She is the second background singer of former years, who is doing the step to the front. And she is also singing for another country, than the country she was backing singer for. The other one is Cesar who sang for Bulgaria in the back and now is represeting Austria.
SuRie sang for Belgium in Vienna and Kiev. Now she is represting the UK. The difference, she was no internal selection like Cesar, she had to fight for the ticket.
In a BBC national final which seemed to had all ingredients to be a fab show, like a former eurovision winner as co host (Mans), turned into a weak edition of national selection. Weak performances and songs. SuRie was the outstanding performance on this evening and won the ticket to Lisbon.
2017 on the red carpet in Kiev Eurovision on top had the chance to speak to SuRie. At that time we told her "maybe one day you will sing and represent a country"... we didn't know it would turn reality so fast. But we are happy for her and wish all the best.
