The British national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 was held tonight. Six acts competed in the final of Your country needs you! 2010. After qualifying for the second round of tonight's final thanks to the verdict of the jury, the televote has decided that Josh will represent the United Kingdom in Oslo with the song That sounds good to me, composed by Pete Waterman.
Josh has won the public televote and hence will represent the United Kingdom in Oslo. Firstly, he had to qualify from the first round of the UK final, something he easily managed to achieve because he gained the jury's approval and kind words.

The 2010 esctoday.com National Final Awards will be held between April and May, which means between the national final season and the Eurovision Song Contest. We will repeat the same format with two rounds for nominations which was used this year – you can read how it works here. However, this time the individual polls for each country will always be held right after the national final, when the entries are still fresh. You can vote for your favourite performance not to qualify in the UK national final here. You can only vote for those acts that actually performed the song for Oslo.
In 2009, the United Kingdom was represented by Jade Ewen, who finished fifth in the final with her song It's my time. As a member of the big four, the country is already qualified for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 on 29th May.
