History[edit | edit source]

Bartlett officially joined the OSC on its 37th edition in Oalia. Prior to that, Bartlett voted as part of the International Jury in the 36th edition giving its first 12 points to the eventual winner Kaministiquia. For its debut in OSC 37, BarBC internally selected Dua Lipa with the song "New Rules". Qualifying 7th in the 2nd Semi-final, it ranked 6th in the Grand Final.

For its participation in OSC 38 held in Kaministiquia, BarBC organized a national final, Bartlett's Assembly of Songs for International Competitions ("BASIC"). In the first edition, international juries selected Leona Lewis and Avicii's "Collide", which placed seventh in the Grand Final. For the second edition, international juries selected Hardwell and Austin Mahone's "Creatures of the Night" for OSC 39, which placed 12th in the final. The third edition saw Lorde's "Perfect Places" being sent to OSC 40, placing 18th in the final.

BarBC decided to postpone BASIC and revert to internal selection for OSC 41 and 42 which saw mixed results - Rita Ora's "Anywhere" gave Bartlett's best placement at second and Maty Noyes' "Say It To My Face" its first non-qualification. BASIC would return for OSC 43; selected entry "Love Drunk" by Boys Like Girls matched Bartlett's highest placing at second.

Despite a successful BASIC, BarBC chose to select the next few entries internally - Twice's "Likey" placed 22nd in OSC 44, Nikki Williams' "Glowing" and Nova Miller's "Turn Up The Fire" both placed fifth in OSC 45 and 46 respectively, and "Jet Lag" by Simple Plan featuring Natasha Bedingfield placed third in OSC 47. BASIC would return for OSC 48 where "Want You Back" by 5 Seconds of Summer placed 16th.

Since then, Bartlett has only proceeded with internal selection, except in OSC 51 where they participated in Trinity NF with Asankon and Kimmystan. During this period, Bartlett has only missed the Finals seven times. Bartlett's luck improved with a runner-up finish in OSC 70, its highest since OSC 43; however, they placed last in OSC 73 semi-finals, marking Bartlett's worst performance in OSC.
