It’s the day of the Eurosong final, and in just a few hours we will finally know who will represent Ireland at Eurovision 2015 in Austria. The winner will be chosen during The Late Late Show, with all the action kicking off at 21:35 GMT / 22:35 CET. We’ll publish a post with the viewing links soon. But first, we need to determine the contenders.

For the last few weeks, we’ve been asking y’all to vote for your favourites in our poll. After counting 2,619 votes, we can now reveal the act you want to represent the Emerald Isle in Vienna. Topping the poll in a landslide of 1,212 votes (46.28%), Erika Selin and “Break Me Up” is clearly the readers’ choice. Fusing together country and pop, the song resembles an Avicii/Corrs mashup.

Erika Selin “Break Me Up”

Nikki Kavanagh occupies the runner-up spot. She stormed to an early lead with her power ballad “Memories”, but amidst comparisons to entries already selected by Malta and Switzerland she slipped down the leaderboard. However, she still managed to amass an impressive 718 votes (27.42%). Write her off at your peril!

The remaining three acts are well behind. After spending almost two weeks with just 35 votes, Alex Saint and “She’s So Fine” has surged up the poll to finish in third place with 327 votes (12.49%) – no comment. Molly Sterling’s “Playing With Numbers” is fourth with 229 votes (8.74%) and Kat Mahon’s “Anybody Got A Shoulder” is fifth with 133 votes (5.07%).

I love Nikki and Erica. But Nikki’s song was recorded in one lot, so how it sounds will practicaly be what we get. But there are some effects in Ericas song that we wont get live. SO we’ll have to wait and see

“Memories” is really strong! Gosh, if it wins, it will be the first time since 2003 when i have really liked an Irish song. It would be one of my favourites songs of this year’s Eurovision. “Break me up” sounds not very mature. Not my cup of tea.

It’s all about opinions, but there have been a few Wiwi poll and jury predictions going astray so far including Siru (UMK), Ida (UMK), Anne (DMGP), Timbelle (DGE), Ellen (MF) Linus (MF), to name a few if I remember rightly. This could be another!! If “Break Me UP” was all Irish, it would be a “dead cert”, but having said that Nikki also has a difficult vocal, but she is a Kavanagh, and it’s her turn. It would be fun if Molly sneaks in and pipped it, but I doubt it. If Ireland choose Erika, it could be “egg on… Read more »

why the heck is that horrible song in 3rd above Molly?!?!

Also Ireland won’t vote for Erika, she has absolutely no profile here and although her song is catchy it doesn’t make that impact Nikki does. Nikki would’ve won in 2011 if the high profile Jedward weren’t there. She’s the clear favourite.

Considering the highly aggressive campaign for Erika lately on WiwiBloggs (most Irish articles are about her, while other contestants are largely ignored), I’m not surprised she’s considered the favorite to win. I hope Nikki wins.

I’m with everyone who voted in the poll. It can definitely stand out from the other competing song entries so far and I also heard that Erika is bringing along Timoteij as back-up vocalists. Lets hope Ireland will be wise tonight.

I think Memories would perform best at Eurovision tbh. Break Me Up might rake in Scandinavian points and it should qualify from the Semifinal, but I don’t know if it would do well in the final.

It really does show the particular music taste of this website, that people enjoy shit music like “Break Me Up”.

Top 2 is well deserved, both songs stand out, and it’ll all depend of a live presentation. In my opinion Erika should def win, because it’ll be the dance song in a kinda ballad semi final, that will make the song stand out! And I like it more than ‘Memories’ 🙂
