Say hello to Mae Muller, the UK’s coolest and vibiest Eurovision entrant of all time
Of course she’s a North London girly
Mae Muller has been revealed as the singer who will be representing the UK at Eurovision this year. The 25-year-old London-born singer will be performing her original track I Wrote A Song at the contest in Liverpool later this year where the UK will be hosting on behalf of reigning champions Ukraine.
Mae Muller is hoping to follow on from the success of last year’s British entrant, Sam Ryder, whose runner-up placement gave the UK our highest position at Eurovision in decades. Here’s everything we know about Mae Muller and her humble rise to Eurovision stardom.
Mae Muller already has a Eurovision connection
As a nine-year-old, Mae appeared in Eurovision 2022 host Mika’s music video for Grace Kelly. She was the little girl sitting on Mika’s piano in a green dress. Also in 2020 Mae reunited with the Grace Kelly music video director, Sophie Muller, on the videos for her singles So Annoying and I Don’t Want Your Money.
Mae takes a lot of inspiration from female icons such as Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse
Mae grew up listening to British musicians such as Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse. Similarly to those two female powerhouses, Mae’s lyrics are very real and candid. In her song Therapist, Mae sings: “You don’t need a girlfriend, you need a therapist.”
Mae Muller is biiiiiig on TikTok
Mae’s biggest musical hit came in 2021 when she teamed up with Neiked and Polo G on the track Better Days. It’s very Love Island and it ended up blowing up on TikTok and saw Mae land her first top 40 single in the UK and even peaked at 23 in the Billboard charts.
