The Eurovision 2021 final is here!

Tonight see’s the grand final of Eurovision 2021 take place in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.

Flying the flag for Great Britain is of course our very own James Newman. James is a 35-year-old singer-songwriter, originally from Settle in North Yorkshire. James has a string of hits to his name and has worked with some of the biggest artists in the UK, including Little Mix, Rudimental, Calvin Harris, and of course his brother John Newman.
Tonight comes off the back of the huge delay due to covid with last year’s show being cancelled and moved to this year. Most artists did get the chance to compete again but had to submit a new song.
Go James Eurovision
We asked James about his new entry  “Embers”:
“Embers” is about the glow in the fire that hasn’t burnt out, it’s about passion re-igniting and people coming back together and just because you haven’t been together for all this time, doesn’t mean that that spark isn’t still there. 
 
When we were writing it at the end of last year, we managed to do it safely before the end of lockdown, in the actual room, one of the writers, Connor Blake, had a list of titles and he suggested “Embers” and I was like, that’s sick!. It’s such a great thing for me to sing on the stage in Rotterdam, that got a positive, uplifting message, that life is coming back out of the darkness. 
 
As we have Eurovision Fever, We thought we’d show you some of our favourite Eurovision Anthems from over the years! Iconic!
