Michael Rice to represent UK at Eurovision with ‘Bigger Than Us’

Culture A- A A+

Michael Rice will represent the UK with “Bigger Than Us” at the Eurovision in Tel Aviv after being voted the winner tonight.

The singer went up against five other contestants to see who would represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision. He went up against Holly Tandy, who performed the same song on Eurovision You Decide.

However, judges Rylan Clark-Neal, Mollie King and Marvin Humes selected Michael Rice’s rendition of the song to go forward to the public vote.

Rice then went up against Kerrie-Anne, who performed “Sweet Lies”, and Jordan Clarke, who performed “Freaks.”

But Rice ended up being the winner on the night after the public voted for him.

Speaking to Independent.co.uk earlier this week, Michael Rice said he would never have thought he could be in this position two years ago.

“I’d be so, so proud,” he said. “Even this morning I was listening to the track with me mam when it went on iPlayer and I was like ‘wow, it’s a really good song’.”

Michael Rice previously won the BBC’s All Together Now last year and has built up a steady fanbase since then.
