I Had A Dream – Justin Hawkins’ Eurovision

To help me cope with anything

JUSTIN Hawkins, former Darkness front man, had a dream.

In “Why I had to sing up for Eurovision”, Justin tells Sun readers why he joined the “battle” to win the right to sing the UK’s entry at this year’s Song Contest.

It is surely everyone’s ambition to represent their country. But opportunities for popular singers are slim. They can join a choir and bob up and down at The Proms, belt out the national anthem at a sporting event or enter Eurovision.

“Eurovision is something I’ve always wanted to do,” says Hawkins. “I had a dream that I should do it. I woke up with a really positive feeling about it. I think I got to the vote and then I woke up.”

If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail

The only way for Justin to see the result is to enter the show proper in Helsinki and experience the thrill of hearing two of Finnish TV’s better known presenters saying “Justin Hawkins Great Britain null points”. And then hearing it again in French – “Justin ‘Awkins le Royaume-Uni null points.”

But before he even gets that far Justin will have to stave off the competition. And it is fierce.

The Star profiles the has-beens, never-weres and wannabes who seek to drape their voices in the flag.

Step forward Cyndi Almouzni, boy-girl beat combo Scooch, former Atomic Kitten singer and Frances De La Tour look-alike Liz McClarnon, illiterate hip-hop band Big Brovaz and – a role on the spliffs if you please – former East 17 lead baseball cap Brian Harvey.

With so many recognisable faces, the BBC talent show Making Your Mind Up has transformed into Celebrity X Factor.

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality

Best of British, one and all…
