Former X Factor Singer Lucie Jones to represent the UK at Eurovision
Former X Factor singer Lucie Jones will represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
She gies to Kyiv, Ukraine for the international competition after beating the five other hopefuls on Eurovision: You Decide.
Each of the contestants had previously appeared on The X Factor.
On Friday night’s show, hosted by Mel Giedroyc, they each sang for an expert panel, made up of Bruno Tonioli, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and CeCe Sammy.
Mel described it as the “single most important decision of the year”, before holding her finger to her earpiece to say she’d had confirmation that she wasn’t over-exaggerating.
But it was Lucie who impressed the judges the most with his/her rendition of Never Give Up On You.
The singer who is currently starring in the musical Rent and said there would be no bigger honour than representing the UK at Eurovision.
The UK will be hoping Lucie wins the competition since it was last won by a Brit in 1997 by Katrina & The Waves.
