SuRie in the Eurovision Song Contest

Before being selected to represent the United Kingdom in Lisbon this year, SuRie has had experience working in the contest by working with the Belgian delegation. She was a backing singer for Loïc Nottet and his entry ‘Rhythm Inside‘ and Blanche’s ‘City Lights‘. Both entries qualified for the Grand Final and both entries placed 4th overall.

In 2018, SuRie was selected to be one of the participants in this year’s Eurovision: You Decide. After a positive reaction from the crowd in Brighton, SuRie was selected to represent the United Kingdom in Lisbon with her entry ‘Storm‘.

As a member of the Big Five, SuRie automatically qualified for the Grand Final in Lisbon. On the night of the Grand Final, she, unfortunately, suffered a stage invasion. However, keeping in good spirit, she went on and finished her performance. She managed to placed 24th overall in the competition with 48 Points.

Are you disappointed that SuRie will not be participating in the British national selection in 2019?. Would you like for her to return to the competition at some point in the future?.

I started watching Eurovision ever since I moved to the UK in 2006, obsessed since 2012 and haven't looked back since.
