Eurosong: “Only Love Survives” Gets the Hollywood Stamp of Approval

Ryan Eurosong

Ryan Dolan must be pinching himself now to have just received the below message of support from none other than Hollywood actress Thandie Newton. The star of  hit movies “Crash, Mission Impossible II and The Pursuit of Happiness”  has just sent Ryan and mentor Stuart O’Connor the below message asking people to vote for Ryan’s song “Only Love Survives” which will be song number 4 tonight in the Eurosong Final on the Late Late Show.

Ryan is pinching himself as Thandie is one of his Movie Idols – and a good choice too Ryan. 

Now if I said to our Irish Readers “Tallafornia” we all now exactly what that means and we start singing “Everybody Get Down”, but for our thousands of International Readers “Tallafornia” is the Irish equivalent to MTV’s Jersey Shore, filled with lots of Bronzed and Beautiful people (they must have forgotten to ask me to join!) – well Dave and Kelly have just given their support to Ryan too with their sign of “Love”

However it is time for Ryan to get back to rehearsals and here he is with the team at hair and makeup. Looking good guys.

There seems to be a lot of love for Ryan and all the Eurosong artists tonight. Ryan will be performing 4th with the song “Only Love Survives” on the Late Late Show on RTE 1.

  1. Well done Ryan. A good solid performance on the terrible stage that is The Late Late Show. (Why does RTE insist on staging the Eurosong in this format? It is appalling and does no favours to the performers and please ditch the ‘over gushing panel’ who don’t seem to have one iota on how to critique, everything was great and their audacity in saying we’re going to win was sickening) That said, with a bit of polish and better staging, this number has the potential to do well. Afterall they did wonders with Jedward. One thing though, sort out the dismal backing singers, they were atrocious.
