In a televised address to the nation in November 2008, Andrew invited Eurovision-wannabes to submit an audition through the BBC website, saying: "The BBC have asked me to unite our kingdom in a quest to bring home the Eurovision Crown once more. I have been asked to write the song but where will I be unless one of you volunteer to sing it?"

The battle to represent the UK climaxed in a series of live shows ‘Your Country Needs You' on BBC One, hosted by Graham Norton, where the viewers will have the final say on who will pick up the baton for the country in the Eurovision extravaganza being held in Moscow this May.

It has been over 10 years since the UK last won the contest, but Andrew is looking forward to the challenge, "I have never shied away from the impossible and this looks like the biggest mission impossible of all time. But with the might of the British public behind me, who knows what will happen?"

The public had their say and picked its winner who premiered a new composition by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Diane Warren. 

Jade, the winner, was previously signed to Sony BMG with girl band Trinity Stone. One of the other members of the group was Mica Paris's niece Cherry - who is still one of Jade's best friends. At twelve years old, Jade successfully auditioned for the role of Nala in "The Lion King" in the West End. She has also appeared in TV programmes such as The Bill and Casualty, where she played a pregnant teenager.
