Following the huge success of the Isolation Song Contest, comedian Tom Taylor is pleased to announce the part of the contest every Eurovision fan loves: the results of the jury and public votes and the announcement of this year’s winner.
On the night the Special Guests including Ainsley Harriott, David Walliams, Ed Balls, Esme Young, Gregg Wallace, Keith Brymer Jones, Milton Jones, Paul Sinha, Susie Dent and Sir Tony Robinson, will each be awarding ‘douze points’ to their favourite song before the public’s vote is added, culminating in the announcement of the winning song.
We are even embracing the Eurovision tradition of the interval entertainment with a performance from Brit Award Winning singer/songwriter, James Newman who would have been representing Britain at Eurovision 2020 had it not been cancelled.
When the Isolation Song Contest first aired on Saturday, 2nd May it had audiences rushing to donate money to the Trussell Trust, Crisis and Refuge, and vote for their favourite performer at the same time. So far the fans of the contest have donated over £36,000 with the option to vote still available until midnight on Friday, 22nd May.
And the response from the performers has been as enthusiastic as that of the show’s audience –
“I have absolutely loved being part of the contest. It’s spurred me on to write some more music ready for later in the year. It was one of the campest and funniest hours I’ve had watching the show. Really brilliant fun.” Divina De Campo
“Taking part in The Isolation Song Contest was an experience that tore at my very soul. It took me to the very edge of my limits and beyond, far beyond into a realm the terrifyingly unknown. It left me emptied, exhausted, unable to move, speak, eat, sleep, make love or go to the lavatory. I enjoyed it very much.” Jacques Soufflé (Kevin Eldon)
“This has been a wonderful and exciting experience from start to finish. I’d like to thank the artist Timotay for realising my vision. Plans to tour Romania off the back of this song are being considered.” Tim Vine
Everyone involved in the project has given their time and skills for free to help raise as much money as possible for The Trussell Trust, Crisis and Refuge. Three charities that are doing amazing work supporting vulnerable people through these difficult times.
