We have been closely following Eurovision’s Brian Kennedy, as he competed in the song contest “The Hit” on RTE.

Brian Kennedy was competing against Ryan O’Shaughnessy in the weekly charts for a place in the Grand Final of the show.

Brian Kennedy was outside of the Top 100 downloads as of last night but the official Irish Charts have just been released and when the text song downloads were added in, Brian Kennedy entered the Irish charts at #15 with the song “Try”.

So did Ryan O’Shaughnessy beat Brian’s chart position? He most certainly did. Ryan stormed into the charts at #3 with the song “Who Do You Love”.

So that means that Brian is eliminated from the contest and will not be in the final where the RTE concert orchestra will accompany the artists in the O2 arena in Dublin. It is a shame as we really liked “Try” – Hopefully it will make it onto Brian’s new album in the future.

Remember that tonight we have Johnny Logan competing in the show and we are SO SO EXCITED!!

The show will be on RTE 1 at 21:35 GMT and you can also watch on-line at the following link

Then the show will be available on the RTE Player – we will publish the link when the show is available tomorrow.

Can Johnny Logan pick a good song and make the final? Fingers crossed for him!
