After 7 long years, Eurosong is back to select Ireland's entry to Eurovision 2022. Here's what to expect from The Late Late Show Eurosong 2022 Special!
Ireland will return to a national selection for the first time since 2015, and as with previous years the selection will take the form of a special Eurovision edition of the popular long running, live entertainment show — ‘The Late Late Show‘.
Watch The Late Late Show Eurosong 2022 Special on Friday 4th February at 21:35 (GMT)/22:35 (CET) on RTÉ One in Ireland and Northern Ireland, and internationally on the RTÉ Player.
The following running order has been revealed:
- Song 1: One Night, One Kiss, One Promise — Patrick O’Sullivan
- Song 2: Ashes of Yesterday — Janet Grogan
- Song 3: Real Love — Brendan Murray
- Song 4: Yeah We’re Gonna Get Out Of It — Miles Graham
- Song 5: I’m Loving Me — Rachel Goode
- Song 6: That’s Rich — Brooke
It has also been revealed that there will be a special performance of Riverdance on the night. Riverdance was the interval act at the 1995 Eurovision in Dublin, and subsequently proceeded to become an international sensation that is still touring the world today.
Long time Eurovision commentator for RTÉ, Marty Whelan, will also be on hand to interact with the contestants in the green room.
The voting sequence will see the results come in from a public televote, a national jury in the studio and an international jury! This will be the first time that Ireland has used an international jury as part of it’s selection.
