United Kingdom in the North Vision Song Contest
◄ 4 Eurovision Heart 6 ►

United Kingdom participated in the fifth edition of the North Vision Song Contest which took part in Denmark. The song was internally selected by the BBC.

Before North Vision

The BBC opted again for internal selection. Due to the failing in the previous edition, they opted to go with a song that they thought would get good attention. They decided to go with the artist Ellie Goulding and her song "Burn".

They chose this song as a metaphorical message that they were going to "burn" their way back into success at North Vision.

At North Vision

The country performed in the first half of the first semi-final after Portugal and before Liechtenstein. Ellie did the deed that the country set her to do and qualified back to the grand final.

In the grand final, she performed 20th in the running order. She finished the contest in 9th place with 130 points. Taking the United Kingdom back into the top 10. The contest was won by the edition débutant Lebanon.
