A day of mourning has been announced in the UK following the tragic news that former boy band Blue will be representing the UK in this years Eurovision Song Contest in Germany later this year.
The BBC announced the tragic news earlier this evening. David Cameron and George Osborne have cut short their visit to the Davos economic forum and are considering entering themselves as they believe they can do a better job.
Downing Street have confirmed that due to the selection of Blue, Eurovsion 2011 has been cancelled and May 14th will instead be a day of national mourning.
Sky News reporter (right wing rebel) Kay Burley has reported, "everyone's looking very blue following the news".
A spokeman for the band said, "the boys have never heard of Eurovison but frankly they'd do anything for fame".
At this point we'd normally post one of our favourite videos from the bands back catalogue, but in this case we don't have any.

Just seen the Water Aid advert, what an amazing piece of background music.
The piece of music is called 'Now We Are Free'. It was used in the sounds track to the Gladiator movie. The original version was by Enya, however the piece in the Water Aid advert was apparently by Lisa Gerrard.
Here's Enya's version

Here's Lisa's version...

The best thing about this years Morecambe & Wise Christmas Show (well not actually this years) was the inclusion of The Nolans 1976 cover of When You Are A King - Amazing!
The Nolans - When you are a King
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!
The track was originally released by The White Plains...
