When the BBC introduced us to Molly Smitten-Downes and her song “Children of the Universe”, y’all blew it up on Twitter. “Amazing”, “the best UK entry ever”, “young and fresh and now”—the love would not stop flowing. Molly’s good fortune continues. She has been shortlisted for a Glastonbury Emerging Talent Award. She’s currently in fourth place in our Eurovision 2014 poll. And she has stomped her way into eighth place in our search for Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2014.
We know you guys need to see the MSD live and now you have your chance. Our friends at the London Eurovision Party have confirmed that Molly will be the headline act on April 13. Power to the people…uh, oh, oh, oh….
Are you absolutely dying now? And have you bought your tickets yet?
