Eurovision: Brits just as divided as they were on Brexit

May 17, 2019

With the final of the 64th contest taking place in Israel on Saturday evening, nearly a quarter of British viewers would prefer if their entry, Michael Rice, wasn't part of the event's lineup. That's according to a new YouGov poll which found that 24 percent of the UK's population would vote to leave the Eurovision Song Contest if given a chance in a referendum. Only 22 percent would choose to Remain while 46 percent wouldn't even bother to vote.
