The BBC has revealed that 13-year-old Freya Skye will represent the United Kingdom at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Yerevan.

Freya will perform Lose My Head – song about friendships, moving on and leaving the past behind. The powerful pop song was written by Jack Hawitt, Amber Van Day and Deepend. Jack Hawitt is an artist, songwriter and producer from London. His credits include working with Ava Max, Jonas Blue, Pharrell Williams, Megan Thee Stallion and R3HAB. Singer/songwriter Amber Van Day has had over 250 million streams. Dutch DJ Deepend has supported David Guetta on a sell-out European tour and collaborated with artists including Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, JP Cooper and James Blunt.

Freya started to sing at 5, after receiving a karaoke machine as a present. During lockdown, the singer-songwriter took the opportunity to release her debut single and write more songs, including I Love the Way, which featured on BBC Introducing. 

In her spare time, Freya enjoys cuddling up with her dog Ruby and watching movies, teaching herself the piano and following her favourite football team, Tottenham Hotspur.

Freya found out she had been chosen to represent the UK when she was taken by her parents to a London theatre on the pretext that she needed to do one more audition. Instead she was surprised by Lucie Jones, who broke the news that she had already been selected to go to Yerevan. Freya is a big fan of Lucie, who represented the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017.

Freya says:

‘I couldn’t believe it when I found out. I was not expecting it at all, it still doesn’t feel real that I’m going to be representing the UK. I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to be a part of something so exciting. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity so I’m going to go and give it my everything and I hope to do the UK proud.’
