25-year-old singer Mae Muller will be representing the UK at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool. She’ll be performing her track ‘I Wrote A Song’, which is all about a bad breakup with a cheating boyfriend.
It’s a catchy tune and Mae Muller is super excited to represent the UK at Eurovision, following Sam Ryder’s success last year, which finished in second place at Eurovision 2022.
There were rumours that Birdy and Mimi Webb were in the running to represent the country but this morning on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show the North London native was announced as the choice for Eurovision 2023.
The selection process used to be an internal affair at the BBC but nowadays it works with the record label TaP music and together they look for a performer who fits the bill. Bosses of the record label said that they knew straight away “she would be an incredible ambassador for the UK at Eurovision”.
Mae Muller was first noticed as a talented musician when she began posting videos of herself singing on Instagram and has since amassed a huge following. She will be the first woman to compete for the UK since 2018 when SuRie represented the country.
Tickets for the contest sold out in an hour as soon as they became available, unsurprisingly. However, there will be plenty of places in Liverpool where fans of the contest can get together and watch as Graham Norton and Hannah Waddingham, amongst others, host the contest.
