United Kingdom: Walsh Tipped for Eurovision

United Kingdom is well represented in the Eurovision Song Contest through the British Broadcasting Corporation and considering that they are known to presenting high quality showcases throughout the year, one would anticipate a more intriguing approach towards the international competition but their results have not been positive in recent years noting their disappointment last year with Engelbert Humperdinck and his entry Love Will Set You Free which had followed an eleventh place finish with the group Blue and their entry I Can. We have received a very secure tip this year, that the broadcaster has sought the services of the production team behind the reality television show; Strictly Come Dancing and that could prove to be successful considering the amount of vocal artists they have managed to contract in recent years.

Nevertheless, the focus is seemingly turned towards one performer in particular; Kimberley Walsh who is a member of the renowned group known as Girls Aloud who following an extended break returned at the end of 2012 to launch their ten year anniversary with a Greatest Hits compilation and a brand new single entitled Something New which rose to number #2 in the Charts. It is important to note that following the solo success of Cheryl Cole and the extremely mild success of Nadine Coyle, another member has just signed a record deal and that is indeed Kimberley Walsh who now has a record contract with Decca, a subsidiary of Universal Music which also features internationally renowned tenor; Joseph Calleja and former X Factor winner; Joe McElderry. 

Whilst rumours of a possible song have also surfaced, our tip did not go into great length and as a matter of fact, two tracks on her upcoming debut album release slated for the 4th February are co-written by Fredrik Kempe and Sharon Vaughn, both of whom have presented a number of songs to the continental competition including Waterline (Ireland 2012), Popular (Sweden 2011), La Voix (Sweden 2009), Hero (Sweden 2008). These tracks bear the name You First Loved Me and Dreams Can Learn to Fly and they clock in at 3:11 and 3:27 respectively, making the former more of a possibility than the latter and could be heard in the preview below at 4:30 respectively. The last time that the United Kingdom ranked in the top ten at the Eurovision Song Contest was in 2009 with Jade Ewen and her entry It's My Time. Stay tuned to for more on this story in the coming hours and days.
