Huge British rock star will make surprise last-minute appearance at the Eurovision final | The Sun

SAM Ryder will be joined by a huge British rock star during tomorrow night’s Eurovision final.

The singer, 33, who finished second at last year’s contest, will perform during the interval and will be accompanied by Queen drummer Roger Taylor, 73.

Sam will sing his latest single Mountains during the interval at Eurovision 2023 and will be joined by Roger as well as a series of dancers.

They rehearsed their performance at Liverpool Arena this afternoon ahead of the main event at 8pm on BBC One on Saturday.

Sam previously competed with his track Space Man in Turin last May.

He met Roger when he performed with Queen last September at Taylor Hawkins’ tribute concert at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Several other previous Eurovision stars including Israel's Netta, Italy's Mahmood, Iceland's Daði Freyr, Duncan Laurence from the Netherlands, Sweden's Cornelia Jakobs and Liverpool's Sonia will also perform during the interval, celebrating 30 years since the latter came second at Eurovision in 1993.

In moving lyrics in his new song, Sam sings: £Rough seas might pull me under and dark clouds might dim my days.

“But there's always bright tomorrows when I close my eyes and say, ‘Remember how you've made it through the fire? Remember how you've come so far?’

“An unstoppable force of nature, yeah, that's what you are"

He wrote the song last autumn, just weeks before he released his No1 debut album There’s Nothing But Space, Man.

Sam told The Sun: “I was sitting on my couch at home and wrote it. This was the first song I’ve written by myself in years which was really nice.

“This is quite special so I’m thankful that this idea fell out of the sky.”
