Former Les Mis star SuRie to sing for United Kingdom at Eurovision

Katrina and The Waves won Eurovision 1997

Introducing the seventh entry of the season: SuRie has won the British national final, Eurovision: You Decide, and will represent the United Kingdom at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with the entry Storm.

Speaking after her win at the Brighton Dome, SuRie said she thought she would win.

She describes the song as "a smash" and says it is an 'anthemic, soulful pop party'.

The singer has attended the competition twice before as a backing vocalist, first for Belgian contestant Loïc Nottet in Vienna in 2015, and then for another Belgian act, Blanche, in Kiev in 2017.

The former backing singer for Chris Martin and Will Young has also starred in Les Miserables.

Last week Cork told the Press Association she was "buzzing" and spoke of her belief that "music can save the world". "It's about positivity, diversity and celebrating all the good things".

"To be involved from my country, I'm a proud Brit".

Speaking about her previous Eurovision experiences a few weeks ago, she said: "My eyes were opened to the beauty of Eurovision a couple of years ago and I was working with the Belgians, so false flagging for a different country, but I had an fantastic time".

This evening saw the third annual Eurovision: You Decide show taking place in the United Kingdom, in which a total of 6 artists competed for the right to represent the nation at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.

A panel of experts - including Ryan Clark-Neal, Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes and McFly's Tom Fletcher - offered their creative guidance but the decision was ultimately left in the hands of 8 industry experts and the viewing public, who were asked to take part in a live vote to select this year's winning entry.
