Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander will represent the United Kingdom at the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest, to be held in Sweden. Alexandar’s song, co-written with Due Lipa songwriter Danny L Harle, will reportedly be revealed to the public soon.
“As a young boy I always looked forward to this incredible event of unbridled joy, the wonderfully chaotic mix of musical styles, theatrical performances, genuine emotion and humor.” he said. “I really can’t believe I’m going to be part of such a special legacy and raise the flag for the UK in the happiest way, it will be an honor.”
Last year was not a particularly successful year for the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest. Mae Muller finished penultimate in the competition with her song “I Wrote a Song,” with only 24 points. This was a huge disappointment compared to the previous year, as the United Kingdom managed to finish in second place with Sam Ryder’s ‘Space Man’.
