#ESC 2014 IRELAND: THE FINAL'S THREESOME

Ireland, once the power state of Eurovision, is looking for their winning entry this Friday. Like in the previous years five acts chosen by as many mentors. The field is wide open this year as Jedward is not taking part this year either. Five quite pleasant songs and I must admit I have no clue who will win in the end.  
Heartbeat is the big fan favorite but will regular TV-viewers buy it? I think it's quite good. I wished they would have dared more in the production and arrangements, now it's a bit bland. Promising but not delivering. Don't hold on is oldfashioned but a good solid song sung well. The movie song I like a lot. Apparently Eoghan isn't loved much as a person (but what do we European voters know about that?) so it might play against him, which is a shame. Be mine makes me think of Bon Jovi for some reason. Also very catchy after a couple of listenings which means he might be lost in the crowd. Laura thinks I don't remember her but hey, I do. Since the first hearing of You don't remember me. Adelesque grower of a song. Lovely arrangement, good voice. If she delivers on stage with passion who knows? I'm fine with Laura, Kasey or Eoghan winning, hoping for Eoghan. Or Laura? Hmmm....

Patricia Roe - Don't hold on
Eoghan Quigg - The Movie Song
Can-linn feat.  Kasey Smith - Heartbeat
Andrew Mann - Be mine
Laura O'Neill - You don't remember me
