Who are they? Holly Tandy, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire , took part in The X Factor in 2017 when she was just 16. Nicole Scherzinger praised her "big voice", but she struggled in the live shows, eventually finishing seventh. She has a nice hat.
Hartlepool busker Michael Rice won All Together Now - That 's The Singing contest with 100 judges (and Geri Halliwell ) - in 2018. He was working on his debut single when the opportunity to enter Eurovision came along.
How do the two versions differ? Michael has made it into a piano ballad That showcases his soulful vocals. It goes a bit haywire at the end with an OTT gospel choir and an unnecessary key change.
Holly's version is more up-tempo with a pleasant Acoustic Guitar and That weird "Ghost Cat " noise That 's been on every pop single since Justin Bieber 's What Do You Mean. For good measure, she's thrown in a handclap-assisted breakdown for The Final chorus, which could play well in front of an audience.
