On The Late, Late Show special at 22:35 CET tonight, host Ryan Tubridy will present the five songs that are in contention for EuroSong 2015, and a combination of five regional juries and televoting will determine which song will represent Ireland in the Second Semi-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest on Thursday the 21st of May.
Ireland are the most successful nation in the Eurovision Song Contest having won seven times, in 1970, 1980, 1987, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1996.
Johnny Logan is the only singer to win the contest twice, with What's Another Year in 1980 and his self composed entry, Hold Me Now in 1987. He also composed the winning song in 1992, Why Me? sung by Linda Martin.
Dublin has hosted the contest more times that any other city, an impressive six times; in 1971, 1981, 1988, 1994, 1995 and 1997.
Although they have won the contest the most times, Ireland have also come last twice, in 2007 and in 2013, though they have never yet received the dreaded 'nul points'.
