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.

Tonight, after the completion of all the second rehearsals of the Big 6, a recap video will be released with 30-second snippets of the performances, giving us a glimpse of how the acts will look on stage.

Eurovision 2023: United Kingdom’s First Rehearsal!

Today is the fifth day of rehearsals in Liverpool and the first rehearsals of the BIG 5 countries are going to be held today! Heading towards the end of this group’s rehearsals, next up on stage for their first rehearsal is the United Kingdom and Mae Muller with the song “I Wrote A Song”.

Who is Mae Muller?

Holly Mae Muller is a English pop singer and songwriter. She started by uploading demos of her songs in SoundCloud in 2017. Two years later, she was an opening act for Little Mix tour, where she started gaining fans. She is known worldwide with her pop hit “Better Days” in 2021 that charted in both UK and United States. Her Eurovision entry is the first entry from United Kingdom that debuted on the UK Singles Chart’s top 40 in over a decade.

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 officaly release to the public.

Mae’s outfit consists of total black, she combined trousers with a corset jacket. The performance starts on a raised plinth in front of the LED wall with a feature of huge pop art-style graphics. There is also a face split of Mae’s happening in two horizontally, giving the impression that she is inside her own head. It gives the vibe like it’s already taped and looks great live.

She’s accompanied by four dancers dressed in red and black, who join her at the front of the stage for a choreography in the second half of the song, the choreography is described like a dance routine. This performance builds up to a big old pop banger finish. What a better choice to close the Grand Final of Eurovision 2023!

United Kingdom: “I Wrote A Song” was written before the Eurovision proposal!

Mae Muller, the British representative for Eurovision 2023, was interviewed this morning by the hosts of This Morning show. There she talked about the procedure under which she was chosen, her exhausting rehearsal schedule, as well as her feelings about Eurovision.

According to Muller, the rehearsal schedule is tight but she seems happy and excited about the whole experience:

It is an honor representing the United Kingdom. It is surreal but I’m taking every day as it comes and it’s a lot of fun.

I’m rehearsing a lot, the preparation is wild and we have these pre-parties. I’m feeling ready now but I feel like by the 13th of May I’m going to be like locked in.

Bearing in mind that Mae Muller knows that she is UK’s next representative for 3 months, the hostess is wondering how Mae did not spill her secret, as she is a massive over-sharer.

I really had to make a cruise effort, i had to breathe through it. I was like Mae, don’t ruin this. I did tell my mom and dad because it would have been weird reading that in the news.

Some friends messaged me on the day and they were like “WHAT???” and I was like “Sorry”.

I Wrote A Song” was written before she was proposed to be the next British Eurovision participant.

It was like stars aligned because after two or three days, I met with my management and they were like, “what do you feel about Eurovision?”. They heard the song and they really did liked it. They wanted an answer like then and there. I was like, that’s exciting…yeah!

When I found out about Eurovision, I put my little Eurovision hat on and added a spoken word, that wasn’t in the song before. I thought it would be nice to have a moment where I could really like connect with people, because it is a big stage and i wanted an intimate moment. So, I went in and re-wrote it like 4-5 times.

The song has already won people’s hearts, admits Muller.

The people seem to be really enjoying it, are dancing to it and feel empowered, which is all I was asking for.

Regarding the story behind “I Wrote A Song“:

My way of dealing with things, whether it’s a heartbreak or a loss, is through writing, as it is empowering to me. You go through revenge and then you come out actually feeling empowered. That was my vision.

It seems that it was also the right moment for her to take on such a big project.

I have definitely had experiences that have helped me feel more prepared. If this was like 3 or 4 years ago, I genuinely feel like I just wouldn’t have felt ready. I think now with the experience I have had, although I don’t think anything can truly prepare you for that Eurovision wildness. I feel like I definitely have the tools now.

Moreover, she seems excited to be succeeding Sam Ryder, because Sam managed to change the whole perspective of the United Kingdom on Eurovision and this year there is a much more positive spirit.

About her outfit on Liverpool, she mentions:

This has been an ongoing conversation. Of course we know but it is just the final tweaks and it has to be right. I mean it’s one of my favorite things is figuring out the looks.
