You can only choose 1 but there's 4 Oasis songs? I can see some vote-splitting among most of Absolute Radio's audience (all 4 are ace songs, mind)...I've voted for Common People in any case
I just wanna live large and remain though...

Apparently this took place a couple months ago but you can still vote? (I gave a nod to Shed Seven)

If you didn't love Eurovision so much, I'd swear you were British! The poll's somehow still allowing votes, despite results being announced in August, like you say. Here they are; I will transcribe them if eligible, however unlikely that is, considering their selection by the public:
