Ireland are on the Eurovision map...

Next up it’s Lesley Roy from Ireland, who is singing Maps. She’s the only barefoot contestant this year, but you can’t really tell because she’s busy working with some really clever props and an on-stage treadmill. No digital for Lesley – all the camera frames and flicking pages in this performance are hand-made and physically present on the stage, making it look like she’s in her own storybook.
