Ryan O’Shaughnessy will represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. He had internally been chosen as the representative in January and his song Together was released yesterday.

I really like the lyrics of the song, it’s actually a very emotional song. The vocals are great. And I quite like this style as well, it’s very sweet and moving. I just think that sweet songs don’t work at Eurovision anymore. I think we’re over that. I just hope that the live performance will be even better than the recorded studio version. I have this feeling that the live vocals could really sound magical, especially the parts with two voices. I really like those. And I’m very excited to see what performance they will make up for this song. It’s a very nice song and it could become a song I like listening to, but maybe not so suitable for Eurovision. 6/10
