Things remain busy for Daz Sampson, the United Kingdom entry for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. WIth the single Teenage life now available for purchase in the shops and online, it is heading for the top 10 in the sales chart. Meanwhile Daz has issued a rallying cry to the fans for the United Kingdom, both at home and in Athens.
Daz will be hosting a special photoshoot on Tuesday 16th of May outside the Olympic Indoor Hall at 16:30, shortly before he goes insid e for his second rehearsal. The exact location will be confirmed during the United Kingdom press conference on Monday 15th May.
There is of course, a catch… all fans wishing to be in the photoshoot must come prepared… and that means dressed in school uniform! The uniform is strict: White shirt, blazer, shorts/skirt, school caps and badges! The photoshoot is expected to be picked up by the press back in the United Kingdom, and of course esctoday.com will be there with our cameras too!
Esctoday.com has also learnt thatDaz's two male dancers that appeared on stage with him at G-A-Y on Saturd ay night in London's astoria have arrived in Athens. It transpires that Jason (left in picture) will be a backing dancer for the Belgian entry whilst Dar ren (right in picture) will be performing for Turkey!
Teenage Life is selling well in the United Kingdom, with a midweek sales chart pos ition of 7 for CD sales. On itunes, it is currently just outside the top 30! Daz has issued the following war cry to the United Kingdom before finally crossi ng Europe bound for Athens:
love or hate me and my song, surely if you are a true UK eurovision fan or you're just a proud Brit it makes sense for you to back the UK entry this year and send us off to Athens with a top ten hit behind us.
Lets show Europe w e love this competition and can beat the rest. I urge you to buy a download from iTunes this week and help me in my plight to restore the good name of this great country of ours in Eurovision. It's your chance to do your bit.
Thank you – i will be thinking of everyone back home as i ta ke the stage to do battle and to hopefully bringthe trophy back to these great shores.
