James Newman, 35, has addressed his Eurovision Song Contest performance on Saturday night that saw him receive zero points from the judges and the viewers. The UK’s representative gave an impressive performance of his song Embers but unfortunately, it was not enough to be victorious in the contest.

On Twitter, he typed: “I want to focus on the positives of this amazing experience. I stood on stage and sang to hundreds of millions of people with a song that I wrote and love.

“I’ve learnt so much from the amazing people who gave everything to help me live my dream, the dancers, the choreographer, my vocal coach, everyone from my label, my manager and the BBC and all the people behind the scenes at Eurovision and the arena.

“All these people are the best in the business and I got the chance to work with them and share this crazy experience that I’m so lucky to have the chance to do.

“The thing about writing songs is that there is no guarantee that a song you think will connect with people, will connect with an audience.
