United Kingdom: Public song submissions opened

The BBC has started the public song submissions process to find the UK’s entry for the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal. As last year, all public entries will be considered and shortlisted by a representative panel of official UK Eurovision Fan Club members.

At the same time, entries are also being sought from leading professional songwriters, with guidance from Record Industry Executive and Music Consultant for the BBC, Hugh Goldsmith.

Hugh Goldsmith says: “The ESC in Lisbon 2018 promises to be yet another fantastic show and I’m determined that we, the UK, are able to build on our excellent showing of 2017 thanks to Lucie Jones’ superlative performance of the powerful ballad, Never Give Up On You. To this end I am, again, looking for songs with emotive lyrics, memorable melodies and brilliant productions. However, success at Eurovision can also be about originality and the element of surprise. So, please also send us your songs if they are creatively fresh, brave and a little bit different!”
