Blue chucks out the video for 'I Can' - watch the Eurovisionary clip debut now!

*I* was born this way
Boyband Blue, otherwise known as "the band that has that gay guy in it who got naked" (see above) took a break a long time ago to allow everyone involved to pursue solo careers.  One of them had a couple hits, another had one sort-of hit, and the rest of them played extras in local theatre productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

So it was only a matter of time before they all reunited for their BIG COMEBACK just like every other boyband except N*Sync because Justin Timberlake is better than everything.  And what better way to stage a ROARING RETURN TO RELEVANCE than to cobble together a sub-par tune for the sub-par trashfest that is Eurovision and then make an actually rather alright video for it?  Well, there are lots of better ways, but they didn't go with those.

The song their people picked for some reason is called 'I Can,' and while we could go on and on at length about how they clearly CAN NOT, we just did a very similar joke with Sophie's new single title yesterday so we'll just say that 'Can' is definitely not the groundbreaking comeback tune Blue were probably hoping for.  It'll obviously lose at Eurovision and then be a "highlight" of their disappointing small-venue tour of Wales, but the boys still got to make a rather serviceable video for it and at least they'll always have that.
