Apparently Ryan Dolan and Jedward are rumoured to be attempting to return as well according to ESC Xtra, but I doubt Jedward would go again surely?

It seems they've scrapped the mentors thing now for a proper public selection process. 'Heartbeat' was fabulous but it just didn't work on stage as well as it should have done due to them throwing everything they could at it it seemed!

Most 'big names' that were rumoured to take part have denied it (and wouldn't you). REALLY hoping this isn't just another Late Late 'special' because what's the point? Like they still don't get that it's no longer 1996 and faux-Celtic imagery/sound just doesn't work anymore.

I know Melanie McCabe has been rumoured for 2 or 3 years now (and was rumoured to be in the 2013 final but was then replaced), but she'd be perfect! wub.gif

'Only Teardrops' was a catchy pop song that happened to have a couple of folky notes; DR hardly marketed it as Celtic and it hardly won because of the tin whistle in the chorus. RTÉ seem to think you need to cash-in on the whole Celtic thing and have stone-age/bronze-age symbolism thrown around everywhere. It's just so tacky and it hasn't worked for years so I don't know why they seem to think it does?

She seems NICE but I wouldn't be overly fussed. It would all depend on the song though!

Mary has been rejected! She said the following:

QUOTE
“I’m gutted because it’s a fabulous song written by Karl Broderick, who is one of the top composers in the country. I’m more disappointed for Karl, but I’m a huge Eurovision fan and there’s no denying I would have loved the chance to win it for Ireland again. I felt Karl’s song was very strong and inspiring, but it hasn’t been chosen and I’m gobsmacked.”

Mary goes on to say that RTE may have snubbed her because they are looking ‘for somebody younger, or a slimmer version of Mary Byrne’.

Current rumours include Ryan O'Shaughnessy and HomeTown although I think the latter is quite unlikely as I believe they are doing very well in Ireland at the moment.

There is STILL no word about this over here at all. Usually we'd at least know something by now but we don't even know if it'll be a standalone NF or just the typical cheap Late Late special. Hoping it's a full-on NF like 2008 (R.I.P Leona Daly - we hardly knew ya!!!) because that was relatively exciting.

It's a very weird silence from Ireland, especially considering their national finals are usually this time next month. Maybe they will surprise us all with a fabulous internal selection of Janet Devlin! wub.gif

Well after last year, a Late Late Show national final will be unmissable! laugh.gif I did think they were going to do a proper NF this year though.

Details about the five finalists here: http://rte.ie/ten/news/2015/0209/678748-rt...-2015-hopefuls/

Seems one is an all Swedish entry with a Swedish singer and a Swedish song!

Amazing, would give Ireland a great chance of a top 10! But I can't see Ireland voting for someone with no Irish connection whatsoever sad.gif Apparently she was the original vocalist of 'Kom' before it was given to Timoteij.

Opening odds from Paddy Power:

7/4 Kat Mahon
2/1 Nikki Kavanagh
3/1 Molly Sterling
5/1 Erika Selin
12/1 Alex Saint

I will give the others a quick listen now.

Really liking Nikki's song too, could be very good if she can pull those vocals off live without coming across shouty. Molly and Kat are both nice but nothing incredible and Alex Saint's rap is of course the worst.

Considering I doubt Erika stands a chance due to her nationality, I hope Nikki wins!

Nikki is now favourite, but Erika has moved up to second in the odds. Either one of those two I'd be very happy with!

Erika has also released her music video:
