Blue livid at Eurovision radio playlist snub – Tabloid Hell

'I Can' has only been played 22 times on UK radio

Blue have said they are livid at the lack of radio support for their Eurovision Song Contest song ‘I Can’, according to the tabs today (April 27).

The Daily Mirror has picked up on figures from radio monitoring website MyRadio, which show that ‘I Can’ has only been played 22 times on UK radio so far – leading to suggestions that they could follow the same fate as British Eurovision flops Josh Dubovie and Jemini.

And adding insult to injury, BBC Radio 2 – the UK’s Eurovision radio station – have given the track ‘nul points’ by not even playlisting it.

Singer Simon Webbe said: “We’re trying to do this for our country and our country isn’t backing us.”

A BBC spokesman said: “Radio 2 premiered Blue’s Eurovision song on the Graham Norton Show and has played the song across the schedule where editorially appropriate. It is not currently on the playlist but it may be considered on merit, in due course.”

The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Dusseldorf on May 14.
