The Eurovision Files 3: Cyndi

The third in a series of interviews with this year’s Euro hopefuls. Next time: the lovely Liz McClarnon.

Ize French but don't 'old it against me

She’s the only Making Your Mind Up finalist you’ve never heard of (oh, except Beverlei Brown) and she’s French. Is that allowed then? Apparently it is, as she’ll tell you herself…

But you’re a French. How come you’re allowed to represent the UK in Eurovision?

It’s a song contest, so it’s all about the song, not the singer!

Oh, alright then. And you’re a non-famous. Have you any idea who the other people up against you are?

I know the guy from The Darkness (not well enough to know his name, obviously) and I know Brian from East 17 and I know Liz from Atomic Kitten. But I don’t know Scooch.

Does it make it more tricksy that you’re up against such big stars?

It all comes down to the performance. You have to prove that you can do it. (She sounds a bit like Celine Dion, so she can, you know, do it).

Have you met the others?

Yeah, I met them at a press thing. They’re all very nice. We were laughing together. It’s not a contest between us, it’s between the writers (Honey, it’s going to feel very much like a contest between youze come Saturday).

They’re all on the comeback trail, aren’t they?

Any chance you get, whether it’s to get your career going again or whatever, you should take it. It doesn’t matter that they’re trying to make a comeback.

So, what’s your top Eurovision winner of all time?

I think when Abba sang ‘Waterloo’. It’s very old but even today Abba is still hip. I’d like some of that.
