Bigger Than Us

On the 8th of February, Michael Rice was chosen by the public to represent the United Kingdom at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest with 'Bigger Than Us'.

Preview video

Michael, who has always watched Eurovision while growing up, came to the attention of the public after a YouTube video of him singing amassed over a quarter of a million views. That video led him to audition for, and eventually win the BBC One Entertainment show All Together Now. He gave his mum the majority of the £50,000 prize fund to invest in her waffle and crepe business. Michael’s performance in the final prompted 94 out of the 100 judges to take to their feet, including Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.
Michael is an enthusiastic advocate for anti-bullying, he recorded a single in support of the movement. He has visited many schools throughout the UK to speak on the subject, especially because he was bullied himself for... singing.
