Molly Smitten-Downes has been one of the bookies’ favourites for weeks. After Eurovision in Concert she is one of ours, too.
Miss Molly is incredibly down-to-earth and candid. During our interview she discussed her reservations about accepting the BBC’s invitation to sing at Eurovision, and how their hands-off approached encouraged her to take on the challenge. “They didn’t give me any direction artistically,” she says. “They just it needed to be three minutes long.”
She also discusses her edgy looks, her attempts at going vegetarian and her encounters with Eurovision fans. But the biggest takeaway is about her song “Children of the Universe.”
“The message is don’t forget your worth,” she says. “Don’t forget how powerful you are. I think every human being on this planet is so powerful that we have no idea actually. We forget just how powerful we are. It’s about being in the a dark place and forgetting that and feeling that you don’t have much of an impact and then realising you are integral to everything.”
