The Rasmus are competing for the chance to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Last week, it was confirmed that the Finnish rock band - who formed in 1994 - were set to release new single, Jezebel, for their Eurovision bid, and it's since been unleashed on the world with a helpful lyric video.

Unsurprisingly, it has all the hallmarks of a Eurovision anthem and comes complete with an infectious chorus, which will no doubt have the crowds singing in Turin.

The band - who are most known for their In Their Shadows single - are one of seven acts competing for the chance to represent their country, alongside Cyan Kicks, BESS, Younghearted, Olivera, Tommi Läntinen and Isaac Sene.

The responses to this news were overwhelmingly positive, with the band trending on Twitter and fans delighted they were taking part.

Pete said: "Haha wooooow. As if I didn't have enough reasons to watch Eurovision!"

Vicky added: "As you know I love #TheRasmus , therefore I’m very excited for this! I think I know who I want to win Eurovision this year! Go Finland!"

Many couldn't believe how many years had passed since In The Shadows was released.

And the memes were plentiful...

If the band are selected to represent their country and they qualify through all the stages, they will head to Italy, the country of last year's winner's Maneskin.
