Erin Mai is 13 and comes from Llanrwst, North Wales. Erin has loved performing all her life. Before her Junior Eurovision journey, Erin began singing traditional Welsh songs before turning her talents to pop music thanks to her mentor, Tara Bethan.

One of Erin's earliest memories is performing ballet on the very stage where Wales’ live final took place. When she is not attending her local performing arts school, Pearl Shaw School of Performing Arts, Erin spends her time swimming, mountain biking, acting and dancing. Tap, jazz, modern, ballet – she loves them all!

Erin attended Wales’ national selection live final in 2018. Watching from the audience, Erin never imagined that she would be on the same stage one year later. She is now ready to do her country proud. "We have a lot of old traditions in Wales, so I'm really excited to bring our tradition of clog dancing to the Eurovision stage! It's such an old dance, but I can't wait to show Europe and the world that old traditions can be contemporary and hopefully, really cool."

Erin describes her song, Calon yn Curo, as one "about the moment before you step onto the stage. The stage can be anything, from the Eurovision stage to a football pitch, to stepping up to those people being nasty to you. Once you get over the nerves and build up the courage, you can achieve anything, and then share that special moment with everyone around you."

Lyrics of Calon yn Curo (Heart Beating)

  • Welsh
  • English
Calon yn curo, enaid yn canu. Lleisiau, y curiadau yn adeiladu. Bwrlwm y gynulleidfa yn arafu. Rhannu y foment, Mae’n brofiad cofiadwy. Rhannu y foment, Calon yn curo, calon yn curo. Rhannu y foment, Calon yn curo, calon yn curo. Camu i’r llwyfan, i’r goleuadau. Gwynebau yn gwenu, agor calonau. Emosiwn yn gorflifo mewn curiad. Un agwedd, un symudiad. Rhannu y foment, Calon yn curo, calon yn curo. Rhannu y foment, Calon yn curo, calon yn curo. Sefwch yn dal, sefwch i fyny, Rhannwch y neges drwy y gerddoriaeth. Pawb yn gyfartal, does dim gwahaniaeth. Rhannu y foment, Calon yn curo, calon yn curo. Rhannu y foment, Calon yn curo, calon yn curo.
Heart beating, Soul singing. Voices, the beats building. The buzz of the audience calming. Sharing the moment, It’s a memorable experience. Sharing the moment, Heart beating, heart beating. Sharing the moment, Heart beating, heart beating. Stepping onto the stage, Into the lights. Faces smiling, hearts opening. Emotion overflowing in rhythm. One mindset, one movement. Sharing the moment, Heart beating, heart beating. Sharing the moment, Heart beating, heart beating. Stand tall, stand up, Share the message through the music. We’re all equal, there’s no difference. Sharing the moment, Heart beating, heart beating. Sharing the moment, Heart beating, heart beating.
