Pre-Contest Vote 2014: United Kingdom

Well this is it! Welcome to the last summary article in ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2014! If you haven’t heard about it and how this entire system will work, feel free to click this fabulous link to take you to the ‘Launch Page’ of the competition. As we manage to compile more and more of these articles, they will be added to the Launch Page, so you can freely hop between all competing 37 entries! Right, shall we get onto the last country?

The UK is the last country in our Pre-Contest Vote!
The UK is the last country in our Pre-Contest Vote!

This is how we’re running this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 37 entries for this year:

  • We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2014 (Armenia is first, Latvia is second etc). We’ll do two articles a day.
  • We’ll refer back to the Song Presentation or NF Review of the song. We’ll provide you with the video so you can have a listen (if you haven’t managed to listen to it yet…which is highly unlikely!)
  • We’ll also give you a few words from both of us while giving the song a score out of 12.
  • Finally, there’ll be a poll below for you guys to vote and give us your points on the song!

Got it? 🙂

Well, we’ve finally made it to the last Pre-Contest Introducing article! And who are we missing – the United Kingdom! After however many years of sending ‘has-beens’ to the Contest and not really taking the show quite too seriously, the BBC has finally copped onto what the fans have been asked and this year, the UK is sending Molly Smitten-Downes, or just Molly for short. In Denmark, she’ll be singing her anthemic pop-ballad ‘Children of the Universe’. If you haven’t heard it, have a listen below!

Our opinions:

Rory – I have never been so excited at the prospect of the Eurovision Song Contest coming anywhere near both James and I in my entire life. I have loved Molly and the song ever since I first saw them and every day, I regularly have to listen to it, so I think for sure, the UK are definitely in with a shot this year..let’s just hope the viewers are just as enthusiastic as we, the Eurovision fans, are! Score: 12 points out of 12.

James – I got goosebumps when I first heard this – not because it’s a hit-for-six home run of a song, but because we, the United Kingdom, have sent something to Eurovision which won’t embarrass us, for once. Whatever Molly’s result, I’m glad we can walk away with our heads held high, and a great song to listen to. And this is coming from the single most unpatriotic Brit to have ever lived. Score: 10 points of 12.

So now that you know what we think of the British song, what do you think of it? Tell us by voting in the poll!

Did you vote? Well later on this week, we’ll know how many of you fans love/like/hate the UK’s song!

So, as this is the last day of the polls opening, we’ll be starting to accumulate all your votes and convert them into the MelFest score system we planned to do in the Launch Page. If you want more on the details, click the “fabulous link” at the top of the article and you can find out more there! Expect a snazzy video soon!

If you’d like to share your opinions on the UK’s song, please feel free to comment below or vote in the poll!
