Who will the BBC chose to represent the UK at the 60th contest?

7th March is the day when we will find out who will represent the UK and what the song will be.  I can't say that I'm very optimistic, but I hope to be wrong.

Apparently, the producer thinks that this year's song will be good though:

Quote
Producer Guy Freeman has said that “Ultimately, one song stood out as having both instant impact and real memory staying power”

The news has broken, and I've watched a clip of the song.  It's really bad in my opinion :(.  I am disappointed, but not surprised.  They're a duo, one of whom is from Hertfordshire (same county as me).  The choreography is cringe worthy, the lyrics are appalling, and the whole song is really weak.  I will be amazed if we score any points at all.

I like swing but this is just horrible and destroys what swing is about, lyrics are not that bad bit repetitive but heard worse from UK, I actually think Bianca actually has a nice voice, and could pull of a good swing song herself, and I mean proper classical swing, he just sounds like a prick.  The music is so annoying just goes on and on and on, dancers costumes what are they burlesque? thats not what swing is about.  Dancing itself is mediocre wouldnt win any prizes.  Its going to get points, its not going to win!

Although i like the voices, the song itself is very stupid...

Tell me about it.  It's so embarrassing, it really is.  The lyrics in the first verse are especially silly.

I'm not keen.
His voice sounds bad on the recording, so I dread to think what he'll be like when it's live.

It is being played regularly on the radio over here.  It's memorable, but not for the right reasons.  It keeps staying in my head for hours every time I hear it because the lyrics are so annoying.  I also dread what it's going to sound like when performed live.

It has been played pretty much every day on Ken Bruce's show on BBC Radio 2.

Use the listen again feature :P.  As you are Scottish, you have no excuse for not listening to a fellow Scot like Ken :P.

When I worked at TCV Scotland I listened to him every morning, but since becoming a student I dont get up at that time now and no real care to listen to the BBC, damn I dont even watch BBC (or any tv), I prefer 96.9 Rock FM in Athens.

But one day the old lovers long for more
 Dreams and desires of another youth
And they leave their families, betray their friends
 They don't want advice about how to be happy
