About Joe and Jake

Joe and Jake met each other after competing in The Voice UK in 2015.

Joe made it to the second week of the live shows, whilst Jake was eliminated in the knockout round of the competition.

The pair decided to join together as a duo after the competition.

Joe Woolford was born in Ruthin in Wales. Having grown up listening to artists such as Tupac, he originally used to be a rap artist before moving to different genres with his song writing.

Jake Shakeshaft was born in Stoke-on-Trent. He’s fairly new to the music scene, having taken up playing the guitar and beginning to play solo gigs in the last few years. 
In 2014 he reached the final five in the NUA Entertainment Next Big Thing competition.

The duo signed a contract with Sony Music following their win in the UK national final.

About the song You're Not Alone

You’re not alone was written by Matt Schwartz, Justin Benson and S. Kanes.

The song was announced as one of the six that would compete to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in the BBC’s Eurovision: You Decide show.

The duo won the competition ahead of the five other acts.

Lyrics of You're Not Alone

Heartbeat, when you’re not around it’s beating slow
And it’s something that I’ve never know, oh whoa…
I’ll be, I’ll be the answer you’ve been waiting for
I’ll be the truth that you’ve been looking for, oh whoa…

You’re not alone, we’re in this together
All that you want is right here forever
And they don’t need to kno-o-ow, oh oh oh
And they don’t need to know

You’re not alone, we’re in this together
All that you want, I’m right here forever
And they don’t need to kno-o-ow, oh oh oh
And they don’t need to know

You’re free, free to let go ’cause I’ll be here for you
And when you fall I’ll be your parachute, oh whoa…
I, I, I feel like I’m dancing in the sky-y-y
I come alive when I’m with you
I come alive when I’m with you

You’re not alone, we’re in this together
All that you want is right here forever
And they don’t need to kno-o-ow, oh oh oh
And they don’t need to know

I, I, I feel like I’m dancing in the sky-y-y
I come alive when I’m with you
I come alive when I’m with you

Don’t speak, your smile tells me all I need to know
Your eyes show me where I want to go, oh whoa…

You’re not alone, we’re in this together
All that you want is right here forever
And they don’t need to kno-o-ow, oh oh oh
And they don’t need to know

I, I, I feel like I’m dancing in the sky-y-y
I come alive when I’m with you
I come alive when I’m with you

    Please don’t change the song! “Made Of Stars” is just wonderful and stands out of all the other songs at Eurovision this year (I can’t stop listening to it). In comparison “Somebody Out There” is just a mediocre copy of international standard popsongs you hear a hundert times a day on the radio and will be forgotten right after the last tone.

    Be clever, Israel and stay with “Made Of Stars” which fits perfectely to Hovi Star.

    Well although your opinion is respected i truly think that you are in the minority of the eurofans that favor this song.
    Its still fine descent song but its too weak.Its not that good song really and they definitely need to either revamp it or compete with another different new song in Stockholm.

  • FrankImWesten

    It is very generous of you, to respect my modest opinion 🙂
    But how do you know that only a minority of eurofans like the song? I don’t know about any survey on this. The only survey I know is that a majority of Israeli voters (no matter if they are eurofans or not) voted for the song, which means it can’t be that bad and unwelcome.
    I don’t see any reason why Hovi should change his entry and sing a song which only came third instead of his (maybe revamped) winning song.

    To Gil Laufer – Could you please share the link to the Israel Hayom article? I’d love to read it.

    Well Ella lost in Israel’s NF because Hovi delived a better lve performance & not because her song was inferior than his.
    Anyway.Now its confirmed that Hovi will gonna keep his own song & will not change it.
    And Its not that i don’t like it.Its still likable song.
