Eurovision runner-up Sam Ryder breaks his silence after Mae Muller's crushing defeat | The Sun
EUROVISION runner-up Sam Ryder has broken his silence after Mae Muller's humiliating defeat.
Sam, 33, who finished second last year with his epic anthem Space Man, took to social media just hours after our 2023 hopeful Mae finished second from last.
But Sam failed to acknowledge the UK's crushing loss, instead reflecting on his own performance at the final instead.
Sam performed his new single Mountain on stage with Queen's Roger Taylor on drums, and that was all he was talking about the morning after our disappointing result.
The crooner shared footage of his epic turn on his instagram this morning (May 14) and captioned it: "WHEN YOU ARE SHREDDING AND ROGER TAYLOR IS SLAMMING THE HELL OUT OF THE DRUMS NEXT TO YOU 🤯🤯🤯".
He then offered fans the chance to win the guitar he was playing on stage.

Meanwhile, Mae broke her own silence in the early hours of this morning following her crushing loss.
