Eurovision star Sam Ryder has received lavish praise for his stunning performance at the Jubilee concert, with many comparing him to the legendary Freddie Mercury.

The musician became a legend overnight as he clinched the UK’s best Eurovision performance in years with his track Space Man, topping the leaderboard with the jury votes.

While he fell at the final hurdle to the Kalush Orchestra, with the public throwing their support behind Ukraine, Sam was treated to a hero’s welcome upon his return to the UK with many considering him to be their winner.

Now Sam has proven yet again that he is a monster on the stage, as he gave an incredible performance of his Eurovision track at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert.

Airing on BBC One, Sam’s performance blew audiences away, with fans taking to social media to share their thoughts – and many stating he put on a show the late Queen frontman would have been proud of.

‘Sam Ryder is putting some of these big acts to shame,’ one person wrote. ‘He’s got some voice on him and a natural performer to boot. Getting Freddie Mercury vibes there.’

Another described Sam as ‘outstanding’ and asked: ‘Anyone else getting Freddie Mercury?’

One said they would ‘love to hear Sam Ryder sing some Queen songs’, adding Sam sounds ‘just like Freddie Mercury himself. What a talent.’

‘I’ve got goosebumps, he sounds like Freddie Mercury,’ one said, while another described him as ‘the new Freddie Mercury.’

One particularly delighted fan even called for Sam to be knighted, writing: ‘Knight him and knight him now!!’











The three-hour extravaganza has seen performances from Sam along with other major names including Rod Stewart and George Ezra.

Some of the West End’s most iconic musicals also put on a show, with performances from the cast of Hamilton, Six, and The Lion King.

There have been opera renditions, raps, commentary and comedy, as 22,000 people cram into the grounds of Buckingham Palace and the Mall to celebrate 70 years since Queen Elizabeth II took the throne.

One particular highlight saw the Queen team up with no other than Paddington Bear – and there’s plenty more yet to come.

There will be a pre-recorded performance from Sir Elton John, while stars including Sir David Attenborough, Emma Raducanu, David Beckham, Stephen Fry, Dame Julie Andrews, The Royal Ballet, and Ellie Simmonds will also be appearing.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert is airing on BBC One and will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
