One of the most followed countries at the Eurovision Song Contest is surely the United Kingdom following a renewed interest by the British Broadcasting Corporation in recent years due to the fact that the renowned musical event has continued to grow even in terms of impact within the actual worldwide music industry. It seems that the British tabloids have been out to uncover the act that will ultimately do the honour and follow in the footsteps of Blue and have indeed come up with quite a couple of names but according to unconfirmed news, it seems that the decision will be announced quite soon with the act being none other than The Sugababes.
The choice might not be at all unrealistic although unexpected as was the case with the Blue, the British boy-band who took to the stage in Dusseldorf, Germany. There has been renewed interest from artists in the United Kingdom with four allegedly throwing their hat into the ring hoping that they would ultimately be chosen. These included none other than; Joe McElderry who won the X Factor as well as Popstar to Operastar; Stacey Solomon who finished third in the same season of the X Factor; Melanie C who found fame first as a member of the Spice Girls and then as a soloist and last but not least; Atomic Kitten who have been performed on again, off again for the past couple of years. Nevertheless, the Sugababes seem to be the number 1 choice of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) at this stage but one should never count their chickens before they hatch because the first case scenario in 2011 included the stunning Hurts' but then in a quick change of heart, Blue were contracted instead. It will be quite interesting if this is the fact as Jade Ewen, now one of the trio represented the United Kingdom in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'It's My Time'.
