Pointless hosts’ Eurovision 2014 entry deserves a lot more than nul points

Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman's 80s-influenced number could have been a contender in tonight's competition


Forget Children of the Universe (sorry Molly!), Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman’s Eurovision song is the one that should be representing the United Kingdom in Copenhagen tonight.   


The duo may present a quiz in which the perfect score is zero but the Pointless hosts’ unofficial Eurovision entry is deserving of way more than nul points.

Armstrong and Osman surprised an audience on the BBC game show by donning a confused mix of retro gear to perform a song with a distinctly 80s electro-pop feel. The results were surprisingly impressive, with Armstrong’s deep baritone sounding not entirely unlike Phil Oakey of The Human League.

It would certainly get my vote, but see what you think below…
