    Didn’t she promise the last song was going to SAVE HOMOSEXUALITY?

    Curious to see how the SAME ARTISTS will respond to the feedback from last time and the other songs that got the best feedback. It's quite a unique oppurtunity.

    It's going to be hard not to feel for the 2020 artists who come back but don't qualify to the finals.

    Not sure why this particular announcement got me thinking about that... :side-eye:

    I can't remember her song but I do remember thinking that she would be an OAP based on her name :(

    Lesley Roy sounds like someone who molested kids in the 70s.

    I'll always have a soft spot for her, she was my ASFM entry in something like 2010.

    The last one was woefully bad. Surely next year's has to be an improvement - they must have seen how badly Story Of My Life was ranked by fans in comparison to the other entries in 2020. :zombie:

    She seems to have a genuine affection for Eurovision and for pop music in general, so I hope she can pull something better out of the bag for 2021.

    Reading the original thread for Story of my Life, the pre-hype from the Irish press was HILARIOUS :D

    I look forward to hilariously referring to this as Flaps from now on.

    I think it’s brave of OLD LES to take the title of a modern day classic, not that I don’t have HIGH HOPES. :eyes:

    Some of the lyrics have been revealed :o

    Why’d you have to go and make maps so complicated?
    I see the way you’re acting like an ordnance survey gets me frustrated
    Maps like this, you
    There’s a church and a pub and a lake
    And a youth hostel there at G6:B5

    No news yet on who her influences are this year.

    A certain famously queer theatrical troupe haven't tweeted about being involved this time, so maybe they're not

    That Euphoria comparison furore might have scared them off

    She’s an actual visionary. She’s long since transcended the human need for lyrics to make sense.

    Loving how even the official Eurovision account isn’t sure about wanting to do this reveal.

    Sadly a friend of mine saw the performance concept and had no idea what any of them were thinking about - he loved everything else they'd done but thought they'd gone completely off the boil for what they put together last year.

    I heard this snippet too, from some - how should I put it - queer sources.

    There’s the M4
    It runs west to Wales
    Can I make it any more obvious?

    I hear it explores the forced Anglicisation of place names as an act of cultural erasure and colonial violence, and is also about crashing the mall.

    Ironically, the shots she's been sharing from the video shoot over the past week, actually don't seem too dissimilar to the look of the 'Euphoria' music video. Maybe the queer theatre group directed it.
