Brooke is a singer from Northern Ireland who competed in The Voice UK in 2020. She was successful on the show and reached the final of the series, finishing in joint 3rd position.
Inspired by Blondie meets The Gossip, the fiery and empowering track narrates how you should never settle for anyone who doesn’t fulfil your needs. Brooke shares, “I was reading Debbie Harry’s autobiography and wanted to encapsulate the attitude she portrayed in her life.” Oozing with energy and sass, the songwriter demonstrates her impressive and powerful vocal range, which soars atop a throbbing beat and playful instrumentation.
This year Ireland will return to a national selection for the first time since 2015, and as with previous years the selection will take the form of a special Eurovision edition of the popular long running, live entertainment show — ‘The Late Late Show‘. For the first time ever, Ireland will use an international jury, along with a national jury and public vote.
