Sir Terry has got his priorities right, in my opinion. 'Children in Need' is a very worthy cause, but I can't say the same about the Eurovision Song Contest!
Richard, Sir Terry agrees with you:
The BBC website reveals today that what was long speculated is now a fact: Sir Terry Wogan will no longer be the face of Eurovision in the United Kingdom. The 70-year old Irishman has been involved with Eurovision for 35 years, both as a commentator and as a host for the UK national finals. He was also the host of the Eurovision Song Contest in Birmingham in 1998 together with Ulrika Jonsson. Fellow Irishman Graham Norton will replace him. Mr Norton will host the new format UK selection show series ?Eurovision: Your country needs you? in January as well as commentate the final from Moscow in May. Wogan tells the BBC he feels “sad to leave it all behind after 35 wonderful years of commentating Eurovision for radio and television”.
"From my first, in a small musichall in Dublin, to my last, in the huge arena in Belgrade, it has been nothing but laughter and fun” He remembers “the silly songs, the spectacle, the grandiose foolishness of it all”.He concludes with his hope that Graham Norton together with "the musical brilliance of Lloyd Webber, Royaume Uni will gather its proper share of 'Douze Points' and bring the Grand Prix home to where it belongs."
Celine Dion performed for Switzerland, why not Hayley Westenra and Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber for Royaume Uni? There is a royal precedent.
