Entry to Eurovision 2023 in UK announced as Mae Muller | Television

The entry of the United Kingdom into Eurovision 2023 has been announced as Mae Muller. The singer-songwriter will represent her country after being selected through the same process as last year, in which the BBC worked with a music management company.

The 25-year-old will perform her track I Wrote a Song at the competition in May, in an attempt to follow Sam Ryder’s success in 2022.

“Sam Ryder was so amazing last year and proved that the UK could be back on the left side of the table!” said the musician. “I am SO delighted to be participating in Eurovision this year and representing the UK! I’ve loved watching Eurovision all my life, so taking part in such a massive music contest is just awesome.

I Wrote a Song, Mae Muller’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 in the UK.

Muller co-created his track with British songwriter Lewis Thompson, who has worked with David Guetta, as well as Karen Poole, who has worked with Kylie Minogue and Lily Allen. “I wrote the song I Wrote a Song a few months ago when I was going through a tough time and wanted to feel empowered in relationships,” Muller said, “so having it chosen for the UK song of this year’s Eurovision is honestly a dream!”

Muller previously supported Little Mix on their stadium tour in 2019 and scored a US Top 10 hit with her single Better Days, which she performed on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

In 2022, she was nominated for the MTV EMA and VMA. His music has been streamed millions of times on YouTube and has reached over 2 billion streams and 5.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify. She signed her first recording contract while working in a pub.

“BBC Studios are delighted to have Mae Muller fly the British flag on her home turf in this very special Eurovision year,” said Suzy Lamb, Managing Director of Entertainment and Music at BBC Studios. “We could see from the first time we met her that she is a ball of positive energy and we can’t wait for the rest of Europe and beyond to fall in love with her and her fabulous song. .”

Muller will appear in a special on March 9 at 8:55 p.m. on BBC One, Eurovision 2023: Meet the UK Act, where she will be interviewed by Scott Mills. It will also be the first TV broadcast of the song, which was announced as the UK’s entry to Eurovision 2023 during this morning’s Zoe Ball Breakfast show on Radio 2.
