Ireland's Eurosong hopefuls (and Tubridy) take our fiendish Eurovision quiz

Will there be euphoria? Or only teardrops?

WHAT’S ANOTHER YEAR? That’s the question we’ll all be asking this evening as five Eurovision hopefuls take to the stage on The Late Late Show tonight.

The Irish public must decide who is fit to fly the flag for our fair island so we decided to make things that bit easier by putting the contestants through their paces with our fiendish quick fire Eurovision quiz.

They have NO idea what lies ahead. RTÉ RTÉ

Three questions stand between our contestants and Eurosong glory: Only one can claim victory and take the horse to Denmark.

Here’s what we wanted to know:

1. How many times has Ireland won the Eurovision?

2. What song was Johnny Logan singing when he wore THIS all-important white suit?

3. Complete the line from this Eurovision song: “I was yours and you were mine, but that was once upon a time…”

Who flew on the wings of love and who was running scared? It’s time to find out.

First up is Kasey Smith. She’ll be singing Heartbeat with Can-linn this evening, but can she and her mentor Hazel Kaneswaran get all the right answers?

The next contestant finally facing their Waterloo is Laura O’Neill. Aslan’s own Billy McGuinness thinks she can go all the way with You Won’t Remember Me.

Will she be able to remember enough about Eurovision?

Andrew Mann is belting out Be Mine on behalf of his mentor, 2fm’s Cormac Battle, hoping to show the Irish viewers that all kinds of everything can happen when you send a decent rock song.

Can he hold us now?

X Factor favourite Eoghan Quigg‘s hoping to bring The Movie Song to Copenhagen. He’s rather looking forward to seeing old X Factor friend Ruth Lorenzo – who’ll be representing Spain -if he gets through.

Is he in love with a fairytale, even though it hurts?

Our last contestant is Patricia Roe, who was picked to sing her own song Don’t Hold On by her sister, Valerie. Patricia’s a Eurovision veteran having sung in the competition for Malta previously.

Will she look at our questions and get to thinking why me?

So, who is sending to Eurovision?


It’s a TIE: Laura O’Neill and Patricia Roe share first place with a solid 3/3.

And what about the main man himself?

Get your lipstick on Ryan, we’ll gladly send you to Copenhagen too.
