Speaking about her song, Mae said: “All my music kind of derives from my personal experiences but I just wanted to write something empowering, that would get everyone up off their seats.

“I think when we go through negative things like a breakup, or any kind of heartache, it’s really easy to focus on the negatives and get lost in that but I wanted to focus on the empowerment of that and how we can navigate those emotions to come out the other side, feeling confident.”

She teased of the performance: “You can expect some sass! It’s going to be fun and a big party.”

Eurovision 2023 airs tonight in the UK from 8PM on BBC One and online via BBC iPlayer.


The show is due to conclude at midnight but has often overran in past years.

As well as the TV airing, you can also listen in via BBC Radio 2.
