News on the artist & song is coming very soon, but this tweet from a theatre production group is getting people very excited..



Ireland won the last Dutch hosted contest - do they have their heads in the game this time?

Ok this isnít the worst. Itís a tad dated but I think it could, with the right staging, be a bit of a bop.

It is a bit ďEt CeteraĒ and 2010 era Katy Perry kinda vibes so agree with a bit dated, but I love that kind of music so Iím well on board!

I really like it, it's very late 00s but that's an undeniable chorus.

I reckon an easy finalist for Ireland and a mid-table finish in the final, as this type of power pop isn't usually a recipe for a major Eurovision smash.

It's definitely dated but in the best way, I mean ofc 2010 Katy Perry kind of vibes is one of the best vibes you can pull off! I'm not sure it will do hugely well though as this kind of thing rarely does, but it's gonna be one of my faves of the year either way. The nostalgia will probably see it as a fan fave, I hope it works in the contest too, it will qualify anyway.

I'm kinda getting a bit into Eurovision again so I listened to this straight away a few times. My friend was at my place and he said he thought I was listening to P!nk haha. It's a very catchy song - I can't see myself being drawn back into it much but I guess most songs in ESC only really need to work in the moment (I forget about most of them later kink.gif). I do have a few that I've stuck with over the years tho.

My friend said something like it's generic but at least it's sort of good, rather than generic and crap which Ireland has often been tongue.gif

Thatís a name I havenít heard in a while!

Itís very 2009, I think this hits me a lot more because it just gives me 8th grade me feels. Definitely one of the best things Ireland has put out in a while.

Ok - so there's room for improvement, to say the least. When she does belt it out, I think she does have the necessary power.

She doesn't sound physically fit to sing the song.

I'm now loving this and I'm not even sorry.

Her LLS performance was PATCHY to say the least but she can hit the notes so it just needs lots of practice. Here's hoping the staging isn't a hot mess.

That live performance blink.gif Also it sounds like a 2002 song rejected by Avril Lavigne for a b side - not here for Ireland this year and I usually LOVE their entries.

Well from what I remember of when Ireland used to have The Late Late Show as it's National Final, basically everything sounds bad on that show because the acoustics are terrible. So there's reason to believe that the actual final product in May will be a glow up from that.

The song is very Katy Perry of 10 years.
