Daz Sampson, the United Kingdom's participant at this year's Eurovision Song Contest, is already making good on his promise to go out and promote his song across Europe. UK fans will be able to catch the DJ-singer-songwriter on television this week as he appears on Richard and Judy and Top of the pops. Initial plans for taking the song to Europe include trips to Poland and Russia before Daz lands in Athens in May. The song will be released on Pete Waterman's Eastern Bloc label through Sony BMG on Monday 17th April.

Fresh from his spectacular victory at the 3rd annual Making your mind up show on Saturday night, DJ Daz has wasted no time in preparing to launch his camaign to deliver the UK it's first Eurovision Song Contest win in 9 years. Although he had to overturn the odds against odds on favourite, Antony Costa, Daz was prepared to back the song with his own wallet at the bookies, cooly winning a return of 8,000 pounds.

Speaking after the show, he said “I always believed I was going to win, I knew the British public would back an underdog, it's time for a change. Let�s kick some arse in Greece�. The backing dancers are being prepared to sing the backing track live on stage in Athens, and we are promised that the plans will work brilliantly.

No stranger to success, Daz was part of the Bus Stop collaboration that had an international debut smash hit single with Kung-fu fighting. He spent almost half of last year in the UK Chart Top 40 under the name Uniting Nations with the smash hit song Out of touch. Selling over 100,000 copies of the single and breaking into the top ten in charts across Europe helped see the act win the prestigious Smash Hits Poll Winners Party Best Dance Act 2005 award.

Speaking exclusively to esctoday.com at the launch of Making your mind up last month, Daz promised that if he was lucky enough to be voted the winner by the British public, he would do everything in his power to win the Eurovision Song Contest. He spoke of his pain at recent results achieved by the country and said that he would take the song to fans across Europe before the event.

True to his word, Daz is planning to attend events in Russia and Poland. He plans to attend the Radio energy festival in Moscow on 29th March, which he will follow the next day by appearing at various club events. He will also be appearing at the ESKA Music Awards in Warsaw between 28th and30th April before touching down in Greece.
