21-year-old Londoner, Jade Ewen, was this year’s United Kingdom candidate for the 54th Eurovision contest 2009 in Moscow, the capital of Russia. The title of the song she sang was “It’s My Time.” Britain was the 23rd act out of 25 countries to perform. Ewen’s performance was good for the fifth place. On stage, Jade Ewen was joined by musical giant Lord Lloyd-Webber on the piano, who has written Britain’s song. About Jade he said: “Jade performed brilliantly, as I knew she would. I am delighted with her fifth place finish; the United Kingdom can finally hold its head up high, after seven years of disappointing results.” Although Britain performed very well, there was patently obvious another country winning; Norway with its song ‘Fairytale.”This song was written and performed by 23-year-old Alexander Rybak.
Ewen said she was disappointed not to have won but she was delighted with her own performance and to have Andrew Lloyd Webber on stage with her and supporting her so much throughout the campaign.”
