It is not common that a Eurovision Song Contest winner makes it to the UK chart – or that their own participant does. Both Alexander Rybak and Jade Ewen made it – together with the official album with all 42 participating songs.
Diane Warren, award winning songwriter, and composer and lyricist of the United Kingdom's song for Moscow, It's My Time, took time out of her busy schedule to answer questions exclusively for EuroVisionary.
Two shows down, two to go. Your Country Needs You is halfway through and so far, it’s all positive. The show looks fresher than the UK selection show of previous years, there’s a new frontman (hurrah!) in Graham Norton and, more importantly, there is genuine optimism about the end result.
I always get excited at the prospect of the forthcoming Eurovision at about this time every year. I usually try to suppress it, but it never works! It's hard not to get excited when you hear that Diane Warren will pen the UK entry.
