Eurovision You Decide: Michael Rice. Watch him perform his great winning number BIGGER THAN US.
Michael Rice is a winner. He won the BBC talent show All Together Now last year. Now Michael has been chosen to fly the flag for the UK at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The young talent was picked in a TV viewers’ vote on Friday February 8.
Eurovision’s big night is Saturday May 18 in Tel Aviv.
The 21-year-old is from Hartlepool. His talent has been heard for some time because he was also on The X Factor in 2014.
Michael will now travel to Israel in May in the hope of impressing Eurovision fans with his rousing anthem Bigger Than Us. He is an amazing performer and his talent as a singer is bound to get him a trophy.
The UK has struggled in recent years – it has not won for 22 years and has not finished in the top 10 for a decade.
Last year Israeli singer Netta won the Eurovision honour with her quirky song Toy, which encouraged people to celebrate their differences.
The winning country usually hosts the following year’s competition, and the 2019 event will take place in Tel Aviv on 18 May.
