While last year's winner was Ukraine's 'Stefania' performed by Kalush Orchestra, the ongoing conflict following Russia's invasion meant that the 2023 competition is being hosted by the runners-up, the UK, in Liverpool.
Mae has been releasing musing since back in 2018, and scored an international hit in 2021 with 'Better Days' in collaboration with Neiked and Polo G.
The single went to number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 32 in the UK.
