Erica’s song is entitled Love Me Like I Do.

Speaking on The Ray D’arcy Show, she described the song, saying: “The song has never meant more to me than it does right now. It really helped me get through one of the most challenging times in my life while navigating a break-up.

“It’s the ultimate feel-good self-love anthem.”


The second entry is AILSHA! Her song is entitled Go Tobann.

AILSHA’s music is at the forefront of the current rock revival and has taken the music scene by storm in 2023 with four consecutive releases featured on BBC Radio One.

She said about her track, Go Tobann, on The Ray D’arcy Show: “I wanted to create a banger of a track that incorporated my own alternative sound with a twist by using some recognisable Irish phrases scattered throughout the song.”


Irish Rapper JYellowL is hoping to take to the stage with the tricolour later this year. He will be putting everything into his song Judas!

His debut album 2020 D| Vision was nominated for Irish Album of the Year 2020 at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize Awards and debuted at number two on the official iTunes album charts.

His success continued with tours with the likes of Nelly as well as his music being featured in Normal People.

Isabella Kearney

Singer/Songwriter Isabella Kearney wants to bring home the trophy with her song entitled Let Me Be The Fire.

She is an accomplished artist based in Nashville, Tennessee but grew up between Ireland and Australia.

Isabella’s songwriting successes have included the single Jealous on Jessica Mauboy’s album Hilda and the single Only Thing Missing written with The Orphanage on Guy Sebastian’s album T.R.U.T.H.

Bambie Thug

Bambie Thug was announced as the fifth act eager to make it to the Eurovision stage.

Bambie Thug’s song is entitled Doomsday Blues, a relatable title to say the least!

The non-binary artist is a force to be reckoned with, a completely independent artist who has amassed over 45k monthly listeners via their unique, self-styled Ouija Pop.

Next in Line

Brand new Irish boyband, Next in Line, managed by Louis Walsh were the final act announced to compete in Eurosong!

The five members of Next in Line are Conor O’Farrell from Meath, Neung Kelly who hails from Carlow, Harry O’Connell and Conor Davis from Dublin and Navan native Joshua Regala.

They’ll be hoping for glory with their song Love Like Us!

The contenders will battle it out on The Late Late Eurosong Special on Friday, January 26th at 9.35pm on RTÉ One, where they will face a combination of the National Jury, International Jury, and public vote.
