    Re: IRELAND 2018

    I bet we're going to send someone innovative and exciting on the Irish music scene that is really going to grab the audience by the balls and won't let go until the time comes to hold the trophy in Rome.

    Oh no, wait, we'll probably just send whoever sings loudest at the RTÉ Christmas party.

    Obligatory "I hope RTE changes their tactics for next year"

    I used to get really excited for Eurovision, but it sucks the life out of the whole thing when it feels like your own country can't be bothered anymore.

    Anyone even remotely associated with Louis Walsh should be banned from submitting a song

    Please. If they do absolutely nothing else, just don't take anymore advice from Louis Walsh.

    Re: IRELAND 2018

    Some blogger asked Samantha Mumba if she'd like to represent us next year and she said yes! Whether or not RTÉ will take that offer is a different matter.

    I'm not sure people appreciate how hard it is to qualify these days - it's a completely different competition to how it was when we used to win back in the Nineties. It's the most professional song contest in the world and everybody throughout Europe throws their best songwriters, their best singers and their best staging and designers and everybody at it.
    Clearly not everybody throughout Europe.

    I think it's an insult to Ireland's music scene to imply Brendan Murray and the people who wrote "Dying to Try" are the best we have to offer. We're in big trouble if that's really true.

    ------

    On another note, I feel like our most recent two entries have been really cynical. Like they were created solely to try to get a strangle hold on peoples votes because it sounds like something "contemporary" or "radio friendly". Which clearly isn't the case, they're both like watered down caricatures of what a radio hit would be.

    They feel like they're missing passion and creativity. It's important to have a song that people can relate to and find catchy....but some risk taking isn't a bad thing either. Better to be bold and flop than to be boring and flop.

    I mean can you imagine Ireland ever sending something like Romania? I certainly can't. (well I suppose to be fair we're not a yodeling country but you get my point. )

    Re: IRELAND 2018

    The problem with Ireland and RTÉ is that RTÉ play it so so so safe that we genuinely could send something edgy and different that stands out but if it places on the right hand side of the scoreboard or fails to qualify for whatever arbitrary reason (a difficult semi final, a strong year, a poor place in the running order, etc.) then RTÉ will turn around and say "better stick to the safe stuff" and continue sending shit for the next decade and point to the failure of the "different" song as a reason why we shouldn't send anything different, rather than trying again. They won't admit their own mistakes when they send rubbish like Nicky Byrne and Brendan Murray but they'll be very quick to point out the mistakes of others if the efforts of others fail. You can see this in their programming. They never put out anything new or any interesting shows unless they've been tried and tested in the UK/US first. Even look at Fair City where they couldn't come up with a decent storyline if it danced naked in front of them twirling its ponytail, because that would require innovation which is something they just don't have in RTÉ.

    I would like to see Markus Feehily representing Ireland with something like that.
