Eurovision 2008 - Andy Abraham (X Factor) to represent UK with “Even If” - watch video


Andy Abraham was voted in as winner on BBC’s Eurovision: Your Decision Saturday night and is now set to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008. The show will take place in Belgrade, Serbia.

With the three judge panel consisting of John Barrowman, Carrie Grant and Terry Wogan, it was a close call for Andy. Terry Wogan was the only judge to vote for Andy to stay in for the public vote, as a wild card.

Andy’s soulful performance of his song, “Even If”, written by Andy Abraham, Andy Watkins and Paul Wilson, was enough to convince the public to vote for him as the winner to go on to the Eurovision 2008 final.

Other contestants included ex-EastEnders star Michelle Gayle, Simona Armstrong, Rob McVeigh, LoveShy and The Revelations.

Andy Abraham is best known in the UK as a former contestant on X Factor 2005. With memorable appearances that included a stand out performance of “Me and Mrs. Jones”, the former bin man was runner up to winner Shayne Ward.

Since the X Factor, Andy has released two studio albums, with a third on it’s way, set to include the single, “Even If”.
