Welcome to our series of “How should Each Country stage their song at Eurovision 2015”?
While other sites are giving their opinions on the songs from each country, we thought we would take a different approach here at Eurovision Ireland.
You already know what songs you like and what songs you don’t like as much, but the important thing now for broadcasters and artists is ‘How will they stage their song in Vienna’?
We all know that great song can have a stage performance that doesn’t suit the song and dashes the chances of winning. Then other countries just create magic on stage that makes a song jump in the betting odds and voting on the big night – Remember Conchita and The Common Linnets last year. Once the Press saw their stage presentation in Rehearsals they went straight to the top!
So rather than tell you if we like a song or not, or rank it, or give it a score (we’ll save that for Vienna) we will give you our thoughts on how this year’s songs could be presented. We will talk from lighting to fashion to choreography to camera shots.
We want to get your views on it too. What turns a good song into a GREAT song! So first up we will have Italy later on tonight and we will go through all of the songs over the coming weeks until we get to Vienna.

Nice idea – some entries seem to have their staging already sorted (Estonia), some have to think again (Sweden) and there are the odd one or two I am really, really excited to see what they do (Georgia).
Can’t imagine there’ll be any odd shaped pianos or ‘holograms’ this year though…
