Olly Alexander will no longer be called Years and Years

The 33-year-old singer - who rose to fame as the frontman of the 'King' hitmakers alongside Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Türkmen - had continued using the name as a solo artist with 2022 release 'Night Call', but now he has confirmed he will be performing under this own name in the future.

Taking to the stage at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend on Sunday (26.05.24), he told the crowd at Luton's Stockwood Park: “Listen, listen, I don’t know have to tell you how good it feels to be back in the UK, doing a show.

"Do you know what this is my first ever show as Olly Alexander? I used to be in Years and Years, I used to be Years and Years and now I’m just me.”

The show also marked Olly's first show since he finished 18th in the 'Eurovision Song Contest' earlier this month with an infamous 'nil points' in the public vote.

He still performed his entry song 'Dizzy' at the festival, and took the opportunity to poke fun at his disappointing tally.

He quipped: "And now for the song that was only 17 places away from winning the Eurovision Song Contest, it’s ‘Dizzy.' "

Despite his disappointing result at 'Eurovision', the actor and singer jokingly described his low score as "iconic" while tahnking fans for their support.

He wrote on Instagram: "Honestly I don’t know where to even begin with this whole experience, I’m going to be processing things for a long time!

“For now I just want to say I am so proud of the performance and my team, everybody absolutely smashed it and gave it their all to bring the vision to life!!

"I met so many talented wonderful people on and off the stage and I’m really thankful we were able to support each other throughout...

“Though we may have received NIL Points from the voting public – which I shall be claiming as iconic! – I’ve also seen a lot of love and I’m truly grateful, thank you.”
