Britain's rocky Eurovision relationship is rekindled by unlikely boyband battle

13 May 2011 5:11 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jedward and Blue among favourites to win contest, and are set to cash in despite tacky traditions

It is loved and derided in equal measure – a festival of terrible fashion, Euro power-ballads, unlikely rap numbers and ill-advised dance routines. But Britain's rocky relationship with Eurovision could be rekindled this year by a boyband well past their sell-by date and a certain pair of Irish twins with gravity-defying hair.

The bookies certainly think so – Blue and Jedward are among the top five favourites to win – and there are strong hopes that, after a disappointing 2010 competition, the unlikely entries will bring a turnaround in fortunes.

Last year the UK's entry narrowly avoided "nul points" to finish at the very bottom of the leaderboard, and ratings for the BBC's coverage of the show fell in the face of competition from Britain's Got Talent, so there is much resting on the shoulders – and hair – of this year's contestants. »
