Pop duo Electro Velvet will represent the U.K. at this year's (15) Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria.

Alex Larke, who also performs in a Rolling Stones tribute band, is teaming up with Bianca Nicholas to form Electro Velvet for the annual competition.

Larke says, "I feel incredibly privileged and humbled to be representing the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, for this massively historic 60th anniversary event. We have a fantastic song and will work as hard as is humanly possible to bring the contest home and make our great nation proud. It's time to get this party started! See you in Vienna!"

Nicholas was previously a contestant on the U.K. version of The Voice, but failed to make it past the first round. She has released one single, Hold on to Your Dreams, which entered Britain's top 100 singles chart in 2011.

Together they will perform electric swing track Still in Love With You at the event on 23 May (15).

Last year (14), Molly Smitten-Downes came 17th for the U.K. with Children of the Universe.
