The UK’s Eurovision track record is not exactly something we’re proud of, but things could be looking up for this year’s contest, which will be broadcast  from Stockholm, in three stages, on May 10, 12 and 14. 

For the first time in six years, the public will be able decide on the UK entry for the singing competition. A selection show, Eurovision: You Decide, will air on BBC4 this Friday at 7.30pm, during which the nation will be able to cast its votes for one of six shortlisted acts.

The last time the UK entrant was chosen by public vote, rather than a panel of judges, was in 2009, when singer Jade Ewen, managed to make it to a respectable fifth place (the highest ranking for the UK since 2002).

So, who are the musicians hoping to save us from Eurovision embarrassment in 2016?
