One of the most successful songwriters of the last ten years, Ed Sheerana, recently had the opportunity to speak on UK involvementEurovision Song Contest, also regarding the second to last position in the row obtained by the nation. In fact, recently he was a guest “humberto“, a Dutch talk show hosted by Dutch actor and host of Surinamese origin humberto tan.
author of Hitmaker “your size” Claiming to be a huge fan of the Eurovision Song Contest and to follow it every year, and to the host’s question about their possible future participation, Ed Sheeran replied:
I see it every year, and every year I ask to part with my manager about it, but every time he replies that it’s not something that was already planned.
and to think James Newman (who represented the UK with Embers this year) even teamed up with Ed Sheeran on the song keep it all on me, as well as other songwriters from the English pop scene such as his brother John Newman I Olly Murs.
keeps going sheerana:
I think that if I had to participate, I would gladly participate…England must love Europe, which clearly does not happen, nor do I know it will.
So the British singer-songwriter has also expressed a hypothesis that many of his defeatist compatriots confirm with prejudice, namely that the United Kingdom does not like Europe and that always leads to disappointing results. However, it has been shown several times that some statements omit the time they get, and that the “political question” is downright silly.
just think that i 2009 (the last top 10 centered by country to date) The United Kingdom was awarded fifth place for a very good song and for an exceptional artist. jade even, With Andrew Lloyd Webber that she sewed on it “This is my time”, and in that 2010 The results were radically contested in front of a softer song without appeal, which unfortunately earned last place. Josh Dubovy. Eleven years ago there was no question of “Brexit” (which many Britons blame for the poor results in Britain) yet their songs have been rewarded if they are of quality and have failed otherwise.
conductor humberto He appears particularly annoyed by such a statement, giving a befitting reply. “We love England, and we love Ed Sheeran even more!” . But the singer-songwriter continues to support his theory that the UK is hated because it always lasts.
Continuing the interview, Ed Sheeran also talked about his favorites this year, claiming he appreciated us so much Moonlight, Icelandic representative Daisy Freer and german jendrik, which he also avoided. He spent several words of approval on our representatives, the winners of the review:
“I think Italy had the best song and performance of the night, although Iceland was also an interesting proposition. But the Italians were so good, they deserved to win.”
Here you can find excerpts from the interview on the Dutch talk show in which Eurovision was talked about:

A proposal with a very interesting appeal, which could undoubtedly bring the United Kingdom back to the highest level after so many years (the date of the last three forums) 2002handjob nineteen ninety eight I 1997, the year of the last victory Katrina and the Waves), and which somehow meets the “level” criteria proposed by the English critic Neil McCormick, as we mentioned earlier.
However, the problem with having such important representatives in the world of music is that you can’t know for sure how they’re going to go, because the “heaviness” of the name hasn’t always been synonymous with guaranteed success, examples are Blue in 2011 and bonnie tyler In 2013, eleventh and nineteenth respectively.
What is certain is that following the sad outcome of this year in the United Kingdom, which has scored zero points in both the standings and televoting for the first time since the introduction of the new voting system, there seems to be some stir in the country. of Queen Elizabeth, in the hope that the results would return to what they were by the 1990s.
