Leinster débtued at the 45th WorldVision, coming 4th. However, the succeeding entries of slut pop and "Wow, she looks older!" weren't so successful... Thank you for a great yet brief stint representing my home region :)

FÁILTE GO CLÁR NÁISIÚNTA DON WV NA LAIGHIN // WELCOME TO LEINSTER'S WV NATIONAL FINAL!

http://oi61.tinypic.com/slpms7.jpg

Welcome to Amhrán 45! Three artists will compete to represent Leinster at WorldVision 45 for the first time ever! Who are the Terrific Three, however? Time to find out!

And no, no Hozier or The Script. Be shocked.


AN CHÉAD GNÍOMH // THE FIRST ACT
http://cdn1.independent.ie/incoming/article30314331.ece/aa86a/ALTERNATES/h342/lisa%20fitzpatrick%20book%20l_32.jpg
HOMETOWN // "Cry For Help" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4y4wRreMPco)

As if you haven't seen enough of Louis Walsh's bands: here's another one! Brendan, Cian, Dean, Dayl, Josh and Ryan make up the pop group Hometown, formed in 2013. They first came to fame in late 2014 with the song "Where I Belong", but will perform their latest single "Cry For Help" in Amhrán 45. *side note* Dean, Josh and Ryan are from Leinster, so Hometown just scrape it in to qualify under the group origin rule.




AN DARA GNÍOMH // THE SECOND ACT

http://wordpress.hotpress.com/themusicshow/wp-content/uploads/sites/9/2012/02/lisahannigan350w.jpg
LISA HANNIGAN // "Knots" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYdPtcx-4mo)

Originally from Meath, the 34-year-old singer songwriter is known for her unique and noticeably Irish voice and music. Hannigan has also had chart success and formerly frequent airplay in Ireland and even in the United States. She'll perform her 2011 hit "Knots" in the Leinster national final.




AN TRÍUR GNÍOMH // THE THIRD ACT

http://d1ya1fm0bicxg1.cloudfront.net/2014/04/imelda-may-tickets_08-15-14_23_5355698d19fd5.jpg
IMELDA MAY // "It's Good To Be Alive (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq2YUEFELLc)" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq2YUEFELLc)
Jazz and rockabilly singer Imelda May is a huge star in Ireland. From winning a Meteor Award, performing at the 52nd Grammy Awards and three consecutive number 1 albums in Ireland as well as a number 1 on the Billboard US Heat chart, there seems to be no stopping her massive success! May will perform her recent hit "It's Good To Be Alive" at Amhrán 45.

Thank you everyone who voted for ::lein in SF2, here's to the final on our début! xhug
As simply announcing my act would kind of give the song away too, I'm going to reveal step by step clues as to who our next artist is :P

HINT 1: ​Louis Walsh. Again.

EvanESCIreland
22nd April 2015, 02:42
So I forgot I could only send artists from Leinster so I don't know if my next representative meets the criteria for artists (Guess it's another hint :P)

So if that doesn't work out, Leinster will resort to the always loved plan B: Slut Pop :D

NADIA FORDE // "BPM"

Lyrics

Here we go
So don't you tell me no
Tonight we'll lose control
And let go

Sun goes down
I feel it in the ground
So cut up on the sound
In it goes

This beat has got me hypnotised
The lights are all over the sky
Won't you turn it up, won't you turn it up, up, up
Tearing up the club, tearing up the club, club, club
Got me feeling hot, got me feeling hot, hot, hot
Roll my body 'round to the BPM

To the BPM
I am in love with this feeling tonight
May it never end
Come turn me up now I know I'm alive

Feel the speakers pound
I hear it all around
Reach out and take me hand
Don't slow down

I can feel your breath
Exhale against my neck
And as we grind in time
Free your mind

This beat has got me hypnotised
The lights are all over the sky
Won't you turn it up, won't you turn it up, up, up
Tearing up the club, tearing up the club, club, club
Got me feeling hot, got me feeling hot, hot, hot
Roll my body 'round to the BPM

To the BPM
I am in love with this feeling tonight
May it never end
Come turn me up now I know I'm alive

(Background)
My body's lost in this feeling
I can not try to conceal it
My body's lost in this feeling
I can not try to conceal it
My body's lost in this feeling
I can not try

To the BPM
I am in love with this feeling tonight
May it never end
Come turn me up now I know I'm alive
To the BPM
If this is heaven on earth then I'll die
You take this freedom and I wanna fly
BPM

Apologies for being non-existent during this edition, exams took over. Unfortunately you guys didn't like haunting drunk egg eating and sadly Róisín flopped xqueenbitch

Following the WV47 final, ::lein will be withdrawing (because bad results and I have no other songs that I have faith in) but it won't be the last of me in WV! See you soon in what ever region I spring up in soon ;)
