Piers Morgan called James Newman’s Eurovision song ‘crap’ and his comeback hit all the right notes
He didn’t get many points – okay, so he didn’t get any points – but the love for the UK’s Eurovision entrant James Newman just keeps building.
First of all there was how the Embers singer dealt with the ‘nul points’ on the night, followed by the pitch-perfect statement he put out on Twitter yesterday.
Then – and best of all – there was how he dealt with Piers Morgan after the former Good Morning Britain man offered up a typically nuanced take on his Eurovision performance.
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. pic.twitter.com/jN875OQrWp

And Newman’s response hit all the right notes.
Hey Piers sorry you didn’t like the song, at least I didn’t storm out! #Eurovision I
