Could Sinead O’Connor be a potential frontrunner for Eurovision 2022? It seems that former Eurovision boss, Julian Vignoles thinks so.

Despite Ireland having a celebrated Eurovision history, this year and in 2019 we unfortunately came last in the semi-finals. This conversation has cropped up after Sinead tweeted recently about RTE never sending her to the song contest.

She said; “Always wondered why they never sent me to sing the Eurovision song: why send a child to do a man’s job like? I’d have blown them away”.

Speaking with The Irish Sun, Julian, who is an expert on all things Eurovision, is a firm believer that Sinead could win it for Ireland; “Sinead would have a big recognition factor across Europe. She’s also used to playing big stages and is massively charismatic.”

“There is the matter of the song but for a gifted songwriter with a proven track record like Sinead, I wouldn’t say it’s outside her capability to write a Eurovision contender.

“Perhaps a quiet song would play to her strengths, and connect with millions of people.”

This would make sense given that her most popular song, and the one that got her on a global stage was her haunting rendition of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U.

Continuing he shared that; “Sinead would be the oldest singer at Eurovision but that’s not necessarily a negative, the juries wouldn’t mind, neither would the public voting.”

“Her talent and ability would overcome all obstacles. Sinead would have the whole country behind her.”

I also think Sinead won’t come last for Ireland in her semi-final. We’d be in the final.”
