  • Lucie Jones is our UK Eurovision act for 2017! With a performance that packed a powerful emotional punch tonight at the Hammersmith Apollo, Lucie will be taking 'Never Give Up On You' to Kyiv in May.

    Her song was co-written by a former Eurovision winner – Emmelie de Forest, who represented Denmark in 2013. Competing against our five other acts, Lucie impressed the panel, including singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Strictly Come Dancing’s Bruno Tonioli.
