UK win Eurovision

SuRie has won the public and jury's hearts at the Eurovision: You Decide contest, to become the UK's representative in this year's Eurovision Song Contest which shall take place on the 12th of May 2018 in Lisbon.

The song that SuRie auditioned with to win her spot at Eurovision is called “Storm”. Making use of her piano skills, the ballad builds into a dancy pop song, although this isn’t one of the singer’s own tracks – it was written by Nicole Blair, Gil Lewis and Sean Hargreaves. SuRie said: “Storm is a smash! It’s a dynamic combination of a more intimate, piano lead, singer-songwriter style start, building into this anthemic, soulful pop party.”

SuRie was one of six acts to take part in the BBC’s Eurovision: You Decide 2018 programme, where viewers voted for their favourite song to take on Europe. Other singers who lost out to her included former The Voice UK contestant Jaz Ellington, ex Britain’s Got Talent star Asanda, West End performer Liam Tamne, girl group Goldstone, and singer, actress and DJ RAYA.

SuRie told Sky News after being chosen: “I can’t believe this is happening, it’s absolutely amazing”.“It’s such an honour to have the opportunity to represent a country I’m very, very proud of and that I know I can do good things in Lisbon for, so thank you to everyone who voted and supported me. This is amazing.”

SuRie entered Eurovision: You Decide on 7 February. She was the 20/1 outsider to claim the United Kingdom ticket to Lisbon but the song created a huge wave that carried it over the finish line in first place.

Actress and singer SuRie, real name Susanna Cork, is a born performer – she started writing her own songs when she was just 12 years old. She certainly knows her stuff musically. Her background is in classical oboe, piano and singing - and she performed as a child soloist at the Royal Albert Hall and St Paul’s Cathedral, where her audience included Prince Charles.

Graduating from the Royal Academy of Music, SuRie went on to do backing vocals for the likes of Coldplay’s Chris Martin and former Pop Idol winner Will Young, and teaches at London’s Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.

The Storm revamp sees the strings that lead into the chorus reduced in power and the beat of the song and vocals enhanced as the song builds to a big finish. The arrangement has been modified slightly, again showcasing SuRie’s vocal power perfectly. There’s no question, SuRie has the ability to match her previous results at the Eurovision Song Contest.

SuRie is a Eurovision veteran compared to many of the wide-eyed contestants who take to the stage. The singer has attended the competition twice before as a backing vocalist, first for Belgian contestant Loïc Nottet in Vienna in 2015, and then for another Belgian act, Blanche, in Kiev in 2017.

SuRie is confident the UK can bag glory for the first time since 1997 with her track “Storm”. She said: “We can win, of course we can. Ultimately it’s a song contest so it’s all going to boil down to the songs. That’s all that matters. So why can’t we win? We can!"
