Throughout the years, Ireland has become the leading country in the Eurovision Song Contest winning it on a record of seven occasions, the last of which came back in 1996 as Eimear Quinn and her entry 'The Voice' stormed to victory. The results have been testing the great nation but then again last year, they managed to find the right formula by sending the Jedward twins to tackle the competition with their song 'Lipstick', gaining international exposure and finishing in eight place, even higher than the British representatives, Blue. The broadcaster has decided to keep the format similar to that of last year due to the success achieved, hoping that it will be yet another positive year.

The official acts for the Irish Eurosong which will be held through the 'Late Late Show' on RTE ONE are set to be revealed through an official press released in the next couple of days considering that the names are coming out quite quickly and we can confirm a total of four acts, all of whom are competing to become the next Irish representative at the Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Baku, Azerbaijan. The very first performers to confirm their participation were none other than Jedward who would like to do better than last year. They are the choice of none other than former Eurovision Song Contest winner; Linda Martin. Joining them and confirming the news officially is former representative Donna McCaul who is set to be mentored by Bill Hughes. The next announcement was actually that of the mentored act by Julian Benson. He has decided to call on a classical duet featuring Una Gibney and David Shannon, the latter of which has already tried to represent the United Kingdom in 1998. The final act which has just been confirmed not too long ago is that of Celtic performer; Maria McCool who is set to be mentored by former B*Witched performer; Edele having decided not to compete as part of the Barbarellas.
