This year’s entrant for the UK is TikTok star Sam Ryder, who will sing SPACE MAN. Ryder told the Evening Standard: “Those three minutes on a stage in Turin will go past in the blink of an eye.

“And if you’re fearful about your decision, or where you come on a leaderboard, it goes by even quicker. It’s so important for me to try and stay calm, focused and centred through the whole thing because I want to enjoy it.”

Alvan and Ahez will perform Fulenn for France, while Italy’s Mahmood and Blanco will compete with Brividi.

Spain’s Chanel will sing SloMo, and Malik Harris will represent Germany with Rockstars.
