Following a series of mixed fortunes at Eurovision in recent years today the BBC confirmed it's internal selection this year focussed on the new music strand BBC Introducing and named newcomer Molly as their choice for Copenhagen.
Following a rather mysterious announcement via Twitter earlier tonight, the BBC have revealed that for the first time since 1994, they have made an internal selection in choosing the United Kingdom entry for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.
Not much information about the selection procedure BBC will choose this year is available. We know that Pete Waterman will write the British entry, but more than that is just pure speculations. Now it appears like a date might be known though as Alexander Rybak has mentioned it in his calendar.
This year, the BBC showed Europe that actually, they and the United Kingdom do take the Eurovision Song Contest seriously. They persuaded Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, possibly the biggest name in musical theatre, to write the song and head a talent search for the winner.
