UK's Blue get the backing of Robbie Williams & Sir Cliff Richard

Robbie Williams says "Bring it on Home.." just hours before BBC broadcast the Blue documentary tonight. That will show how the Blue boys, reformed and were choosen to sing for UK in Dusseldorf. It is rare that UK does not have a 'selection process to choose an artist -or the song for Eurovision. In fact this is the first time an internal song and artist has been made at BBC, while over in Switzerland they have done this for most of their entries recently. In 2011 - Switzerland reverted back to the National Song contest Final selection perhapes due to the poor placing in last few years. For the past four years not even making the Eurovision final.
They have Anna Rossinelli with a caughty melody called 'In love for a while' - she has been considered to be almost like Lena Meyer-Landrut's older sister in style.
I think this will see Switzerland back in the running.

Blue- the boyband success story began in May 2001 with No 4 hit 'All Rise'
Simon Webbe, Lee Ryan, Duncan James & Antony Costa became quickly Britians top band of the time. With all 3 albums becoming No: 1 platinum sellersin UK as well as a string of hit singles, including a duet with Elton John on his classic 'Sorry seems to be the hardest word'
The vocal power of the four guys always blend together so well with a fantastic blend of R&B
Pop crossover to the music. However in 2005, they seem to quit while they were ahead- and each went on a solo career path... parting with the words 'we'll be back- '
The bands comeback has been on the card for last couple of years, so Eurovision 2011 was the very perfect timing for Blue All four guys each seem to be 100% behind taking UK
to a long awaited victory in Europe, for different reasons. Certainly judging by Blue's past sales record not since 1970's have UK had such a big artist singing for them.
The song seems to say it all
'I can'
