The music video for the revamped version of “Storm”, the United Kingdom’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, was released today.
The revamped version of “Storm” was released on Wedensday on streaming services. “Storm” is the second entry in a row from the United Kingdom to be revamped after being selected, following “Never Give Up On You” by Lucie Jones last year.
SuRie is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest as she took to the stage in 2015 as a backing vocalist and dancer for Belgian singer Loic Nottet. She returned two years later as a backing singer for Blanche, also from Belgium.
SuRie will represent the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal in May. SuRie was selected after she won the United Kingdom’s national final show Eurovision: You Decide with her song “Storm”.
The United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest
The United Kingdom debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957 and holds the record for the most consecutive appearances in the contest. To date the UK has won the contest a total of five times, with their first victory coming in 1967 and their latest in 1997. The UK holds the record for the most second place finishes in the contest, having been runner-up a total of 15 times. Since 2000 the UK has finished within the top 10 only twice, this being in 2002 with Jessica Garlick and in 2009 with Jade Ewen. Last year the country found relative success in Kyiv, when Lucie Jones finished in 15th place with “Never Give Up On You”.
