No one high profile will do it though as it is seen as a bit of a joke here, and if they didn't win it would be a humiliation. That said, there are lots of good, relatively unknown bands out there that I'm sure would do it just for the exposure. Even if Eurovision is seen as a bit of a joke, if a band put on a credible performance with a good song their profile would rise significantly.
One thing we have to stop doing is trying to produce a "Eurovision" song. We just need to produce good songs, not songs specifically designed for Eurovision.
