A report on Irish Mirror website that was scheduled for publication later tonight was accidentally leaked a day early apparently suggests he's signed up: https://www.escxtra.com/2019/01/05/niall-ho...red-eurovision/

Just rumours at this point of course but what do we think? I think if Niall's got the right song he stands a good chance. It wouldn't surprise me given the live album and show he did for RTÉ last year with their orchestra.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I imagine he'd do similarly to Ryan last year with a similar track. However, if he could pull out a 'Slow Hands' 2.0, surely a winning contender? ohmy.gif

Plus, I'd love this to be true just coz the hype surrounding his name doing it, would hopefully get some bigger names to do it for us next year etc..

I'd prefer Una but Niall would actually be great and potentially a real success for Ireland! Can they PLEASE just give him something with a bit of life, not some terrible acoustic ballad, that kind of thing has been done to death.

Really? Wow I'm very surprised if so. He's done relatively ok with his album, had a few hits in various countries, album sold ok in the UK going gold and really well it seems in Ireland with 2x platinum. He also went to #1 in the USA, Canada and Ireland... I wouldn't have thought he needed to do this just yet?

I feel like Niall is FAR TOO BIG to do Eurovision.

It's not as if his last album bombed and I'm sure he would still have success with a follow up album and still manage to generate radio support. I think if Niall done Eurovision he would be guaranteed a top three especially in the public votes where 1D fans will vote like crazy.

Una needs It more tho.

I would think the same. Flicker has done very well and exceeded expectations.
Maybe if his second album doesn't do well he would be better doing it then.
That said, if he entered and won it he could gain from it.

Not in the UK we don't... Otherwise U2 would represent Ireland and someone like Take That, Little Mix or Rita Ora would be representing the UK... We send new artists and X Factor losers. Our highest profile has been Blue and even they had been away for a few years.

I wouldn't say that's necessarily true - I mean, Sweden would never be able to send Robyn or Zara to Eurovision at the moment, since both have careers outside of it. At this point some people make their careers via Eurovision (ABBA) and some have their careers firmly IN Eurovision (Carola) and then you have the crowd who desperately needs Eurovision because of career failure (insert a lot of crap UK sends here). At this moment, Niall doesn't fit in any of those three categories.
