Whether you love it or hate it, the annual Eurovision Song Contest will be back on our screens again in no time. On Saturday 16th May, the 2020 edition of the infamous, worldwide singing contest will take place in Rotterdam in The Netherlands.
The big question every year of course is who will represent the United Kingdom in the contest? Well today it was revealed that singer-songwriter James Newman will. You may recognise the name for a number of reasons: He’s the older brother of musician John Newman, known for his chart-topping hit “Love Me Again”, but he also boasts some impressive song-writing credits for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Little Mix and Jess Glynn.
This year’s UK song entry is called “My Last Breath”. James has described his song as “simple, memorable and anthemic”, meanwhile critics have branded it, “unremarkable” and “serviceably bland”. However, it won’t be too difficult to top last year’s result, as the UK saw a humiliating defeat, finishing in last place. Tune in to BBC One on Saturday 16th May to see how James does!
