Sterling failed to qualify for the Eurovision Song Contest, which will take place in Vienna, Austria on Saturday (23May15), after her Playing with Numbers tune, which she co-wrote, failed to make the grade.

Sweden and Norway are among the favourites to win this year's event - Mans Zelmerlow will represent Sweden with his song Heroes, while duo Morland and Debrah Scarlett's A Monster Like Me is Norway's entry.

Another front-runner is Israeli teenager Nadav Guedj and her catchy dance tune Golden Boy.

Ireland holds the record for the highest number of wins, having won the contest seven times - including three times in a row in the early 1990s. France, Luxembourg, the United Kingdom and Sweden have won five times.
