Bearforce 1- Are ready to lift off ..... All the way to Baku 2012 !



Last year at Dusseldorf Eurovision 2011 we had Blue- comeback to represent UK with 'I Can' this must have inspired another boyband to reform with a bid for Netherlands 2012.
Ok certainly Bearforce 1 are not as well known as our Blue lads! Yet Bearforce1 have certainly made international name for themselves as being the world's first gay-bear man-band, they even had minor hits downunder in Australia. The band's tracks get regular airplay on Melbourne's 94.6 JOY Fm check out

-This great Dance Medley of anthems like I Feel Love / You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) / Boys Boys Boys / Respectable / Don't Go / You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) on one track

Bearforce Anthem (what a grrrr -clip) from 2008.

The four bears have comeback together to be part of The Netherlands Nationaal Songfestival competition 26th February 2012 with a tune called 'Action Man' they have a secret weapon for this journey to represent their home land Holland. In the songwriters - Dimitri Stassos who has written the 2009 Spanish entry- but wait there's more.......schlager-writer Gerard James Borg who penned dozens of National Final songs in Malta -his most successful being a 2nd placed 'Seventh Wonder' by Ira Losco at Eurovision 2002.
However Borg is better remembered for entries like 'On Again..Off again' (2004) 'Desire' (2000) & 'Vertigo' (2007) as well a tune we luv although it did not qualify back in 2003 at
the Dutch Nationaal Songfestival 'Heatwave' Ebonique.

We are excited and can't wait to hear 'Action Man' and could the bears lift off their shirts and bring Netherlands back to the Eurovision Final in 2012 let's see- Meanwhile check out a interesting ESCtoday interview with Bearforce1

Vote for Yuri - send him to baku 2012
