Ireland will be selecting its Eurovision representative on February 24th when a special edition of The Late Late Show : A Eurosong Special will take place in Dublin. Five acts will be competing for the Irish ticket to Baku.
Jedward is without a doubt the most famous act taking part in the national selection of this year. The twins will perform a song written by Nick Jarl from Sweden and called Waterline which is a metaphor for ’falling in love’.
”Waterline is a fantastic European pop song. Nick uses the word waterline as a metaphor for falling in love, and this will be his first time in Eurovision, if we make it” , says former Eurovision winner and Jedward’s mentor Linda Martin. She adds : ”Nothing is a given. Jedward and I know that we are up against five good songs from five great singers. It’s a five-horse race”.
Ireland will compete in the second half of the first semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.
