Scouts across the UK and the rest of the world are saying a massive ‘Jambo’ and good luck to Lucie Jones, the UK’s entry in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
Lucie is known across the Scouting world as part of the group ‘The Adventure’ who sung ‘Jambo’ the official song for the World Scout Jamboree 2007. The song was performed several times during the Jamboree and was even released in the UK charts, that summer making the top 100.
Lucie was involved in Scouting in Wales being an explorer and even performing in the Cardiff Scout’s and Guide’s Gangshow.
Since then she auditioned for Xfactor which saw her progress through to the live shows, loosing out in week 5 against Jedward. Following Xfactor she has had a career that has spanned the TV and Stage with performances in Les Miserables, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Midsomer Murders and Legally Blonde (The Musical).
This year, nearly ten years after her appearance at the World Scout Jamboree, sees Lucie take to the international stage again to perform at Eurovision 2017 to represent the United Kingdom singing ‘Never Give Up On You’.
From all at Scout Radio we wish her the best and hope she brings back Eurovision to the home of Scouting, and to get you in the mood you can relive ‘Jambo’ below.
