Royaume-Uni 1995

For the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Dublin for the second consecutive year, the United Kingdom entered « Love City Groove« , performed by Love City Groove. It finished in 10th place with a total of 76 points.

National final

The selection for the UK’s entry took place on Friday 31 March 1995 in A Song For Europe ’95, hosted, as ever, by Terry Wogan. After three years of having one act perform all the nominated songs, the UK national round for 1995 reverted to a multi-artist format which remained in place until 2010 (from 2011 to 2015, the BBC internally selected their performer and song).

Each song was introduced by a ‘supporter’ who championed the song: Tony Mortimer, Bruno Brookes, Ian Dury, Let Loose, Scarlet, Cheryl Baker, Mike Read and Jonathan King.

The UK public decided on the winning song, and the results were as follows:
