Forget Molly Smitten-Downes, Bonnie Tyler or Engelbert Humperdinck, Eurovision 2015 is all about Electro Velvet, an unknown duo set to bring something a little different to the popular singing competition.
The news was announced this evening at the end of The Voice on BBC1 and, naturally, viewers quickly took to Twitter to have their say about the song, which is far from your average Eurovision entry…
I don't know how to feel. Genuinely never heard anything like it. A step massively into the unknown for the UK this year. #Eurovision

Some people on social media aren’t exactly impressed.
SERIOUSLY? this is appalling #eurovison2015

Even a little confused, maybe…

There aren’t, erm, overly high hopes for the live final…

Some people are already dishing out the dreaded nil points.

But it’s far from all bad news. This guy is kind of hopeful.
catchy, stand-out & unliked by many UK fans. Do we finally have a successful song? #Eurovision

In fact, these Tweeters are, as Urban Samphony puts it, “happy bunnies”.
Nice violin hook, 2 good voices, there's actual progression. I don't know what to say. Best UK entry since 2009. Happy bunny! #eurovision

This tune is so catchy! Loving these electric vibes on the song. I love the video, but also I love this curios duet!
Fan of UK #eurovision🙂
