The United Kingdom last participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2005. The country’s long-awaited return to the contest is finally here. And now we know, Freya Skye will represent the nation with the song “Lose My Head.”
United Kingdom JESC 2022: Freya Skye – Lose My Head
13-year-old Freya Skye will sing for the UK in Yerevan with “Lose My Head.”
The uptempo pop number’s colourful video includes a carefully choreographed performance and heavily features the colour red. Our girl has a visible thrown, helping define this new queen of the divadom.
The high-energy love song is fitting with the recent trend of Junior Eurovision winners featuring catchy, up-tempo hooks.
The United Kingdom at Junior Eurovision
This year marks the UK’s fourth participation at Junior Eurovision and the BBC’s first entry. Prior to 2022, the British entry was organised by rival broadcaster ITV.
Back in August, upon the exciting confirmation that the United Kingdom will finally return to the contest, Patricia Hidalgo, Director BBC Children’s and Education, said: “We are beyond excited to bring the Junior Eurovision Song Contest to the BBC for the first time, and to showcase the diverse young musical talent from across Europe for children and their families to discover and enjoy together […] I can’t wait to unveil our own musical talent who will proudly represent the UK.”
The show will be broadcast live on CBBC, BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022 takes place on Sunday 11 December in Yerevan, Armenia, following the Maléna’s victory at the 2021 contest with “Qami Qami”.
