In cooperation with RTÉ esctoday.com had an interview with this year's Irish representatives.

Donna and Joe, you won You're A Star. Congratulations! Did you expect it and how did you react?

It took a while to sink in but we are still over the moon about it.

Why did you get involved with the Irish selection process You're A Star?

We had both done a lot of competitions in singing, like Community Games and other teenage singing competitions, and so it was a natural progression for us.

Is You're A Star a big event in Ireland?

It is huge, this was its third year and the public go mad for it, cos they can vote each week for a winner. It is like the Irish version of Pop Idol.
