In collaboration with Eurovision Union, we will be reviewing some of their 21st Century favourites, while over on their site, you will find their reviews of our favourites!

Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite 

Molly Sterling – Playing With Numbers | 12th place, 35 points (Semi-Final)

Molly had a good song and voice, but during her live performance she really failed in connecting with the people at home. She almost never looked in the camera, making her far away from the people at home, who kept her in the semi’s. It’s one of the better Irish entries of the decade. But that also says something about a lot of the other songs we had to endure during the last couple of years…

Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite

Molly Sterling – Playing With Numbers | 12th place, 35 points (Semi-Final)

I love Molly Sterling, her voice is incredible – like butter. Unfortunately, I despise the song – felt it was quite bland and safe, and as a result, I didn’t connect with it at all. Also felt the staging was a bit plain, didn’t really help Molly shine and allow the audience to connect with her but still one of the better entries Ireland has sent in the 21st century.
