Sam Ryder doubts Harry Styles will be "mad" if 'Space Man' beats 'As It Was' to number one this week.
The UK's 'Eurovision' finalist - who came second place to Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra in the annual song contest at the weekend - is neck-and-neck with the former One Direction star in the race for number one in the Official UK Chart.
Harry has managed to maintain the top spot for six weeks now, and the TikToker is sure he won't mind jumping down a place to let 'Space Man' have its moment.
On the prospect of beating Harry on Friday (20.05.22), Sam told OfficialCharts.com:
"It feels amazing, Harry is a legend. I feel like what Harry stands for, as a fan of his and listening to his music, he stands for the same things that 'Eurovision' celebrates; a freedom of expression, of inclusivity. A celebration of music, joy, and togetherness.
"I don't think he'd be that mad if we pipped him to Number 1, I really don't. Harry, sorry if you would be mad, but I'm sure we could make it up to you. You've had your six weeks, that's a good time!"
The former metaller - whose famous fans include Justin Bieber, Alicia Keys and Hollywood legend Jamie Lee Curtis - admitted it would be the icing on the top of a "lovely cake" if he scores a number one.
He said: "Right now, we've been blessed with a lovely cake; but there's no icing on top of it. An Official Number 1 single would make a bit of 'Eurovision' history. A 'Eurovision' track hasn't been Number 1 in the UK for 26 years. Wouldn't that just be a fantastic end chapter to this whole experience? You can make it happen, UK. You've been amazingly supportive through this whole journey. I know you couldn't vote at the final in Turin, but you can show your support now and finish this the way we started. Let's smash it!"
