The Irish broadcaster RTÉ has been rather silent about artist information regarding their national selection this year so far. It has been confirmed, however, that this year the mentor system will be replaced with an open selection method. The national final will take place on 27 February – possibly integrated in the Late Late Show again.
Now it appears the first of the five Eurosong acts has been leaked by the photographer Evan Doherty. On her Instagram profile she posted the following:
Shooting the beautiful Nikki Kavanagh this morning for this years Eurosong taking place at the end of the month on the Late Late! A Glenda/Jessie-J hybrid #Eurosong2015
Nikki Kavanagh is no stranger to Eurovision fans. In 2011 she already tried to compete for Ireland with her song Falling. However, the ticket to Düsseldorf went to the Jedward twins instead.
Are you happy about Nikki Kavanagh returning to Eurosong? Who should her competitors be?
