The past decade has seen the UK at the bottom of the Eurovision Song Contest more times than is acceptable for a country that regularly exports music superstars across the globe. It means the competition has lost its appeal on these shores and, rather unhelpfully, developed a stigma that seemed impossible to shift. However, this year the BBC looked to its Introducing scheme to find our hopeful, and after a little persuasion, Molly agreed to a trip to Copenhagen. But is she the act to reignite Britain's interest in Europe's biggest sing-off?

Gone are seasoned balladeers and cheesy irrelevant pop, and in comes a timely anthem flanked by marching beats and rousing strings. "And this is a madness/ I'm not giving in," Molly asserts, before she launches into a swaying chorus fit for a stadium. There's no denying that the earworm chant of "power to the people" will strike a chord with certain troubled parts of the continent, but the track can stand on its own merit of being one of the best entries we've put forward in years. Will it get Britain interested in Eurovision again? That's a big ask. But at least we're finally sending a song that stands a real chance of winning.
