    2 songs = Record labels
    2 songs = Maybe internet voting/online portal?

    0 songs = OGAE, let's reduce any chances of bland trash winning in 2019
    I love this suggestion! Echo every single suggestion that you've put forward here, this year's EYD selection was far better than the first year, but we need to keep pushing for that killer song that really instantly hook casual viewers. Something with impact, that maybe pushes some boundaries without being too out there, and most importantly something that isn't cheesy as heck!

    (on an unrelated note, AWS acknowledged the fact Muse did this kind of trick once when being asked about if they themselves would do something like that since Eurovision is a playback show save for vocals. I cannot remember the interview anymore but yeah, it was somewhere out there)

    So maybe actually I'd love for Matt to try out WRITING a Eurovision-like song instead of having to perform one himself. Something ą la "Soaked" perhaps? Or if they're allowed to, do a live interval act if UK ever gets to host Eurovision again... that'd be fun. The song doesn't necessarily need to be Eurovision-interval-act tailored just like their song for the 2012 Olympics though, so yeah :]

    Also, you mentioned Hurts. How many years is this rumour and wishing going on for them to go to Eurovision? And imo their songs have gotten more and more likeable so I'd also die for them in Eurovision <3

    My main request is that all songs and decisions are kept at least 100 miles from OGAE at all times. Our OGAE has just awful taste.

    I mentioned Soaked cuz that is the only song of Muse that was passed on to someone else to officially sing it (Adam Lambert).

    If she's up for it, I reckon there's more than a decent chance we'll be sending SuRie again, so she can have her 'proper' Eurovision moment.

    This also gives the BBC a great excuse to shake the format up a bit and make the NF about song selection rather than picking the artist. Cos let's face it, the performers for the last 3/4 years haven't been the problem, it's the songs they've been lumbered with.

    I completely agree.

    The HUGE issue with our selection format now is the poor songs great artists keep being lumbered with.

    I was really hoping (before YD) that we'd go for something similar to 'The Hit' in Ireland. Giving a bit more focus on the songwriter as well as the performer.

    Let's be honest it's going to be Rylan at some point in time. I have a feeling that this year might have been all about preparing him...

    Although I guess it is worth remembering that he is more tv presenter than singer these days.

    Re: UNITED KINGDOM 2019

    Sam Smith would be ideal I think and Adele would win simply by turning up.

    But we have to be realistic, these are mega names in global music, as much as we love Eurovision these guys have no need for Eurovision.

    Imagine if Sam Smith represented us in 2019 and didnt win. It would be a humiliation for him to lose to someone who may have never had a single hit when he has won grammys and I understand that.

    More realistically I think we need to be more daring and do something different next year. Its not about the artist so much but the song. We have consistently been sending boring "safe" songs for the past 10 years or so (exception being 2017 & 2014). We need a risk next year. Something uniqe like what Israel and Estonia did this year.

    What ever the genre it will be..... it will have to be very different for us to start scoring big again.
