Uh-oh. Who'd've thunk Eurovision would get political - in Israel....

Stars urge BBC to ask for Eurovision to be moved out of Israel

Dame Vivienne Westwood, Peter Gabriel and Wolf Alice are among 50 artists who have called for the Eurovision Song Contest to be relocated from Israel.

Citing human rights concerns, they have signed an open letter urging the BBC to ask organisers to move the contest.

"Eurovision may be light entertainment, but it is not exempt from human rights considerations," they wrote.

In response, the BBC said it was not appropriate "to use the BBC's participation for political reasons".

She's probably played her in some hard-hitting two-part ITV drama.

Declan McKenna

type

Wikipedia, and I think we can all guess who edited his page can't we? wrote:
Declan Benedict McKenna[1] (24 December 1998) is an English singer, songwriter and musician. He initially gained recognition for winning the Glastonbury Festival's Emerging Talent Competition in 2015. McKenna self-released the song "Brazil", a protest song criticizing FIFA and the 2014 FIFA World Cup held in Brazil, as his debut single in December 2014. It gained recognition after its re-release in August 2015. It reached number one on Sirius XM Radio's Alt Nation Alt 18 Countdown for 23 January 2016 and held that spot for three weeks. The song also reached number 16 on the U.S. Billboard Alternative Songs chart, number 45 in Japan and number 135 in France. His popularity attracted the attention of many major music labels; he eventually signed to Columbia Records in 2016.

McKenna continued to write and record music for his debut studio album during 2016. During this time, he also performed concerts and appeared at festivals. He released What Do You Think About the Car? through Columbia on 21 July 2017. Songs that appear on the album that were released as singles prior to the album’s release include "Paracetamol", "Isombard" and "The Kids Don't Wanna Come Home", which peaked at number 84 on Belgium's Ultratop Flanders chart. Also during 2017, he made appearances at the Coachella and Lollapalooza festivals.

So this Declan McKenna was born AFTER the UK last won the Eurovision Song Contest. He could be scuppering his only chance to see us lift the trophy.

...Although I suppose that isn't the first thing on an activist's mind. shifty

I wonder if "FYR Macedonia" will be called its new name of North Macedonia in this year's contest.

It had better be. We can't have the likes of them laying claim to parts of Greece with their name games.

"Sandstorm" by, funnily enough, Darude. A UK number 3 hit in 2000 and one of those rare instrumental hits. music
