OGAE Song Contest 2019 – the UK Heat


Voting is currently underway in the UK heat of the OGAE Song Contest 2019, which this year is being hosted by…..us!

Yes, following last year’s win by Steps and “Scared of the Dark”, OGAE UK has the honour of hosting this year’s annual contest to find the best non-Eurovision song from across the network.

But before we get to that stage, it’s time for us to select a song to be the UK’s representative.

21 songs are in the running to represent the host nation this year, and it’s a strong line-up!

You can watch all the songs in a playlist here or find a Spotify list here.

Once you’ve listen to all the songs, please send in your votes to our Contest Co-ordinator Fin, on ogaeukselection@yahoo.co.uk, and don’t forget to include your membership number!
