Reviewing Eurovision, NME wrote: “Eurovision 2022 was all about looking forward: Sam Ryder reminding us that the UK can actually win this thing, and Ukraine showing the world just how much agency it has. Yes, the contest can be silly – hello, ‘Give That Wolf A Banana’ – but it’s also strangely and fundamentally profound.”

Viral TikTok sensation Ryder went into the competition as the bookmakers second-favourite to win with his song ‘Space Man’. The track reached Number Two in the UK single charts, becoming one of the biggest selling tracks of 2022.
He also recently performed the song at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert on June 4, which was headlined by Queen, Diana Ross and Elton John.
Ryder is due to play brand-new London venue Outernet on November 24, with any remaining tickets available here.
