Marvin Humes confirmed as Eurovision: You Decide judge

JUDGE: Marvin Humes

POPSTAR AND DJ Marvin Humes will co-host UK’s selection show Eurovision: You Decide, alongside presenter and former Big Brother contestant Rylan Clarke and singer Mollie King.

This year sees a change to the judging panel as the new expert judges will be helping the UK public to decide the winner.

After all six acts have performed in the 'Song-Off' the expert judges will decide which three acts and version of each song will go forward to face the public vote. The three final acts will then perform one more time before the voting lines are opened, and the public chooses which song and performer will represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

DJ, producer, and broadcaster Marvin Humes has experienced staggering success over his 14-year career. As well as being part of boy band JLS and achieving chart success he’s also a successful DJ, playing sets in Ibiza, performing in Vegas and hosting his own show on Capital FM, where he interviews some of the biggest names in the music industry.

Speaking on the role, Humes said: “I have so many great memories of watching Eurovision from growing up, so being able to help decide who will represent the United Kingdom this year is very exciting! I know what it feels like to perform live for the public and a judging panel so hopefully I can bring that experience on the night.”

Mollie King added: "I'm so excited to be part of the judging panel for Eurovision: You Decide this year. Eurovision is a huge event in the music calendar every year so it's a real honour to have a say, alongside Marvin and Rylan, in which song and which artist has the all-important job of representing the UK this year in Tel Aviv - I wish them all the best of luck!"

Eurovision: You Decide will air on BBC Two on Friday 8 February at 7.30pm.
