Eurovision 2011: the Blue Group will represent the United Kingdom

Blue is about to make a comeback of thunder. The British boy band, who gained notoriety in the early 2000s with songs like "One Love", "All Rise" or "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" duet with Elton John, announced that it would represent the United Kingdom at the next Eurovision Song Contest. For the occasion, the group, composed of Simon Webbe, Duncan James, Antony Costa and Lee Ryan, will perform a brand new song entitled "I Can" and who also happens to be their new single.

"I always wanted to represent my country, then it is an extraordinary experience for Blue," said Simon Webbe. For his part, James Duncan said that their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest was an opportunity to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the group. Formed in 2000, Blue has sold over 13 million albums worldwide and won two Brit Awards, the British equivalent of our Victoires de la Musique.

All this with only three albums. The group split in 2005, was reformed last year for a series of concerts. The next Eurovision contest will be held next May 14 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
