She won Ireland’s national final wearing pajamas, and she looked like she’d had a few drinks before hitting the stage at the Eurovision pre-parties.
And now Ireland’s Brooke Scullion has plans for yet another visual iteration with her Eurovision 2022 staging.
Speaking to The Six O’Clock News in Ireland, the “That’s Rich” hitmaker made clear her stage show has evolved and is evolving. She said:
“The way that I describe it everyone is now is: Late Late was primary school, this Euro-tour that I’ve been doing is, like, a secondary school. And then we’re going to get to university in the Eurovision. So no more slumber parties. She’s graduated.”
“I’m still not in any way sexy — I’ve still got the physique of a nine-year-old boy — but we’re good. I’m gonna try and make it look a little more appealing.”
Brooke says Ireland’s Eurovision staging has been reworked

Staging has been a consistent concern for fans of the song.
Writing in our recent Wiwi Jury review, Oliver flagged the stage show as a potential limitation.
“Fiery girl bops are few and far between this year, but Brooke is bringing the fun,” he writes. “A nod to feminine empowerment, “That’s Rich” fills the dancefloor and brings out the listener’s inner provocateur with its flirtatious and feisty lyrics. Bar the distorted middle eight, it’s a solid studio cut.”
“Red flags pop up in Brooke’s live performance. She’s got the vocal prowess, but her staging needs a drastic overhaul. A set of faux-silk Primark pyjamas doesn’t scream rich. With a bit of extra polishing to the visual presentation and Brooke’s confidence on stage, Team Ireland will have glowing product.”
