She finished as runner-up on the most recent series of The Voice: la plus belle voix.
And in a few days time Lucie Vagenheim will go for gold once more as she competes in the semi-finals of Destination Eurovision.
Lucie, who from a young age has dance, sung and performed in the theatre, delivered a haunting performance of James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” during her blind audition, leading judges Mika and Florent Pagny to turn their chairs almost instantly.
Lucie also has a YouTube channel where she performs covers of songs like Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” and Woodkid’s “I Love You”.
In both instances she manages to put a new spin on the tracks, delivering them with heart, clear English and that beautiful voice.
Her Destination Eurovision entry “My World” is her debut single and, in keeping with previous songs in the selection, sounds thoroughly contemporary and now.
In the snippet she asks listeners: “Are you ready for my world, to enter my heart, are you ready for my world?”
YES WE ARE!
It’s clear that Lucie is a true Eurovision fan: In her video she speaks of regularly watching the show with her mother and being absolutely mad for Sweden’s staging.
