After weeks of speculation, today, the BBC announced that the United Kingdom (UK) will be represented by Mae Muller with 'I Wrote a Song'.
The entry was decided in collaboration between the BBC and TaP music, the management and music publishing company who helped put together Sam Ryder's runner-up entry in 2022.
'I Wrote a Song' is co-written by Mae with Karen Poole and Lewis Thompson. Karen has written hits for Kylie Minogue, Lilly Allen and Sugababes, just to name a few artists. Lewis has written songs for Joel Corry (including the hit 'Head & Heart') and Rita Ora.
Mae has been releasing music since 2018 with her biggest hit a 2021 collaboration with Neiked and Polo G on the song ' Better Days'. The song reached no.16 on the ARIA Chart in Australia and the Top 40 in the USA and the UK.
She has also supported Little Mix on a 2019 tour, while many will know her as the little girl in Mika's music video for 'Grace Kelly'.
Mae lists Gwen Stefani, Florence and the Machine and Lily Allen as her musical influences and she also has over half a million followers on TikTok where she has been teasing her Eurovision entry.
The UK finished runner-up at Eurovision in 2022 and will host the 2023 Contest on behalf of Ukraine.
Their second place finish was their best for over 20 years with their last victory in 1997.
