Welcome to your Eurovision Song Contest.

This was the seventeenth edition of the Yourovision Song Contest, held in Hereford, after Ellie Goulding won the contest for the second time in the previous edition, marking the UK's first consecutive win, and fourth win overall.

The only two countries making their Yourovision débuts in this edition were Belgium and Antarctica, and the latter of which had been eligible to participate under the contest's rules from the beginning. Six former participant nations also made their return to the contest this month, while, most notably, Italy announced its withdrawal, citing, as its reason, that the Head of Delegation needed a brief respite in which to find a "higher quality of song" to represent the country, and that a return in the following edition was "99.9% likely".

The eventual winner was Ireland, marking a third consecutive win for the United Kingdom's Head of Delegation (who was awarded the right to a second country following her previous win, and subsequently chose what would eventually be the winner of this edition). In addition to this, this marks the first time a completely male act has won the contest.

Edition 17 - Hereford - Aim High

The city of Hereford was chosen to host the seventeenth edition of the contest, as it is the regional capital of Ellie Goulding's home county. The slogan for this edition was "Aim High", with the reminder of the old adage that if you shoot for the moon and miss, you still land amongst the stars.

The dates for this edition were:

Participation deadline/Voting begins: 11th April, 2015
Voting deadline: 24th April, 2015
Grand Final: 25th April, 2015
