Sam Ryder has struck up an unlikely friendship with Hollywood star Jamie Lee Curtis.
The UK’s 2022 ‘Eurovision’ finalist has revealed the ‘Halloween’ star, 63, has been an enormous supporter of his TikTok covers and he is hoping the pair can meet as much as bond additional over music.
He informed the Daily Star: “Jamie Lee Curtis has been so encouraging since day one, she is so lovely.
“She is an absolute legend; I hope to meet her one day and talk about music. She loves music and she is such an interesting woman.”
The TikTok star – who will take to the stage to carry out ‘Space Man’ on the PalaOlimpico in Turin, Italy on Saturday evening (14.05.22) – admitted it is “surreal” having A-Lister followers.
He added: “At the beginning it was surreal, the fact that she’s a fan of me will always be surreal.
“But I remind myself that everyone is just a person. We’re all going to be interested in different artists, just because someone is super well-known.”
The musician has a number of well-known followers, together with Justin Bieber, Sia and Alicia Keys, and he’d like to collaborate with them.
The 32-year-old singer – who shot to fame in lockdown on social media app TikTok – mentioned when requested who he’d prefer to duet with: “Sia. She would be amazing. Not only is she incredible as a singer, musician, writer and person. But she was the first person to root for me on social media in lockdown. Justin Bieber sent my video to her, which is a bonkers sentence and she posted it on her Instagram page with a really kind, encouraging message underneath it and it would be really nice to complete the circle and meet with her, work with her. That would be a dream come true!”
He informed BANG Showbiz and different shops: “Alicia Keys is a legend, one of my absolute favourites. So I guess I’m spoilt for choice – they are the two best female singers there!”
‘Eurovision’ music was co-written by pop megastar Ed Sheeran and his common collaborator Amy Wadge in a bid to show across the UK’s long-standing repute for making it to the latter finish of the leaderboard.
‘The Eurovision Song Contest’ is about to air from 8pm on Saturday 14 May on BBC One, with Mika, Alessandro Cattelan, Laura Pausini co-hosting. Graham Norton will as soon as once more present commentary within the UK.
