Brooke That's Rich RTE Eurosong 2022

Brook Scullion doesn’t just sing for the people. She listens to them too.

Following her victory at Eurosong 2020 in Ireland, the “That’s Rich” hitmaker logged onto Twitter and warmed up YouTube to hear what fans were saying about her Eurovision 2022 entry.

After having a think and hitting the studio, the Derry girl has now released what she’s called the “#Eurovision Edit” of her song.

Brooke re-masters “That’s Rich” in new Eurovision version

Speaking to us following the release of the remastered “That’s Rich”, Brooke said:

“After winning Eurosong, we regrouped as a team, almost straight away to analyse the performance, take on board the feedback from Eurovision fans and think of how we can elevate the track to take it to the next level.”

“We absolutely love how we’ve cut the instrumental in the, ‘Hey Stupid’ line – to give the crowd a moment and have something to sing a long to.”

“Towards the end we’ve doubled the drums so we’re building to a big finish. Who doesn’t love some Eurovision sparkle to top off an incredible week!”

Brooke is definitely happy with the new finish, as you may have seen on Twitter when she shared news of the glow-up.

What do you think of the re-mastered Euro Edit? Do you feel the power? Does this give it that oomph so many of you were looking for? Let us know down below!

People are threatened cuz Ireland has a bop for a change. Bye bye fools. :’). Ireland will be in the Final easily as Brooke is a competent performer, with a good voice and charisma on camera.

No chance for Ireland to qualify. There is more chance that the sun will hit the earth and that we all be dead than Ireland getting into the finals. Clean your ears, and hear how horrible bad this is again.

Just gave it a listen and she did enhance the song where it needed to be improved with the feedback she was given, I’m impressed!
I see Brooke as a dark horse this year and she looks like she’ll be a delightful performer and person in Turin 🙂

It’s not a revamp people. I’m against revamps. Tinkering small pieces of the actual song is not a problem but Set Me Free’ing it doesn’t fly with moi.

Remaster? The YouTube video was uploaded 3 weeks ago? 2 weeks before the Irish national final, am I missing something?

There were slight changes made to that version, hence remaster. The changes are described in the article 🙂

The remaster YouTube video was uploaded on YouTube 3 weeks ago. 2 weeks before the national final. – my question is why did she not perform the remastered version in the national final ?

It wasn’t ready – she says in the interview that the song was only remastered in the last few days, i.e. ‘after’ Eurosong.

The version that was on that Youtube page up until now was the original one.

They swapped the audio on the YouTube music version. Old audio is still under the unofficial music video it seems

I love how the the Irish team takes it seriously and analyses the feedback they received. They are open to hear new ideas which is a great sign.

I think Ireland is going to be a surprise in the semifinal and will comfortably qualify. I mean it really depends on many factors but i think this song is very catchy and needs a smart staging. Brooke is soo charismastic and sweet, she is giving me Lena/Kalomira vibes.

She;s way above the previous Irish candidates who were cold and uninteresting (excluding Jedward). GOOD LUCK BROOKE!

I have only heard the original version. 3 minutes and I couldn’t find a SINGLE second that is interesting and memorable. It requires a special talent to make a song so bland and tasteless. Downvote me as much as you want. It won’t magically transform this into something decent.

I’m not going to listen this again, even if it was remastered.

If you didn’t listen to the remaster, your opinion doesn’t really count.

You took the time to come into the article and comment though, so you either secretly do care, or you’re just looking for attention.

I can already tell that Brooke will be an absolute delight in the interviews and everything surrounding Eurovision in Turin, she seems super fun. This remaster did exactly what needed to be done: give it more oomph in the chorus and make it seem more professional. If they nail the staging (i.e. just have a fun performance and don’t try to overdo it), this could be one of those entries for which everyone roots and it makes it through.

Hmmm, so are we to believe that if enough of her “fans” tell her to do something she’ll do it? That could be a recipe for disaster. It’s a pity they don’t tell her she needs a complete visual makeover.

It’s not like she did a complete overhaul, it was only tweaked slightly. I think it’s a positive thing that constructive criticism was considered, while still sticking with the original idea behind the song

Now do a version in Irish. I’m kind of over Ireland only sending songs in English.

When’s the last time they sent an Irish-language song to the adult Eurovision?

The contest was in Ireland for the first time in 1971. In 1972, it was in the UK.

Back on the night she was selected I commented here that I thought the track could benefit if they put more weight on the instrumental and I believe it’s what they went for with these subtle changes. Now the song has a “pulsation” during the chorus I was missing on the original version.

Sometimes songs benefit from being surrounded by mediocrity. She has a great voice. Best of luck and hopefully she can make it to the final. I know Ireland spent lots of money on Leslie Roy’s staging but it’s not about the money—it’s about how you spend it and executing good ideas well.

Sarah

Those subtle changes have made quite a difference in my opinion. The chorus packs more of a punch and the big stage will definitely benefit from the louder drums too.
I would love for her to showcase her voice more when it’s performed live, she has the vocal capability so she may as well show it off.

Sounds promising.
Love the way Brooke has taken fan reaction, both good and bad and taken it on board and tried to rectify.

Some artists come into the contest with an ego and then throw their toys out of the peak when they don’t do as well as they hoped.

Brooke is full of energy and life and definitely our best participant since maybe Jedward

He had the voice and the song but very little stage presence. He was singing a dance track but stayed still on stage. Very wooden.
Molly Sterling had the song too but the staging was cramped and plain
Lesley Roy had the song and the staging but lost the vocal.
There’s always been something just missing from our entries, even the good ones, until Brooke.
I’m just hoping we have a good staging, she’s able to pull it off vocally and we are good to go.

The new version still sounds very similar to the old one and I think that’s a wise decision. Some fans were pushing for a radical revamp, but there’s always the risk it will sound worse and not better if you go down that route.

What’s wrong with that? Last year Ukraine’s Go-A made a fantastic revamp. I actually love the effort of the artists!

Yes, but they didn’t revamp the song because of fan reaction. They had to revamp because the original song was too long and they need to write original lyrics because it was technically more of a cover of an ancient Ukrainian song. Shum needed to be whipped into Eurovision shape and it Paid off beautifully

What about Set Me Free? A lot of people responded positively to that revamp and it was very different from the original version.

Oh yeah, I hadn’t forgotten about set me free. That revamp saved the song from being eliminated in the semi finals. Speaking of Israeli revamps, I just read an interview that there will be a revamp of I.M. It was addressed that it was arranged and staged rather Hastly on X Factor and they’re planning to improve the song and that’s a very smart move. It’s not what my favorite songs at the moment, but I wish The revamp good luck.

I would say she just responded to constructive criticism, realizing that maybe some people had a point. Maybe they were never really satisfied with it themselves, and had to get in before a certain date.

To be fair I feel like ‘that’s rich’ is good as it is and doesn’t need a revamp. I don’t know what they could do different. It just needs a good performance and then I think it stands a good chance to qualify.

(I say this as a Eurovision fan with a lot of friends who are Eurovision fans: you will never please everyone, your best will never be good enough for some people, if you get too hung up on that you’re going to overthink it and your performance will suffer)

Intriguing stuff. I expect she’ll have a few opportunities until the contest to perform it a few times and hone the performance. I understand they have bigger plans for it than the LLS Studio allows (do wish they would use a bigger venue for Irish NFS though…).

I’m not so keen on that whole pjama party look, seems a bit childish to me. But there’s lots of potential!
