The BBC is to create a big prime-time “very sexy Saturday night event” to choose next year's British Eurovision Song Contest entry, reports the website broadcastnow.co.uk. The BBC have decided to overhaul the national final after Jemini scored the UK's first 0 points ever in Riga last year.

The traditional A Song for Europe show, aired on a Sunday afternoon slot on BBC1, is to disappear and be replaced with a 60-minute show called either Nil Point Never Again! or Making Your Mind Up. The audience will get the chance to vote for the song and performer seperately. Record company Sony is helping the BBC to find the right songwriters, and Terry Wogan, the BBC's Eurovision commentator since 1972, will host the programme.

“We are completely revamping 'A Song for Europe'. We are reinventing it and have rethought the formula. We are going to do a big, big number on it. It is going to be very sexy”, tells the creative mind behind the new formula.
