UK Eurovision representative Sam Ryder’s has been announced as one of the artists who’ll be performing at Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee concert.
The concert will also include a range of other stars such as Duran Duran, Sir Rod Stewart, Sir Elton John and Andrea Bocelli who’ll also be performing.
The concert will be shown in the UK on the UK channel BBC One with more than 22,000 people attending, including thousands of key workers who were invited to the event.
Sam made history as the first UK entry to break into the top three of Eurovision this century with his song, Space Man.
When asked if he’d go back to Eurovision, Sam told BBC Breakfast:
‘Absolutely in a heartbeat,’
‘I don’t know if I’d do it next year, I think I’d still be catching up on sleep. It is brutal, the schedule for Eurovision.
‘The main thing, I really wish and hope that the future of Eurovision and the attitude changes. That was our goal right from the beginning to try and lift negative stigma, because I really believe that it’s unfounded, it shouldn’t exist.’
Aswell as taking part in the Queen’s Jubille concert, Sam is also hoping to reach Number 1 in the UK charts. This would mark the first time this has happened since Gina G represented the UK in 1996.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert starts on 4th June on UK channel BBC One.
