Once again the rumors had it! As reported on social media in the last few days it is James Newman to sing for the UK.
Earlier this year, the British broadcaster BBC has announced that this year they gave up on the national final “You Decides” and will internally select a big artist to represent them in a partnership with one of the biggest record companies BMG.
Two hours ago, it was officially announced that James Newman will sing “My Last Breath” in Rotterdam. the BBC has huge expectations from James that will try to bring the UK back to the contest top10. the last time the country ended up in the top 10 was in 2009 when Jade Ewen finished 5th in Moscow with “It’s My Time”
