UNITED KINGDOM – “Believe me, it’s something I considered so much before saying yes to the opportunity,” he told hosts Josie and Phillip Schofield.
“For all of that, Phil, I love it so much. I’ve been watching it since I was a kid and my enthusiasm is just so much greater than my fear.”
“I love singing and singing is about connecting with people. And it’s connecting with those people that have been supporting you. And for me over the past two years, so many amazing, lovely people around Europe have been watching my videos on social media and rooting for me.”
“To be able to go over there and go to Turin on May the 14th and sing for some of those people, I can’t think of the boxes right that I’m not ticking as a singer or as an artist and a performer.”
“If I let fear of where I come on a scoreboard define what I want to do with it — in any aspect of my life. Right now it’s Eurovision. But I’m sure there’s gonna be things later on in my life that I don’t want fear to define. I want to go there and sing my head off.”
