Ireland's Eurosong 2011- has just finished and what a great show it was. Featuring the non other than the fabulous Cheryl Baker who was on the panel of Eurovision experts- then the Original Bucks Fizz did a performance of Making your mind up' just before the voting began.
Ireland came up trumps in 2011 with some very different songs & styles 5 in all choosen by music mentors from the industry. This was the songs and line-up as they performed in Eurosong -with the final scores.
It was a very tight finish on the RTE scoreboard, with jury votes & televotes had been limited to just 33% this year. This seemed to be a disadvantage for the Star act- Jedward' however it turned out to still put them on top and the winners on the night. The regional juries votes gave Nikki Kavanagh the most votes with Jedward a very close 2nd, then the televote as expected gave Jedward the lead they needed to win.
Yes- as we predicted on an earlier post Eurosong was a 2-horse race between Jedward & Nikki Kavanagh, with her massive voice. Jedward jumped like bunnies with joy at the close victory with a 2 point lead on the night.
Good luck boys-you did it-
the song's called 'Lipstick' with this smaller Late Late Show' Tv stage it seemed to limit the twins with the song performance, we expect in the big massive Eurovision stage they will show us everything they have got to offer.
Go go Jedward- can they make it Dublin 2012?
