BBC Radio 2 wants to know your favourite UK Eurovision entry

As the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool gets closer, Radio 2 wants to know which UK entry is your favourite.

A special vote to discover Your Ultimate UK Eurovision Song has been launched by the station, with the results revealed in a countdown chart hosted by Steve Wright.

You can cast up to five votes for your favourite songs of all the UK entrants that have competed in the Eurovision final since our first entry back in 1957 (with the exception of the cancelled 2020 contest and the 2023 entry). The vote closes at 11pm on Tuesday 11 April.

The countdown will be presented by Steve Wright on Radio 2 on Saturday 13 May, 1-3pm, ahead of the Eurovision Grand Final later that evening. It will also be available available on BBC Sounds from Monday 24 April.

Steve says: “Radio 2’s listener vote features all the UK Eurovision songs the British public has never been able to vote for before, because we aren’t allowed to vote for our own entry… until now!

“There’s bound to be a tough competition, with more drama than a key change in the final chorus, but we’ll finally discover the nation’s favourite ever UK Eurovision song! So cast your votes now and let’s get the Eurovision party started.”

Helen Thomas, Head of Radio 2, says: “Radio 2 is presenting a feast of coverage to celebrate Eurovision 2023, and as our listeners are huge Eurovision fans, we can’t wait to find out which song will be voted their all-time favourite UK entry.

“With a wealth of incredible performances from across the decades, this vote is a perfect opportunity for us to celebrate some of the music and memories that have made Eurovision such an iconic event.”
