In the past, the UK’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest has been decided by the public but this year was slightly different. James Newman was revealed to be this year’s performer on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2 and the official Eurovision Twitter account.
However, after hearing the single My Last Breath, fans of the Song Contest were divided with many uncertain it would make an impact in May when the competition takes place.
Taking to Twitter to comment, one fan wrote: “Why is it so disappointing?”
Another added: “Worst song a ballad again we expected a banger not this snooze fest.”
“I like it but in terms of competitiveness the song will just fade into the background and won’t improve our recent attempts,” a third shared.
