She’s the Eurovision fan favourite and he’s a voice of BBC Radio 4. Now “Storm” songstress SuRie and radio presenter Paddy O’Connell will join forces to host the London Eurovision Party 2022.
On Sunday 5 April, the dynamic duo will make their return to the UK’s biggest and best Eurovision warm-up party at the Hard Rock Hotel in London. Paddy and SuRie were originally set to host the 2020 party before the event was cancelled.
Essex-born SuRie is a familiar face amongst Eurovision fans. She made her Eurovision debut in 2015 as a backing vocalist for Belgium’s Loïc Nottet, then acted as the musical director for Belgium’s Blanche in 2017. She sang for the UK at Eurovision 2018 in Lisbon, delivering a stunning performance for her country.
Meanwhile, Paddy O’Connell is widely known for his commentary work on Eurovision. He previously provided commentary on the Eurovision semi-finals for Three, and has often teamed up with Radio 2 legend Ken Bruce to share his thoughts on the song contest.
