The 5 potential entries that will compete at the forthcoming 2013 Irish national final will be revealed today on the Mooney show on RTE Radio 1 at 16.00 CET.

Yesterday RTE revealed the names of the 5 acts that will battle for the golden ticket to Malmo along with the titles of their respective entries and the names of the composers behind the songs.

You can follow the show live here.

Zoë Alexis Bohorquez, Ryan Dolan, Aimee Fitzpatrick, Inchequin and Kasey will be battling for the golden ticket to Malmö on 22 February in their quest to represent Ireland at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest.

Last November RTÉ nominated five mentors with proven experience in the Irish music industry and asked them each to select an act and a song which they believe has the potential to be a Eurovision winner.
