Andy Abraham finished joint last and was Wogan’s wildcard choice at the UK final. Wogan said,” "It's a disappointment, considering that Andy Abraham gave, I think, the performance of his life with a song that certainly deserved more marks than it got. You have to say that this is no longer a music contest." He continued “"Western European participants have to decide whether they want to take part from here on in, because their prospects are poor."
He also gave a hint about his own future, “"I have to decide whether I want to do this again. I'm afraid nobody loves the UK, it just isn't funny anymore."
