Mae Muller recalls her ‘amazing experience’ touring with Little Mix after being revealed as the UK’s Eurovision Song Contest 2023 entry.

The singer, 25, will fly the flag for her home country with her own track I Wrote A Song, at the live final in Liverpool in May.

Mae sits down with Scott Mills for a special interview airing Thursday on BBC One ahead of The Apprentice.

And in an exclusive clip, Mae gushes that while touring with Little Mix, she was tasked with “trying to win over” huge crowds that were waiting for the iconic girl band to perform.

Mae was one of Little Mix’s opening acts on their 2019 LM5 tour, telling Scott, “I went from shows with 300 people to 20,000, so I basically have to go there every night to win over 20,000 people.”

The singer, who jump-started her music career by uploading demos to Soundcloud, adds, “They were like ‘we’re here for LM, who are you?'” but it was really great.

Scott notes that Mae performed at the Liverpool Arena during the tour, which will host the Eurovision final.

Mae then adds, “May I just tell you, I’m sure you already know.

“The Liverpools know how to have fun, they just gave me the best energy.”

Mae added that she is already getting tips from Sam Ryder, the last British Eurovision Song Contest entrant, who finished a shocking second behind winner Ukraine, Britain’s best result in years.

She said, “We talked to each other yesterday, he sent me some voice notes, just the sweetest man in the world, he also gave me some tips.”

Mae will take the stage at the live final in Liverpool on May 13 with her track I Wrote A Song.

It was previously revealed by The Daily Mail that Mae was chosen by music industry experts in the hope that she will follow British star Sam Ryder to success from last year when he came second to the Ukrainian competitor with his smash hit SPACE MAN.

Sources say the decision to choose Mae has been made in recent days and they are confident she will win ‘much more’ than zero points when she takes the stage in Liverpool in May.

One said: ‘Mae is an extraordinary talent and there is little doubt that she will make the country proud and hopefully replicate the success and euphoria that Sam brought to last year’s game.

“A lot of time and effort went into choosing the best singer for the job, she may not be a household name yet and of course the people who picked her expect people to ask who she is, but they think the nation will love her like those all over Europe.’

The competition is being held in the UK for the first time in 25 years.

While Mae will be unknown to most, she supported popular girl group Little Mix on their 2019 tour and appeared in a 2007 music video for pop star Mika’s hit song Grace Kelly when she was just ten years old.

She also attended the £27,000-a-year Fine Arts College in Hampstead, North London, with the likes of Brooklyn Beckham and Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s son Rocco.

Mae started writing her own songs at the age of eight before dropping out of college and getting a job at an American Apparel clothing store.

She later took up work in a pub in Kentish Town, North London, so she could focus on her music during the day.

She recently admitted that her musical inspirations include Gwen Stefani, Florence and the Machine, and Lily Allen.

Mae also revealed that she first became interested in music when her mother played Dixie Chicks’ album Home.

Eurovision 2023: Meet the Act will be broadcast tonight at 20:55 on BBC One and iPlayer.
