Eurovision hopefuls announced

The Eurovision hopefuls

It's that time again - Britain is being asked to choose who will sing for victory in this year's Eurovision.

Six acts are set to battle it out for a place in the song contest, which is held in the Serbian capital Belgrade.

They include X Factor's Andy Abraham, and Rob McVeigh and Simona Armstrong, who were in Any Dream Will Do and How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?

Whoever gets through will be hoping to do better than Britain's last entry, Scooch, who finished 23rd out of 24.

The other singers taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest are a pretty varied bunch.

Michelle Gayle had a string of hits in the 90s, but has been fairly quiet ever since.

Girl group Loveshy already have some talent show experience, as they took part in Popstars: The Rivals (which was like the X Factor), and the Revelations were brought together by an ad in music mag the NME.
