“I am positively giddy for Eurovision 2017 and chuffed that Eurovision: You Decide is back! I’ve been hearing great things about the standard of the songs this year and I just wish January would hurry up so that I can hear the songs and meet the performers! We’ve got an even bigger venue, exciting guest performers and a brilliant expert panel. It’s going to be great.” said Mel Giedroyc.
Six contestants will be in the battle to win the competition to represent their country in Ukraine in May 2017. These six competing songs will be revealed on 23rd January 2017 on The Ken Bruce Show on BBC Radio 2.
