The Irish delegation of 2017 is working hard and hasn’t stopped rehearsing. On the eve before their departure to Kyiv, the Irish entrant Brendan Murray announced the names of his backing vocalists.
The team is remarkable
The five vocalists will accompany Brendan on stage will be Graham Kelly, Jules Edwards, Shane McDaid, Alison Vardmiller and Margot Daly. Apart from the continuous rehearsals at the RΤÉ studios in Dublin for Eurovision, the team is preparing to perform in The Late Late Show on that Friday. This is Ireland’s most famous television show since its beginning in 1964. The Late Late Show is quite related to the contest, as from 2009 to 2015, the Irish representative was chosen through a special edition of it. Its current host is Ryan Tubridy.
