Wow! Best Eurovision in years I won! lol England VS Ukraine (My Grandads homeland) but no it was so good & deserved and I loved Mika too Love #Eurovision #Mika
wow the uk might win... as an israeli i can relate to the feeling of "we'll never win euorvision" 2018 felt EUPHORIC bc of it! so I'll understand british fans if the uk wins. I will be really happy for them Love #Eurovision #ESC2022
I was too inebriated last year to watch Eurovision, but tonight I'm focused. No compassion from me, if Ukraine get the sympathy vote and win, it I'll be raging. Best of luck to @SamRyderMusic, not a massive fan of the song but he has a great voice and perfect for #Eurovision
Congratulations @SamRyderMusic United Kingdom proper quality to see us on the right side at the dizzy heights of 2nd!! Incredible- lovely to see my vocal coach and beautiful friend @anniwilliamsing by his side too you're amazing Flowers #Eurovision2022
2nd place. Such a fantastic result. Ukraine vote as expected and massive support to them but congratulations UK and Sam Ryder for all your hard work. Amazing result for our guys winning jury vote and getting good pts in the public vote. #Eurovision2022
AMAZING! 2nd place behind only Ukraine, our best result in 24 years, top of the jury vote and most points for the #UK ever Sam Ryder is a #Eurovision hero! Massive congratulations to everyone involved with the BBC's effort, it - wonderful to finally feel some positivity!
Wow....just managed to catch the #fantastic Sam Ryder #uksong #EUROVISION What an incredible performance and literally the BEST song to come out of the UK for donkeys! #teamSPACEMAN Could this number 22 be a good sign? #number22 to perform at 2200
Yey! for Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra and their superb win... and for @SamRyderMusic for being thoroughly decent and knowing sometimes not winning is really OK Love Ukraine Love Ukraine Love Ukraine #Eurovision2022
Wow @SamRyderMusic was so good. Such a great performance but I'm never confident of points because of the politics. Maybe if Hugh Grant was from Love Actually PM we might at a a chance #Eurovision
Superb result for Ukraine tonight. Great performance. Slava Ukraini Utterly amazing result for United Kingdom , Sam did us proud. Norway Moldova you won my #Eurovision2022 #eurovision

That was so amazing!! Huge congratulations to Ukraine, but I'm so so happy we came second!!!! We actually came SECOND!!! That's so awesome!!! Huge congratulations to Sam you did amazing and did us proud!!! #Eurovision
Sam Ryder did an amazing job this year. To finish 2nd after the UK got 0 points last year is incredible. Spaceman was such an amazing song. Again Ukraine deserved the win 100%. Massive congratulations to Ukraine. Ukraine #Eurovision2022
So basically, if it wasn't for everything going on in Ukraine, we would have won. Brilliant from Sam Ryder, but huge respect and love to Ukraine. They deserve something to celebrate. #Eurovision
Am I the only one that is happy that the UK didn't win #Eurovision2022? Cause if they won, it is all that would be talked about for months and the British would be parading about like they are the best and we wouldn't hear the end of it lol Great song and singer. Shite countryLOL
That is a fantastic result! @SamRyderMusic congratulations on an amazing night! Big congratulations to u##Ukraine for their win too! Haven't been this involved in the scoring for about 10 years! #Eurovision2022 @Eurovision
Happy for Ukraine. Proud Nation. Love The United Kingdom came so close! Great song! Deserved winners themselves! Best song from the UK in a very long time! #Eurovision2022
I am so happy for my Spanish and British friends. I'll be so happy if any of them wins #Eurovision and even happier for my friends Love
It will be incredible & sooooooo deserved if we win it but we all know that the European public don't like us! No matter what happens @SamRyderMusic you've done brilliantly!!!!!! #Eurovision #UK
I just want to say this. If you see this Sam, I am so bloody proud of you mate, to finish 2nd is our best ever result since 1998. Also, I want to congratulate Ukraine on their win. We can leave with our heads head high, I hope we get to host next year. Thank you. #eurovision
My fav songs: #Eurovision 1. United Kingdom 2. Australia (I would be surprised if #Australia wins though because it's not based in EUR). The following countries have a good chance to win.Ukraine might win with the protest votes, it is not my fav song but had a good energy. Norway Italy S
#Eurovision @SamRyderMusic You've done us so proud. You are a winner. Love (I think we all knew Ukraine was going to win the public vote)

Loved tonight!!! #Eurovision what an amazing time! So our boy @SamRyderMusic didn't win, and the Ukraine entry clearly the winner! But we're no longer nil points! The cycle has been broken!! Let's hope forever!!! Xxx
Credible effort from UK United Kingdom to come second but Ukraine win the #Eurovision and at least we weren't a laughing stock this year like most recent contests. We can certainly be proud of @SamRyderMusic for such a great performance. At least Europe showed solidarity with Ukraine.
Thank you @SamRyderMusic for an absolutely amazing performance and representation! Beyond proud, you were absolutely incredible. United Kingdom #Eurovision2022 #eurovision
I still don't think it's brilliant but it's the best entry we've had in years. Good luck Sam. #uk #Eurovision
We equalled the wonderful @TheImaani's achievement tonight. That is great company to keep. Congrats @SamRyderMusic you've done brilliantly #Eurovision2022
Before the grand final of #Eurovision, three awards as given out in the name of Marcel Bezencon, creator of the contest. The UK has won the Press Award, which is voted on by the accredited members of the media, for SPACE MAN. The first time a Bezencon Award has gone to a UK act.
Wow.I was really hoping that #GBR would win #Eurovision however I'm happy for #Ukraine
An ideal result, anyone other than Ukraine winning would have been wrong. What a lovely guy @SamRyderMusic seems to be, great song and amazing attitude. Still tho will always be the year I had to find these emojis #Eurovision2022
Sam Ryder is something special. Probably won't win ( the norm) but he has a future! I want that blingy outfit too! Good luck Sam! #Eurovision United Kingdom
