Hertfordshire singer-songwriter SuRie to represent United Kingdom at Eurovision

SuRie has been confirmed as the UK's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.

She certainly knows her stuff musically.

Speaking before her win, SuRie said: "My eyes were opened to the beauty of Eurovision a couple of years ago and I was working with the Belgians so false flagging for a different country but I had an fantastic time".

Speaking at the winners" press conference in Brighton, SuRie - real name Susanna Marie - revealed: "Sam Smith and I are from the same town. She's previously performed in the likes of the Royal Albert Hall and St. Mark's Basilica in Venice, and will now fly the flag for the United Kingdom at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal on May 12.

She's a graduate from the Royal Academy of Music and has sung backing vocals for Will Young and Coldplay's Chris Martin.

Making use of her piano skills, the ballad builds into a dancy pop song, although this isn't one of the singer's own tracks - it was written by Nicole Blair, Gil Lewis and Sean Hargreaves.
