Eurovision or Celtavision?

Cornish singers the Aggie Boys Choir came second in what has been dubbed as 'Celtavision'.

They wrote and performed a song in the Cornish language for the contest.

It is where the Celtic nations go head-to-head Eurovision style.

Singer Sam Stevens tells us what it is all about. he said: "It's been dubbed 'Celtavision', it' sa competition for all six Celtic nations to enter and they have to perform a newly composed song in their native tongue, I wrote a song called 'give thanks to Kernow'."

Band mate Alex Basnett said: "There will be a judge from each different nation and they will score that from six to twelve, and that goes up on a big board and they call it out in the same style as they would for Eurovision, so you will have Scotland saying six points for Cornwall or whatever it is, it's quite exciting because it does have that similarity with Eurovision."

It is as the contest is back, with Molly Downes singing Children of the Universe for the UK.
