The Finalists for ‘The Late Late Show Eurosong Special’ which will select Ireland’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo. There were a few surprises in the finalists. Anyway on to the list:
* Baby, Nothing’s Wrong – Performed by Michael Graham
Music & Lyrics by Michael Graham, Scott Newman & Yann O’Brien
* Does Heaven Need Much More? – Performed by Leanne Moore
Written by Tommy Moran & John Waters
* Fashion Queen – Performed by Monika Ivkic
Written by Marc Paelinck & Mathias Strasser
* It’s For You – Performed by Niamh Kavanagh
Music: Niall Mooney, Marten Eriksson & Jonas Gladnikoff
Lyrics: Lina Eriksson
* River of Silence – Performed by Lee Bradshaw
Music: R. Siegel Lyrics: J. O’Flynn / José Santana
The five finalists will battle it out on 5th of March. The results will be decided by 50% regional juries and 50% televote, much like the Eurovision itself.
Seeing Niamh Kavanagh’s name on the list was a nice surprise. She represented Ireland in the 1993 contest in Milstreet and won with “In Your Eyes”. Michael Graham, or Mickey, as he is more often known, is the one from Boyzone. I look forward to that performance!
Unfortunately I won’t be in the country when this is on, so there will be no commentary from me. Hopefully the songs will be online before the show, then I will pass comment!
