In the lead-up to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, BBC Radio 2 will be presenting a special Eurovision segment where the Top 20 winning entries, as voted for by the public, will be revealed.
Celebrating 60 years of the Eurovision Song Contest, Ken Bruce will present a week’s worth of special Eurovision segments as part of his morning show. Starting from Monday 18 May up to Friday 22 May, Ken will present the Top 20 winners of all time as voted for by the public ahead of his live broadcast from Vienna on Saturday 23 May during the Grand Final.
Voting is currently open and everyone is eligible to vote for their all-time favourite winner. From Lys Assia to Conchita Wurst, all of the winners feature on the list and you can vote here via the bbc.co.uk website. Voting closes on midday (BST) on Monday 20 April. Ken Bruce’s radio show takes place every weekday from 09:30 BST (10:30 CEST).
Earlier this month, it was also revealed that Radio 2 Eurovision, the special digital pop-up service, would also be making a return during this year’s competition. From Thursday 21 May to Sunday 24 May, Radio 2 Eurovision will present a number of shows during its 4-day broadcast and will feature many Eurovision related guests, including former UK commentator Terry Wogan and 1993 British runner-up Sonia.
This year, the United Kingdom will be represented by Electro Velvet with their entry Still in love with you.
