Ireland is the most-winningest ESC participant ever. So there. It's just that it's such a while ago. And they sure didn't make things better for themselves last year. >:-( What a piece of shit. Sorry, Paz, no offense intended. ;-) But seriously. One should at least pretend that one is making an effort.This year's entry - SO much better. Beyond compare. A real song! With humans on stage! Yes, it's a sad day when that last bit needs to be mentioned as an improvement. >:-( But this song is a cute and charming pop song performed by a group of cute and charming girls ... probably in outfits that will go down well with the younger section of the audience down East. The live performance isn't that good, so fingers should be crossed ... it may come across as charming, but, well, no guarantees. The song itself isn't quite a winner, but it's a good entry - catchy, upbeat, with both charm and personality.
I'm glad to see Ireland back on track. :-)
This is Sinead Mulvy and her (??) band Black Daisy performing Et Cetera by a whole bunch of people (click here for the list :-) who will be competing for Ireland on May 14th. Unfortunately in a slot that is beyond shitty; #2. Alas. But good luck. :-)
