UK's Eurovision Tune Contest 2018 act chosen

The singer says getting picked was 'absolutely amazing'

Following a combined vote, presenters Mel Giedroyc and Måns Zelmerlöw revealed that SuRie had received the highest number of votes of the evening, therefore earning the wanted Eurovision right at the 2018 competition.

How was SuRie selected to represent the UK?

Introducing the seventh entry of the season: SuRie has won the British national final, Eurovision: You Decide, and will represent the United Kingdom at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with the entry Storm.

Once again, the BBC will use their show format Eurovision: You Decide, being previously used in the past two years.


You Decide was judged by McFly star Tom Fletcher, singer and TV presenter Rochelle Humes and TV presenter Rylan Clark-Neal. The victor will be selected via the combination of a public televote, consisting of televoting and online voting, and the votes of a professional jury panel.

SuRie and her song Storm, written by Nicole Blair, Gil Lewis and Sean Hargreaves, will head to Lisbon in May.

SuRie is no stranger to Eurovision - she was a backing singer for Belgian entry Blanche previous year, as well as Loic Nottet in 2015. Last year Lucie Jones came 15 out of 26 in Kiev with her soaring power ballad "Never Give Up On You" (I still sing this in the shower) - a result that was within sniffing distance of the top half of the table, which by United Kingdom standards is pretty much a win. It's a dynamic combination of a more intimate, piano lead, singer songwriter style start, building into this anthemic, soulful pop party!'
