The former 'Voice' contestant is competing to become the UK's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest in May, and he's revealed he didn't have any second thoughts about accepting the invitation from the BBC.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, the singer explained: "I was doing a pantomime in the new Wimbledon theatre and my agent contacted me saying, 'Look, I've just had the BBC contact me saying will you be a part of Eurovision?'

"I was like, 'Hold the front door! Did you just say Eurovision?' And they were like, 'Yeah.' And I was like, 'Sold, in, done and dusted, I'll take it.'"

And Liam revealed he is looking forward to appearing on the show and performing the song 'Astronauts', which he's described as "relatable" but also "different".

Looking forward to his TV appearance, he shared: "It's just so relatable, ageless, timeless. It's just got that British singer-songwriter feel ... but it's also got that eurobeat drop to it and that's what's so exciting. Also, it's different - it's very different."

What's more, Liam revealed he sees the song as a metaphor, rather than something to be taken "literally".

He reflected: "I've said it would be amazing to be an astronaut.

"However, it would really be more about relating it to a personal experience in my life. I would change the lyrics about astronauts and think of it more like, 'I can be your rock, I can be your shoulder to cry on.'"
