Irish child singer Anna Kearney has won the right to represent Ireland at the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Gliwice-Silesia, Poland. The young singer beat Orla McDermott and Savannah Phoenix-Monroe in the national final.
Check out this live performance during the semifinal:
Anna will be representing the Irish shamrock with the song “Banshee”, a mystical-sounding power ballad.
Anna is the fifth person to represent Ireland in the Junior Eurovision contest. Ireland, who joined the JESC family in 2015, achieved their best result of 10th place in 2016, with Zena Donelly’s “Bríce ar bhríce”.
Last year’s entrant, Taylor Hynes, finished 15th with his upbeat song “I O U”.
