Eurovision 2023: Everything you need to know about Mae Muller, the UK’s entrant in Liverpool
Mae Muller will be representing the United Kingdom at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
The 25-year-old singer was announced as the UK’s entry on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show back in March, making Muller the first female act to represent the UK in five years.
Muller will perform in Liverpool following the surprise success of Sam Ryder who, after years of UK acts getting underwhelming Eurovision results, placed second to Ukraine in 2022.
As the UK is one of the Big Five countries, Muller will not have to perform during either of the semi-finals taking place this week.
Instead, she will go straight to the final on Saturday (13 May), where she will be one of 26 acts to compete.
Here’s everything you need to know about her...
