Sam Ryder has been joined on stage at the Eurovision Song Contest by Queen drummer Roger Taylor.
This year’s instalment of the contest took place in Liverpool, following the ongoing political conflict taking place in Ukraine. Ukraine won the competition last year, with Ryder coming in second place.
Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra opened this year’s Eurovision song contest with an emotive rendition of their 2022 winning song, ‘Stefania’.
The opening also saw the band joined by musicians and famous figures from afar. It cut to clips featuring Ryder playing guitar on the song from on top of Liverpool’s Liver Building.
Other contributions via video included ones from Joss Stone, Miss Banks, Andrew Lloyd Webber and the Princess of Wales, who played piano on the song.
Ryder later returned to the stage to perform his latest single ‘Mountain’ and it featured Taylor on drums.
Ryder last joined Queen on stage for a rendition of ‘Somebody To Love’ at the Foo Fighter’s Taylor Hawkins tribute concert.
