Eurovision legend Johnny Logan has shared his opinion on Ireland’s 2024 entry.
Cork artist Bambie Thug wowed the audience at Eurosong on Friday and was voted to represent Ireland on the Eurovision stage in May.
Johnny won the iconic song contest back in 1980 and 1987, with What’s Another Year?, And Hold Me Now.
So it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about Eurovision.
Speaking about Bambie Thug, he told The Sunday World: “They could win the Eurovision with this song. It’s probably the best and most original entry that Ireland has had for as long as I can remember.
“I think it’s a very good choice and it will definitely get attention. What I saw last night is that it was eye-catching and different.”
He continued: “If it doesn’t end up doing really well at Eurovision I will be quite surprised. I’ve always hoped that the Irish songs would do well over the last few years, but I never really felt that they would.”
“This one I think has a really good chance. It just depends on the make-up of the jury and the other songs that are in the contest.”
We have to agree with Johnny!
This year’s contest will be held in Malmö, Sweden, with the two semi-finals taking place on Tuesday, May 7th and Thursday 9th followed by the Grand Final on Saturday, May 11th.
