  • Nikki Kavanagh – Memories

‘I’m a huge Eurovision fan; I’ve been there before and would love more than anything to go back as lead vocalist representing our country. As for our song, its current, it’s edgy and I think it will help us stand out against the rest of Europe.’

  • Kat Mohan – Anybody Got A Shoulder

‘Charlie McGettigan approached me to do vocals and I jumped at the opportunity to work with him. I am over the moon that it’s been selected as one of the final five songs and I’m now eager to get up a perform it!’

  • Alex Saint & The MJs – She’s So Fine

‘The Eurovision is a brilliant contest and this song is a real winner. I feel this is the year of the rap!’

  • Erika Selin – Break Me Up

‘I am very proud to be a part of Eurosong 2015 since Ireland is one of the absolute top nations in the Eurovision Song Contest with a tremendous track record, always producing great songs.’

  • Molly Sterling – Playing With Numbers

‘As a performing artist it’s rare to get the opportunity to represent your country. To be selected to do so would be an honour and a great responsibility that I would proudly embrace.’

 

Here is some more information on the 5 artists in the Irish Eurosong National Final

Michael Kealy, Executive Producer Eurovision and Head of the Irish Delegation said:

‘This year we’ve gone back to basics. We did a call out to songwriters in October and got over 300 entries. The five that have been shortlisted represent a range of genres and styles. Eurovision is more than just a big entertaining extravaganza; it offers an exciting opportunity to up-and-coming performers to be seen and heard by millions.’

 

So we will have rap to dance to ballads. Sounds interesting!
