Her first 'live' performance. Seems she is struggling with the high notes. Doesn't look too good for Ireland, isn't it?

So it's not just me getting the impression that there were a load of bum notes.

It seemed like she was struggling with the mic as well during that performance. So to be fair there is a part of me that thinks performing on the late late show doesn't help.

I found it funny when Ryan said something like "it sounds so 2020".

Story of your life, like the story of Ireland in 21st century in ESC. Just nothing. So sorry that :ie: has been amazing in ESC in the years before 2000.

In Your Eyes was a good song, but I did feel they often got overrated in the 90s.

I guess at the very least one thing this song had in it's favour is there isn't any other song in it's lane this year.

Carly Rae Jepsen and P!nk...generic?

(Appropriate gif is appropriate since Lesley sings the Shenom's theme)



This is the one glaring issue I've had since RTE initially announced that they were searching for an LGBT+ artist and the staging would be done by an LGBT+ group. Conchita is an outlier, but how many people watching last year knew right off the bat that Duncan was bisexual?

It goes from being something organic (choosing an artist because you think they have potential or they've submitted a great song), to something calculated (well, Together was a hit and last year's winner was bi) and that RTE will be sitting around in May like

Everything about their music could not be more generic even if their tried, but I guess P!nk is edgy compared to idk Ashley Simpson, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift*? :ROFLMAO: Carly Rae has one good song and we know which one I mean. Everything else sounds the same, it is sung in the same way, has the same middle-of-the-road instrumental and is based on like 3 chords total.



*Taylor though disses her exes in her lyrics quite nicely.

Do you think that Lesley looks a little bit like ManuElla ?
