Junior Eurovision 2014 is done and dusted, and now all eyes turn to 2015. The internet is already abuzz with rumours about next year’s contest. And one in particular caught our eye – Ireland wants to debut!

We can confirm that there is some truth to the speculation. The Irish language broadcaster TG4 have told wiwibloggs that:

Adare Productions will be overseeing choosing the Irish candidate and entry for TG4, the Irish broadcaster of the competition.

In turn the production company confirmed that they:

are in advanced discussions at the moment

And they will let us know more as soon as details are confirmed. Now we don’t want to get our hopes up just yet, but things are looking rather promising, don’t ya think?

I have an idea for an Irish debut… 1) The songs must be one of the following genres.. *Pop-rock *Country-pop *R&B 2) If Ireland’s selection progress is a national final, then they can get an idea from the Netherlands’ selection, Junior Songfestival. Participants’ submitted songs could be accompanied by music videos. Then, all the candidates for Ireland’s selection could could shoot the music video for a group song! I think Ireland’s national selection should be called “Eurojunior Ireland.” It’s progress would compose of two semi-finals, as well as the grand final.
