Irish International Rugby Star Simon Zebo has just come out in support of one of this year’s Eurosong Finalists. In a tweet yesterday Simon said that he was supporting Zoe to win Eursong with her song “Fire”

It seems that Zoe has captured the imagination of many Irish people recently and she is gaining support on the other acts in the competition. Zoe will perform the song “Fire” written by Lauren White, Willie Weeks and Niall Mooney (who is also Zoe’s Mentor). Remember that Zoe will be live on Radio International tonight – check out our article from yesterday for the full details.

On a further note that if you type into YouTube “Eurovision 2013” – the top 3 results are actually Zoe’s song! Is that a good sign for success across Europe?

  1. The YouTube search results are localised, what you see in Ireland is not what people in other countries see.
    I’m in the Middle East and for the search ‘eurovision 2013’ I’m seeing one result for Zoe, at number 7 (still not bad).
