ESC 2016 IRELAND: IS IT NICKY BYRNE?

The rumour is Nicky Byrne has been selected by RTE for the Eurovision song contest 2016 in Stockholm. Earlier this season they let us believe there will be an internal choice instead of the usual Late Late Show national final and then nothing. Ireland seems to be panicking a little as if Sweden was to win again they would equal their seven wins but being the latest winner Sweden would count more. Ireland's last win is in 1996, 20 years ago while she has won twice recently. If Ireland fails to qualify this year it will be their worst run of failure ever. 
Anyways, last time Ireland chose internally, in 2007, Dervish finished last in Helsinki...... So, it's time to bring in the big guns?
Nicky Byrne was a member of Westlife, that sold over 50 million records between 1998-2012 and scored 10 #1 albums, 14 #1 singles and 26 top-10 singles in UK alone. After Westlife he's become a succesful radio DJ besides being singer-songwriter, radio and tv host, actor and dancer. He has done also Strickly come dancing and has been voted The Sexiest Man of Ireland as late as 2014.....He has already been Ireland's spokesperson.... He seems to be very popular in Ireland, but this said, in Europe he's just ex-Something. What he needs is a killer song or the name means nothing. We have seen that many times.
