The BBC has today confirmed that they will reveal their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 on 7 March.

The reveal will be done in the same method as last year, with a broadcast on the BBC red button service.

The broadcaster has, as ever, remained tight-lipped about their selection with no hints on whether the representative will be an established act or another up-and-coming artist.

The broadcaster made a call for any submissions to be made to them earlier this year, and today Guy Freeman, the executive producer, has said that one of those submissions stood out,

Some of the submitted songs were easily good enough to be commercial tracks straight away, so it wasn’t hard to draw up an initial shortlist of interesting contenders.
What we did next, was consider the strengths and weaknesses of each song in detail, with the realities of the contest foremost in mind.
Ultimately, one song stood out as having both instant impact and real memory staying power. Everyone is now working hard to get it ready for the eavening of Saturday 7th March.

The show will be made available at 22:15, after the broadcast of the Voice on BBC1.

Last year, Molly Smitten-Downes was internally selected to represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014.

Her entry, Children of the universe, finished 17th in the grand final with 40 points.
