#IRELAND: Lesley Roy Returns For 2021

Earlier today, RTE have announced that Lesley Roy will be returning for another go at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, in Rotterdam. Lesley Roy also announced the news via her Instagram account.

Following the announcement, Lesley Roy had the following to say:

“It was a real shame we didn’t get to showcase Story of My Life on the Eurovision stage, but had the show not been cancelled this new song would never have emerged. I’ve been working on new material 24/7 and this song was clearly the strongest out of all of the demos. I believe that it is even bigger than Story of My Life, and will reach an even wider audience. I am just so excited to finally get my shot on the Eurovision stage after months and months of work and can’t wait to reveal more information about our song in the New Year.”

Michael Kealy, the Irish Head of Delegation, had the following to say:

“We were all very excited about bringing Lesley and Story of My Life to Rotterdam this year so it was a real shame that it wasn’t to be. However, Lesley’s new song is every bit as catchy as the last one and I can’t wait for her to perform it in Rotterdam next May to the biggest live music audience on the planet.”
