    He's awful. We'd be better off sending the terrible twins back from last year.

    We need to think outside the boundaries of the UK and Ireland.

    Send a rock/metal band with an Irish twist. That's the only way we'll win this again.

    But that's the whole point, the organisers don't want us to win it again, that's why thety keep sending such crap to represent us!

    remember those painted up mad lads from the first series i think, the organisers have to send somebody even they think are ridiculous to have a chance of winning :)

    I didn't think you could participate if you were already established as an artist.

    at the risk of being shot...

    /ducks behind bullet-proof glass

    ...Brian Kennedy is a great singer, one of the best traditional singers in the country imho

    Why should we send some crappy rock band? - that isn't what we do. let's send a decent traditional singer, and at least be proud of listening to him...

    I would have agreed with you when it was judge voting (he'd probably win it), but with public voting, you need something mad.
    Dana International....
    Those Zena Warriors from the Ukraine...

    Eh Celine Dion, Abba, etc, etc, etc.......

    Brian Kennedy's not that big. I'm sure a lot of other countries haven't heard of him before.

    Just like we haven't a clue who most of the foreign singers are, but they're prob already massive in their own countries.

    remember its a song contest not a singer contest.

    ABBA, Dion, Clif Richard, etc all have taken part, the rule is that the song cannot have been released before, and can't be released as a single until 2 weeks before the Eurovision contest.

    established... perhaps.... but not really for their music :rolleyes:

    isn't there a difference between traditional and twee


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,305 ✭✭✭✭ jimmycrackcorm


    I got the impression that to win now you need yo have a glitzy show with sexy women. After all Turkey won with a rip off with a chakira song - how that was allowed is beyond me.

    I'd suggest getting Michael Flately in singin my lovely horse..... :D

    But they weren't famous when they sang in Eurovision. It's because of their victories that they're famous.

    He wouldn't want you touching his mickey anyway, he's gay. :p


    Anyway, let's not count our chickens before they hatch. He's a good live performer and if the song is at least decent, we might actually do well for the first time in years.
