The London-born singer-songwriter will compete with her track ‘I Wrote A Song’, hoping to replicate the success Sam Ryder had at last year’s event.

Describing her selection as “a dream”, the 25-year-old said, “To compete in such a massive music competition is simply brilliant.”

“I’m a huge fan of so many of the artists that have found success at Eurovision, from ABBA to Måneskin,” she added.

“Sam Ryder was so amazing last year and proved the UK can be back on the left-hand side of the leaderboard.”

Have a listen (and a watch) of the official UK Eurovision track Muller will be entering the competition with below.

Muller’s selection followed a similar process as last year, namely she was chosen by the same group who picked Ryder, TaP Music. 

The music management company, which has previously worked with the likes of Dua Lipa and Ellie Goulding, has inevitably bigged-up their new pick, describing Muller as “the most wonderfully warm and fun personality.”

“We have always been fans of Mae for her voice, songs and star charisma,” the company added, following the news of the selection, “and when we heard ‘I Wrote A Song’, we were really taken by its impactful message – ‘songs as a form of therapy’ (a great message for the biggest song contest in the world).”

A lot of noise has been made around Eurovision this week, after tickets for the event went on sale, before selling-out in 36 minutes.

Liverpool to host Eurovision song contest

Liverpool will be the host city for the Eurovision Song Contest this year, after a lengthy selection process.

Alesha Dixon, Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham, and Ukrainian singer Julia Sanin were also recently named as hosts for the competition, meaning many of the unknowns around this year’s competition have been answered. 

All that remains now is for UK Eurovision fans to sit tight and wait for the semi-final events on 9 and 11 May before the final on Saturday 13 May.
