Following a terrible performance at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, when she placed second to last, Mae Muller returned to Twitter on Sunday.
The 25-year-old singer from London, who sang for the UK on Saturday night’s competition, thanked her supporters on social media.
She wrote: “I know I joke a lot but we really put our all into the last few months, not the result we hoped for but so proud of everyone & what we achieved on this journey. Congrats to all the countries, I’ll never forget this journey and I love you all.”

The artist sang her song I Wrote A Song and came in second-to-last place in the competition, which was hosted in Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena in support of war-torn Ukraine.
Germany just overcame the star, who scored 24, by 18 points.
After Sam Ryder of the UK’s outstanding performance in the competition last year, the outcome felt more disappointing to the audience.
The singer of Space Man finished in second place, losing out on first place to Ukraine, the victors from the previous year.
Fans quickly came together to support Mae in spite of their disappointment.
TV presenter Rylan Clark wrote: “We love you so much and we couldn’t be prouder of you.’
One fan wrote: “You were amazing tonight,’ while another added: ‘Ur our winner always.”
A fourth tweeted: “so proud of you, you did so well.”
Holly Mae Muller, a British singer and songwriter, was born on August 26, 1997.
After collaborating with American rapper Polo G and Swedish music group Neiked on the single “Better Days” in 2021, which went on to chart in the top 40 in both the UK and the US, she first gained widespread attention.
She represented the UK at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool with the song “I Wrote a Song,” which made its top 40 debut on the UK Singles Chart for the first time in more than ten years.
