Who is the UK’s 2023 Eurovision entry, Mae Muller? 

London-based singer, Mae Muller, has been chosen to represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool. But, for those who are unfamiliar with the popstar, let Robyn Bell give you a rundown…

If you haven’t come across Mae Muller on TikTok, you will soon be able to recognise her as this year’s Eurovision entry for the United Kingdom. The 25-year-old’s single for the beloved competition I Wrote a Song was released earlier this week and seems to be catchy and Eurovision-esque enough to get the UK a decent ranking at the contest later this year. 

Muller was working in a pub in Kentish Town, London, when she was signed with her manager. However, Muller has been in the spotlight since a young age as back in 2009, she appeared in MIKA’s smash-hit Grace Kelly.  

I Wrote a Song is an upbeat electronic pop song that wouldn’t be out of place in a club in Ibiza. Muller gives off Dua Lipa vibes with her ‘revenge on an ex’ single. The charts are full of revenge songs at the moment including the massive Flowers by Miley Cyrus and Kill Bill by SZA.

Mae also has a well-established following on TikTok and other social media platforms, with her music being streamed millions of times on YouTube and an amazing 2 billion streams on Spotify.  

She has toured with Little Mix, and recorded with Sigala, Billen Ted and Stefflon Don to name a few. 

With all her previous successes, it appears Mae Muller will be a popular entry. But she has a tough act to follow, with Sam Ryder placing second last year, the highest the UK has ever placed in over 20 years. Muller was born in 1997, the year the UK last won the competition with act Katrina and the Waves.  

Muller said: “I’ve loved watching Eurovision all my life, so to compete in such a massive music competition is simply brilliant. I’m a huge fan of so many of the artists that have found success at Eurovision, from Abba to Måneskin. Sam Ryder was so amazing last year and proved the UK can be back on the left-hand side [the top half] of the leader board.” 

The UK has finished last place five times in the last 2 decades. Let’s hope Mae can score the UK points with I Wrote a Song.  

The contest will run from Tuesday 9th May – Saturday 13th May.
