United Kingdom in the North Vision Song Contest
◄ 1 Eurovision Heart 3 ►

United Kingdom participated in the second edition of the North Vision Song Contest which took part in Iceland. The song was internally selected again and it was Diana Vickers with her song "Cinderella".

Before North Vision

The BBC continued with internal selection after deciding to search for an uncommon artist in the UK who has a name known publically but not had as much success in the charts. The timing was alongside the new single of Diana Vickers and so the BBC approached her to work with her on her song Cinderella and they both agreed to a contract.

At North Vision

The country performed in the first semi-final after Israel and before newcomers to the contest Slovakia. The song, unlike the first edition, performed in the second half song 18. Diana was successful in her performance and finished 3rd in the first semi-final. The song qualified to the grand final with 88 points.

In the grand final however, Diana was back in the opening half of the final and performed 5th before Belgium and after Germany. This did not phase her and shown success which bettered the UK's success from the first edition.

Diana finished the contest, like Nina in the top 10. Finishing in 7th place with 116 points.
