She controversially lost out to Ireland’s Eurovision 2011 and 2012 representatives Jedward on a deadlock result in the live shows of X Factor UK in 2009.
And now, just hours before the United Kingdom decides on its Eurovision 2017 singer, Lucie Jones has emerged as the front-runner to win Eurovision: You Decide with her entry “Never Give Up On You”.
The Welsh singer isn’t giving up on the betmakers’ top spot, with odds of 6/4 from Ladbrokes and 13/8 from both Coral and William Hill.
However, this won’t be a cake walk. Olivia Garcia has seen her odds narrow with her entry “Freedom Hearts”, moving her up to second favourite. She’s currently at 11/4 with Ladbrokes and 5/2 from Coral and William Hill. Olivia is also in the lead in our Wiwi fan poll.
Things aren’t looking goods for the remaining finalists as all four have seen their odds tumble. Danyl Johnson is currently in third, Holly Brewer in fourth and Nate Simpson in fifth. Salena Mastroianni brings up the rear with odds of 9/1.
