Eurovision Song Contest 2011 - the entry from Romania

I came across the ESC 2011 entry from Romania this evening:

It's a lively song, he's got a good and powerful voice (and he ain't bad-looking either) and he's singing in English. I haven't yet seen/heard the UK entry this year, but it'll have to be pretty good to beat this kind of classic 'Europop'.

After a bit of searching I now discover that the UK has already selected its song this year; it's to be by the group Blue and is called "I Can". In my view it is certainly the most powerful UK entry in many, many years and as it's by an established and popular group it should, in a fair world, do very well. It would certainly be very fitting if the 2012 contest were held in London, the year of the London 2012 Olympic Games. See what you think:

The Eurovision 2011 website is here; the contest will take place in Dusseldorf this year as Germany won the contest last year. The contest will be staged on 10th and 12th May (1st and 2nd semi-finals) with the final being held on Saturday 14th May.
