Eurovision singer James Newman says he ‘wants to focus on positives’ after getting 0 points

Singer James Newman has thanked fans and said he wants to “focus on the positives of this amazing experience” after he scored nil points in the finale of the Eurovision Song Contest.

He was the only contestant to score zero points from both the jury vote and from the public vote, putting him at the bottom on the leaderboard for the event, which was won by Italy’s rock band Maneskin with their song Zitti E Buoni.

It is only the second time the UK has scored zero points, 18 years after Gemini crashed out in 2003. It is the second Eurovision in a row that the UK has come last in the grand finale.

In posts on Twitter and Instagram, Newman said: “I want to focus on the positives of this amazing experience. I stood on a 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, my 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.”

Newman added that “there is no guarantee that a song you think will connect with people, will connect with an audience”.

He continued: “I just want to say a huge massive thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has been on this journey with me, supported me, listened to my music and filled my life with positivity and love.

“The times when it doesn’t play out how you hoped it might, teach you how to pick yourself up and be stronger x.”

His brother, the singer John Newman, said he was “so so so proud of what you have achieved!”

The contest’s winners, Maneskin, have faced intense speculation since the Saturday night show after lead singer Damiano David was accused of snorting cocaine by fans.

He strongly denied the speculation and pledged to undertake a drugs test as soon as he landed back in Italy on Monday.
