Josh Dubovie has admitted that he is under pressure to do well at the contest following Jade Ewen's success at last year's event.

The 19-year-old singer confessed that he has a hard act to follow after Ewen secured fifth place and 173 points with 'It's My Time' last May - Britain's best result in seven years.

Speaking to Inside Soap about Ewen's legacy, Dubovie commented: "I am under a little bit of pressure, but the only thing I can do is my best. I think as a country all we can do is support our act and see what happens.

"All the other countries have got their own opinions, and the voting system changed last year [to include juries]. I think we did very well then, so I hope I can follow in Jade's footsteps."

Dubovie was also asked whether he has made plans for the future after seeing Ewen land a post-Eurovision career in Sugababes.

He said: "Well, I think I'm probably not best suited to being in the Sugababes. They get through members at an alarming rate, though, so it's bound to be my turn soon! I've got complete tunnel vision at the moment, I'm completely focused on Eurovision - but who knows what may happen afterwards, especially if I end up doing well?"

The Eurovision Song Contest final takes place in Norway on Saturday and will see Dubovie performing the Pete Waterman-penned 'That Sounds Good To Me'.

Video: Jay Sean Hits the Studio with Birdman

The buzz about R&B sensation Jay Sean's next album has begun and the singer is hard at work on his project. To add to all the hype Jay Sean has released footage from the Miami Hit Factory today. The singer keeps tweeting about his time in the studio working on his album so it makes sense that he sends footage from his work session. One of his latest tweets said "It's nearly 3am and we just finished at the studio. Another siiiiick track done!!! Braaaap! I'm laying it down for u my peeps! we comin!"

We all know that when Jay Sean shares footage with his fans he never fails to entertain them. The artist's humor leaves fans eager to watch any video with him in it. While he is not all laughs in this video Jay is laid back and is hanging out with co-founder of Cash Money Records, rapper Birdman. The two talk about his next album and they both even send a shout out to U.K.'s acclaimed photographers, Amit & Naroop.

Besides doing a photo shoot with Jay Sean the photographers have shot Britain's leading girl group Sugababes amongst other a-list artists. Naroop also happens to be Jay's brother. So it looks like Jay Sean isn't the only one with talent in the family and it's cool that Birdman recognizes it!

Jay Sean has had one heck of a year. Late 2009 he released his single "Down" which hit the number one spot on the Billboard Chart. Hopefully his hard work will pay off and he will be able to repeat the same magic on his next album. Are you excited to hear Jay's new tracks? Drop us a line.
