Ireland: Eurosong Participant Leaked

Nikki Kavanagh will most likely participate in the Irish selection show for Eurovision 2015. The Irish final will take place later this month and speculation has already begun as to which five artists will be taking part this year. However, a mix up on Instagram has now given away the identity of the first artist.

Earlier on today, popular Irish photographer Evan Doherty(@evanfoto on instagram) posted the following photograph to her Instagram profile.

The photograph was accompanied by the caption: “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”.

This has confirmed that the first participant in the Irish Eurovision Selection show will be Nikki Kavanagh, who competed in Eurosong in 2011 and finished 2nd with the song “Falling”, just behind winners Jedward and their song “Lipstick”.

The Irish selection for Eurovision 2015 will be held on the 27th of February during the Late Late Show; the same format that has been running for a number of years. It is not yet known who the other four artists competing to represent Ireland will be, however it is anticipated that Irish broadcaster RTE will reveal the list of entries on Monday 9th February.
