Eurovision 2014: Molly Smitten-Downes representing UK?

By Sam Rigby


Little-known artist Molly Smitten-Downes will reportedly be unveiled as the UK’s entry for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest tonight (March 3).

The 26-year-old was identified as this year’s artist after a number of people tweeted the news from her latest video shoot, BBC News reports.

The name of her song is Children of the Universe, according to a number of Twitter users.

Last week, it was announced that this year’s artist is an unknown act and had been selected through the BBC Introducing scheme, which champions undiscovered talent.

Smitten-Downes was noticed last year with her track Strange Alien and the song won an award at the Best of British Unsigned Music Awards in 2013.

This year’s act and song will be revealed tonight (March 3) by Scott Mills, who is presenting the coverage from 7.30pm via the Red Button and BBC iPlayer.

The 2014 Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark on Saturday, May 10.
