Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat composer, Lord Lloyd Webber, has said that he will attempt to write a winning UK entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.

A new BBC show presented by gay comic Graham Norton will find a musician to sing the entry.

Lord Lloyd Webber, who also penned Phantom of the Opera, Evita and Cats and Starlight Express, is now well known as the judge of popular BBC talent contests Any Dream Will Do, How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria and I’d Do Anything.

Lord Llyod Webber said: “In my life I have never shied away from the impossible and this looks like the biggest mission impossible of all time, but with the might of the British public behind me who knows what will happen?”

A new programme hosted by Graham Norton, Your Nation Needs You featuring six live televised finales will find the musician to sing the UK’s entry.

Entrants will have until the 2st November 2008 to submit their details via a BBC website.
