James Newman has expertly hit back at Piers Morgan after the former Good Morning Britain host mocked the singer’s ‘crap’ Eurovision Song Contest entry.
On Saturday, James finished the contest in last place with zero points after performing his single Embers.
While the people of the United Kingdom despaired with many blaming Brexit and ‘politics’, Piers tweeted: ‘The UK didn’t get “nul points” in the Eurovision Song Contest because of some sinister revenge for Brexit.
‘We got “nul points” because we had a crap song, performed by a crap singer who gave a crap performance. End.’
James may have received nil points at the contest which took place live from Rotterdam, Holland, but he deserves a prize for his perfect clap back.
Referring Piers notorious strop when he stormed off Good Morning Britain after being called out over his ongoing attacks against Meghan Markle, James wrote: ‘Hey Piers sorry you didn’t like the song, at least I didn’t storm out.’
Piers responded: ‘Might have spared us all a lot of pain if you had….’
James kept quiet following the Eurovision result on Saturday until he finally made a statement on Monday afternoon on social media, posting: ‘‘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.
‘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.’
He went on: ‘Thank you to all the amazing dedicated fans who have supported me through the whole thing, made it all worth it. Because at the end of the day they are the people who you do this all for.
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.’
