British fans in Vienna: Sweden is a hot contender

After today’s dress rehearsal of the second semi-final, we took the temperature amongst some of the British fans who’ve travelled to Vienna to support the UK entry Electro Velvet.

We asked them what they thought of the UK song, and who they think the main contenders are for victory on Saturday. One word seemed to be on everybody’s lips: Sweden.

Three British Eurovision fans

These British fans had travelled from the North of England and felt the British entry was a bit “Marmite”

Ellen from London

Ellen from London felt that if Australia beat the UK, it would be the Ashes all over again

A couple of fans from Australia

Shirley and Alan travelled all the way from Australia to be present at the event

Two Scottish Eurovision fans

Two Scottish Eurovision fans, Abbie and Blair were proudly flying the Saltire, although they said they weren’t sure if Electro Velvet had a Scottish connection.

So there you have it. Some differing views, but one things for certain – everyone was in excellent spirits!


My first Eurovision memory is watching the nervous Doireann NĂ­ Bhriain present the 1981 contest from Dublin where of course Bucks Fizz won. So yes, I'm no spring chicken.
