UK NEWS: BOY BAND BLUE BLAME POLITICS FOR EUROVISION FAILURE

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.

  1. Eurovision is and has always been a complete fix. Terry Wogan even said that The UK would never win it while the eastern European countries always vote for thier neighbours. I suposse we’ll have to settle for being the second most successful mucical country in history then.

  2. Hey.. Blue Guys,don’t feel so sorry for losing Eurovision,the whole entire of the world knew that you are a great, great boy band and good looking lads too, you have to move on. Losing with that kind of contest, has a political involvement is not really really important. The most important is that now, you are back together. Do lots of albums, and concert tours around the world. Billions of your fans are waiting for you, like me. Love you Guys, cheer up!

  3. I’ve listened “I Can” for many many times, and i went on Youtube to hear lots of songs by other countries in the contestant, including the winner. But for me, Blue is the best, they do not deserve the 11th place, in my opinion, people were just out of minds during the voting!
