Engelbert Humperdinck thinks he can push Jedward into the number two slot.
Chatting to the BBC before ‘jetting off’ to Baku, The Hump said ‘Love Will Set You Free’ ”has a very strong chance.”
“It’s a Viennese waltz and waltzes have a romantic feel and people usually dance slow to it. I think this has a great, great chance,” declared the 78-year-old, clearly forgetting to set his alarm for Poppers O’Clock.
Engelbert did at least display keen understanding of one element of Eurovision. ”It’s not a talent competition,” he noted. ”It’s a song contest and because of my experience of travelling around the world and being an ambassador for my country, I think it stands a good chance.”
We’re not here for ambassadors fella, we’re here for this.
