United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest
James Newman’s “My Last Breath” was due to be the entry for the United Kingdom in the cancelled Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Last year, the UK entry was announced on the 27th February.
United Kingdom debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957 and has taken part in the contest every year since 1959. The country has won five times, most recently in 1997 when Katrina & The Waves sang “Love Shine a Light”.
