Eurovision and the BBC programme Strictly Come Dancing have things in common. They both have a large fan base, and are popular TV viewing. However, there are times when we see our favourite contest spill over into Strictly Come Dancing, either through a Eurovision song being used in dances performed in the contest, either in group dances or the contesting couples , or something else like a backing track when another part of the contest is being discussed. However , this weekend , the Strictly producers at the British broadcaster the BBC pulled off somewhat a coup , when the UK 2022 singer and runner up in last year’s contest in Turin, Italy ,Sam Ryder made appearances in the Blackpool edition of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing competition . On Saturday he appeared to announce the rules and regulations of the show and voting and on Sunday, he opened the Strictly Come Dancing Results show with a stunning cover version of the song “You’re the Voice” by John Farnham , which was a hit in the late 1980’s .He was joined by the Strictly Professional dancers.
He then followed this up with a new song “All the way over in the ballroom” during the interval act prior to the two couples who came in the bottom two performing their dance -offs to stay in the competition, accompanied by two professional dancers performing a dance to the song .
At the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Sam Ryder brought the United Kingdom second place in the contest , winning the Jury vote in the process, with the song “Spaceman”
