Eurovision 2019 – United Kingdom

By Steve McSteveface

The United Kingdom song is called ‘Bigger Than Us and is performed by Michael Rice.

ARTIST

Michael, who has always watched Eurovision while growing up, came to the attention of the public after a YouTube video of him singing amassed over a quarter of a million views. That video led him to audition for, and eventually win the BBC One Entertainment show All Together Now. He gave his mum the majority of the £50,000 prize fund to invest in her waffle and crepe business. Michael’s performance in the final prompted 94 out of the 100 judges to take to their feet, including Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.

Michael is an enthusiastic advocate for anti-bullying, he recorded a single in support of the movement. He has visited many schools throughout the UK to speak on the subject, especially because he was bullied himself for… singing.

SONG

The song was written by Laurell Barker, Anna-Klara Folin, John Lundvik and Jonas Thander.

OPINION

Another predictable entry from the UK sadly. He can sing okay but he’s boring, the song is boring and the UK are boring. There is massive potential for this to fall very flat!

PREDICTION

This would be a non-qualifier if the UK had to go to the semi finals. Bottom three for sure!

LYRICS

“Hear these words that I sing to you
I will make it clear, it’s me and you
We can have this love that we’ll never lose
It’s bigger than us
Take my hand and I’ll lead you home
Can you understand? You will never be alone
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything we see
‘Cause I can feel the universe
When I’m feeling you breathe
It’s bigger than us
And it’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger
I won’t give up and I won’t let go
‘Cause this kind of love is gonna be our only hope
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything we see
‘Cause I can feel the universe
When I’m feeling you breathe
It’s bigger than us
And it’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger
Bigger, bigger, bigger…
It’s bigger than
Bigger, bigger, bigger…
It’s bigger than
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
This kind of love
Is bigger than everything we see
So much bigger
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything we see
‘Cause I can feel the universe
When I’m feeling you breathe
It’s bigger than us
And it’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger
Bigger, bigger, bigger…
It’s bigger than
Bigger, bigger, bigger…
It’s bigger than
It’s bigger”
