Engelbert Humperdinck has said he did his best for the UK, after scraping into last-but-one place at the Eurovision Song Contest.
He opened the show in Baku, Azerbaijan, with ballad Love Will Set You Free, but seemed to have been forgotten by the time voting started, 25 songs later.
Not even a lucky necklace given to him by Elvis Presley could help the veteran crooner, who scored points from only Belgium, Estonia, Latvia and Ireland and ended up languishing at the bottom of the leader board.
The singer, nicknamed The Hump, scored a total of 12 - ending up just one position above Norway, famous for gaining "nul points" in the annual competition.
Speaking afterwards Humperdinck congratulated the winner, Swedish singer Loreen, with dance track Euphoria.
"I've had many highs in my career and Eurovision has been a wonderful experience," he said.
"I want to thank everybody, especially my fans around the world for their words of support. I did the best for my country, the rest was out of my hands."
Loreen had been the bookies' favourite and romped home with a landmark victory, scoring 372 points. Speaking after the win, she said: "I want to say that I love you so much. Thank you for believing in me."
