United Kingdom: Eurovision – Jade's story

by Gavin Murray 60 views

With the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 fast approaching, the BBC are to air a special half hour programme tracing Jade Ewen's story from winning the national selection You're Country Needs You through to her forthcoming appearance in Moscow, Russia.

From the excitement and emotion of winning Your Country Needs You, this programme follows Jade and captures her amazement as she spends the day after her win with her family, before being whisked off to Malta to sing live on their Eurovision show in a vast arena, just a couple of days later.

Graham Norton guides viewers through Jade's journey on a whirl of interviews, TV appearances, recording studios, stylists, behind the scenes at the shooting of her music video and numerous TV appearances all over Europe.

With Moscow looming, does Jade have what it takes to make it at the biggest non-sporting event in the world? Along the way there's help from Andrew Lloyd Webber, coaching from Arlene Phillips and even advice – and some words of warning – from previous winners Lulu and Katrina. So with the hopes of the nation resting on her shoulders in the vast Olympiysky Stadium in Moscow, and in front of over 100 million TV viewers, will Jade be able to claim It's My Time?

Eurovision – Jade's story will air on BBC ONE television at 19:20 CET (18:20 local time) on Saturday May 16th. UK residents can watch the show here.

Also for viewers of BBC ONE tonight in the UK, Jade will perform her Eurovision Song Contest entry It's My Time during the National Lottery show at 23:35 CET (22:35 local time.) UK residents can watch the show here.
