It goes down in history for all the wrong reasons like the UK’s worst defeat in years at Eurovision.
The UK failed to score a single point from the jury and voting public in the highly anticipated singing competition this weekend.
Our entry James, who is the brother of famous singer John Newman, failed to impress a single person with his rendition of his song Embers.
Some have suggested it was ‘revenge’ for Brexit, but the outspoken presenter had no qualms about saying he didn’t think that was why the UK had done so poorly.
Piers launched an extraordinary attack on the singer after the British flop.
In a scathing tweet, he lambasted the “shit song”, “shit singer” and “shit performance” at the dazzling party held at Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, Holland.
He wrote: “The UK did not get ‘zero points’ in the Eurovision Song Contest because of a grim revenge on Brexit.
“We got ‘zero points’ because we had a crappy song, performed by a crappy singer who gave a crappy performance.
The UK has fallen to the bottom of the leader board with 3,500 fans watching the site.
Italy took home the winning trophy as Maneskin scored 524 points on the night.
Next year will be organized in Italy in accordance with the tradition of the Eurovision Song Contest.
France took second place and Switzerland was right behind them, third.

Ahead of the competition, James urged the UK to further support its entries in the Eurovision Song Contest.
He told Metro: “I was talking to someone from Europe and they were saying that UK is a really big country in the competition and they are happy that we are here and that we are making an effort and I think that that’s all we can do.
“In Sweden people really care and we have to do the same. Today Clara Aamfo performed my song on Radio One and Scott Mills – people hear it, speak and support the song in the UK like they do in other countries.
“We can do well if we make the effort. People need to be more positive – come on guys, it’s not like we’re terrible – we’re really good at music! “
