“Every year there’s one or two songs that people think we want to hear, but we don’t. We’re looking for individuality, change the song a bit, slow it down or something. Song choice is crucial and so is presentation.”

He continued, “If you come in nervous, we’re going to be nervous. We want you to be happy, this could change someones life. And I’d love to get an Irish winner this year.
