Dying to Try
Brendan is dressed in a classy white shirt and black trousers. Although this is a very simple presentation, it gives him quite a mature look, but it might not be the finished look.

Brendan Murray is the last entrant to take to his meet & greet session today, who went on to speak of his meeting with Ireland’s former winner Linda Martin.
For three years prior to his solo career towards the end of last year, Brendan was part of the Irish boyband Hometown before they decided to go their separate ways on their own individual journeys. For Brendan, it was Eurovision which would be his next career move.
Brendan stands inside a hot air balloon and ‘flying’ away with a drawn backdrop of clouds, mountains, and cities in black, white and red, in a performance that could bring Ireland to the top in the upcoming Junior Eurovision probably. Performed well vocally, the overall performance isn’t so appealing and by terms of ballads it is Claudia Faniello from Malta that wins this duel.
We’d wish we could write more about Brendan and his will to try but nothing really much happens.
