After a lot of rumors in the past week, broadcaster BBC announced that James Newman will be their artist for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. He will sing the song ‘My Last Breath’, which premiered on Brittish radio on Thursday.
The song ‘My Last Breath’ aired for the first time around 10:30 CET on BBC Radio One. You are able to listen to it below:
James Newman – My Last Breath (UK Eurovision 2020):
James Newman is the brother of pop star John Newman. At the 2014 Brit Awards, James Newman won Brit Award for British Single of the Year for Waiting All Night. He has also made a career for himself as a songwriter, writing down songs for Little Mix, Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran and “Dying to Try”, the 2017 Irish Eurovision song for Brendan Murray.
Another gameplan for the United Kingdom in 2020
The Eurovision: You Decide format has been dropped by the BBC, after bad results in the last couple of years. In 2019 the UK even finished in last place again with ‘Bigger than us’ by Michael Rice.
The broadcaster is now working together with record label BMG and thus found a way to get James Newman to perform at Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam.
