Eurovision fans can’t get over how well the UK fared after Sam Ryder’s success

Sam Ryder has had the UK’s best Eurovision result in 24 years and fans can’t get over it.

The singer finished second on the standings after performing his song Space Man at the Eurovision Song Contest held in Turin, Italy on Saturday night.

It turned out to be a remarkable turnaround from last year’s dreaded zeros, and it’s the UK’s highest since 1998 when Imaani’s Where Are You? finished just behind Israel’s Dana International, who won with her song Diva.

The UK had led the vote for most of Saturday night’s results after Sam’s performance came out on top.

However, the crowd overwhelmingly supported Ukraine, which won the competition with 631 points on the standings, while the UK took 466 points.

On social media, people rejoiced that our country was finally doing well in the competition again:

After the result, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was “incredibly proud” of Sam Ryder and how “he represented the UK brilliantly”.
