United Kingdom: A Song for Justin!

by Russell Davies 49 views

Tonight in the UK Chanel FIVE will be showing Justin Lee Collins attempt to participate in 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo. Rather than singing for the United Kingdom, Justin has taken the challenge of representing another country in the contest.


In his search to find a suitable country, Justin consided a number of different possibilities and has visited Estonia, Andorra and Spain to explore the possibility of taking in part in their national finals. A camera crew from Tiger Aspect have been recording Justin's efforts for a special documentary to be shown on Channel FIVE at 22:00 (GMT).

In the first part of two shows we see Justin Lee Collins, a top TV personality in the UK, attempts to enter the Eurovision Song Contest for any country that will have him. He travels across the continent trying to convince various nations that he's their man to win the contest in Norway in May 2010. He sings on Estonian breakfast TV, he begs Andorra to accept him on national radio, and suffers outright rejection in Spain. Exhausted and dejected, it all comes down to the Irish Eurovision delegation and the moment they publish this years selection criteria. JLC is with Dana in Dublin when he hears the news: they will accept foreign singers. He's in – now all he needs is a song.

A SONG FOR JUSTIN! can be see tonight on Channel FIVE at 22:00 (GMT)
