Blue claim they were the victims of political voting during Saturday night’s Eurovision Song Contest.
The band – made up of Duncan James, Lee Ryan, Antony Costa and Simon Webbe – came 11th as they represented the UK with their song ‘I Can’ at the event in Germany but believe they would have finished higher if countries had voted for the performance rather than their neighbours.
Simon said: “It is often not really about the song but who your neighbours are. But we are proud of what we did.” However, former manager of Blue, Daniel Glatman, criticised the boy band for entering the contest in the first place. “They have gone from being a massive boyband who sold 14 million records to the band who flopped at Eurovision,” he said.
Following their disappointment, Duncan, Lee and Simon stayed up until 6am, drinking Jaegermeister, champagne and vodka Red Bulls while Antony was so gutted he went straight to bed.
Blue are behaving as if they didn’t know what Eurovision was all about before entering the competition. Eurovision is about cheesy Pop tunes, mediocre vocals and countries voting for their neighbours. It’s not to be taken seriously. So why are they surprised they lost???
You all wanted to enjoy major success as a boy band again (circa 2000-2005), but entering Eurovision definitely wasn’t the way to go.
“we are proud of what we did.”
Proud of what exactly? You didn’t win and finished in 11th place.
