Due to the change in the process for selecting the Irish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, RTE have been flooded with hundreds of potential songs / singers, hoping to be selected in the shortlist for the National final.
The process is gaining more momentum as we hear that Shane Butler and Ian Colgan have entered a song.
The guys are from the Irish capital and are no strangers to success and in 2012, from the RTE television series The Hit, ex Westlife singer Bryan McFadden sang a song called Invisible which was penned by them and had a European release.
A www.meathchronicle.ie/ article states that [they] jumped at the chance to enter their song, Be Mine, a modern pop ballad with a country twist. Performed by the hugely popular Robert Mizzell [pictured above] this song is certainly different from the now cliché Euro Pop sound we’ve become accustomed to at the Eurovision.
This talented trio are confident that not only can their song beat off the competition to become Ireland?s entry but can take the top prize in Europe.
Ian Colgan says ‘Be Mine’ takes us back to basics – a great song performed by an incredible vocalist, we want to bring back the Eurovision glory days to Ireland.
