Eurovision 2023: United Kingdom’s second rehearsal!

The last of the Big 6 to rehearse today is the host country, the United Kingdom, with Mae Muller and “I wrote a song“.

Who is Mae Muller?

Holly Mae Muller is an English pop singer and songwriter. She became known by uploading demos of her songs online while she increased her fanbase by being the opening act of Little Mix. In 2021 her song “Better Days” charted in both the UK and the United States, having today more than 397 million streams on Spotify. She was internally selected to represent the United Kingdom in this year’s contest, managing to be the first UK act in more than a decade to debut in the  Top 40 UK Singles Chart.

The rehearsal

Unfortunately this year, accredited journalists don’t get the chance to watch the first and second rehearsals, so we only get the information and content that the organizers officially release to the public through and the official social media accounts of the contest.

Mae is on stage with four dancers dressed in red and black while she is dressed in a total black outfit. For the first part of the song, they are all standing in an elevated platform which has led screen in front, with pop art style graphics appearing on the led screens, including Mae’s face being cut in two, giving the illusion that they are performing inside her head. For the last part, they all move to the front of the stage performing the choreography. No major changes done for the second rehearsal.

United Kingdom is allocated to perform last at this years contest and this will definitely be quite a closing act! After 20 years of bad luck in the contest, last year Sam Ryder brought a second place finish back home. It seems that Mae will also do well and be on the left side of the scoreboard, a far cry from the days when UK was struggling to get points.
