This year saw the Eurovision Song Contest hosted in Malmo, Sweden following their victory in Liverpool last year when the United Kingdom hosted the show on behalf of Ukraine.

Olly Alexander represented the UK with his track Dizzy. He finished last in 18th spot (out of 25) tonight with a total of 46 points.

All of Olly’s points came from the juries of the 37 countries involved with ZERO points from viewers across Europe (and Australia and the Rest Of The World), leaving him on the right hand side of the leaderboard.

However Olly did improve on last year’s performance where Mae Muller finished second from last.

In 2022, Sam Ryder finished in second place with his song Space Man.

Meanwhile Norway were the unlucky country to come last with a total of 16 points – although they at least did secure support from viewers.
