Eurovision Song Contest 2019 UK hopeful Michael Rice is due to take to the stage in Tel Aviv tonight with his ballad, Bigger Than Us.

The 21-year-old singer has revealed that last year’s UK entrant SuRie sent him a ‘lovely card’ full of survival tips and kind words of support to help him prepare to take to the stage in Israel.

Speaking at a Eurovision press conference, Michael said: ‘I had some lovely tips from SuRie, she sent me a lovely card with a llama on the front.

‘Survival tips for Eurovision, any amount, and then another side with a lovely message to say like, “Keep going, make sure you keep your confidence up, don’t let anyone bring you down, and just really go out there and just smash it and sing your heart out.”’

He added: ‘She’s been an amazing person to have as a part of the team. It’s been amazing to see the support from everyone.’

Prior to landing his Eurovision gig, Michael was crowned the winner of the first series of BBC singing competition All Together Now.

Although he admitted he isn’t hopeful about his chances tonight, he assured he is still going to sing his heart out and that it has been an ‘honour’ to represent the UK.

‘I’m just glad the UK public voted for me to represent, because it’s an honour,’ he said in Tel Aviv ahead of his performance.

Eurovision fans will remember SuRie’s performance last year was interrupted by a protester who stormed the stage.

Viewers will be holding their breaths to see if there will be any more controversial moments tonight.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 Grand Final airs tonight on BBC One from 8pm.
