Eurovision Song Contest 2023 Assembly
It’s that time of year again! Get ready for the funniest show on earth! (Does anyone really take it seriously?!) This assembly gives a quick chronological run through past winners … and losers! How can, for example, the UK get it so right … and yet so desperately wrong! A light-hearted coverage of all UK-winning songs (and runners-up) plus such greats as Abba. The song list is memorable – for all the right reasons!
Cast size 30 – easily adaptable up or down. Duration: 15 – 30 minutes (depending on the number of songs chosen)
Music 11 Bucks Fizz – Making Your Mind Up
(Whole cast plus ‘Bucks Fizz representative sings song)
UK: Winners again! Has that helped make your mind up? Isn’t it all about winning?
Narrator: (Firmly) No. There’s no question in my mind that it’s actually all about taking part – not just winning.
(To Judge) Don’t you agree?
Judge: Oh! Absolutely!
Narrator: Though there are times when you might wonder whether certain countries actually want to win?
Judge: Well, with song titles like ‘Why Do I Always Get it Wrong?’
Narrator: Good grief! Whoever came up with that one?
UK: The United Kingdom!
Judge: And ‘One Step Out of Time’.
Narrator: Who was that?
UK: UK again!
Judge: And ‘Don’t Play that Song Again’.
Narrator: Don’t tell me…
UK: Yes, us again!
Judge: And ‘Cry Baby’.
UK: (Head in hands) That was the year we scored ‘Nil points!’
Narrator: (In disbelief) Who writes these lyrics?
UK: Well, we did get it a bit wrong with ‘That Sounds Good to Me’! Sadly it didn’t to anyone else and we came last again!
