Olly Alexander getting ‘Dizzy’ in Malmö!
Last December, Olly Alexander shocked everyone during Strictly Come Dancing, when he confirmed that he would be flying the flag for the United Kingdom in Malmö. Following this, speculation turned towards the song. The former frontman of Years and Years started the rumour mill with a TikTok video that fans quickly pulled apart to suggest the title of the entry might be, ‘Dizzy’.
Last night, Olly presented a mock up of a weather report with the BBC Weather legend that is Carol Kirkwood. During the clip, which was posted across Olly’s socials and that of BBC Eurovision, Olly alluded to ‘Dizzy’ spells coming from Sweden.
It appears there is a rare phenomena of dizzy spells, running towards our dear island and it appears they come all the way from Sweden. From what we can see, there won’t be an end to these dizzy spells for the foreseeable just yet, and no telling if they’ll continue to go round and round or just eventually go back to the beginning.Olly Alexander
Today, Olly has finally ended all the speculation and confirmed his Eurovision entry and first solo single, ‘Dizzy’ will be released on March 1.
