With Irish broadcaster RTE ditching the mentor system and opening the Eurovision selection process to the public, we’ve already seen both Jedward and X Factor star Mary Byrne express interest in singing for their country in Vienna. And there’s another name to add to the list – 2013 contestant Ryan Dolan.
RTE, the Irish state broadcaster, is certainly interested. At the recent Eurovision Live Concert in Portugal, Ryan told us that RTE asked him if he had any interest in submitting a song in 2014. He declined because he did not have the right song at the time.
While his performance in 2013 may not have done so well, Ryan has kept busy, releasing singles “Start Again” and “Fall to the Floor” earlier this year and performing at the Eurovision Live concert in Portugal. There’s no denying the lad has talent!
Would you like to see Ryan Dolan return to the Eurovision stage? Or was his last placing in 2013 an unforgivable result? And if he returns, should he bring his oily dancers from Malmö?
