Eurovision 'sounds good' to UK's Josh

The live show was hosted by Graham Norton, in front of a very enthusiastic standing audience. Pete Waterman took to stage and explained that six competing acts would first of all perform a hit song by the Stock, Aitken and Waterman songwriting team.

To help Pete Waterman decide which three artists would progress to the final round, he was helped by last year’s entrant Jade Ewen and Bruno Tonioli. After all six acts had performed. Pete then revealed that the three finalists would be Esma, Alexis and Josh. They all took turns in performing the specially commissioned entry That Sounds Good To Me. This was the first time the song had been revealed to the public.

It was then up to the televoting public who would take the honour and follow in Jade Ewen's footsteps and perform for the United Kingdom in Oslo. After an interval act where the Sugababes and Alexander Rybak performed, Graham Norton announced the results. In third place finished Esma. The runner up was Alexis and the winner was Josh.
