Three of the contestants hoping to make it to May’s Eurovision final in Turkey are from Wales. Fame Academy finalist James Fox from Cardiff will sing Hold on to Our Love while another Welsh solo artist competing will be 18-year-old Madison Taylor from Newport. Making up the trio of Welsh hopefuls is Rhyl’s Anthony Scott-Lee who will be singing Leading Me On with his band Hyrise.
