Who is Ireland's Eurovision singer Ryan O'Shaughnessy?

Putting on a show! Jessica revealed her performance is'shaping up really well as she hit the stage at the Altice Arena in Portugal's capital Lisbon

Ryan O'Shaughnessy, an Irish contestant, sang "Together", a song about a failed relationship, at the semi-finals Tuesday in Lisbon.

It's the first time for Portugal to host the competition, after Salvador Sobral won the contest a year ago.

"Tu Cancion" is Spain's heart-warming entry in this year's Eurovision 2018 contest that takes place in Lisbon on May 12.

It's been 21 years since the United Kingdom first triumphed at the Eurovision Song Contest and we've not reached the top half of the scoreboard since 2011. His Together doesn't sound impressive on first listen - a cliche-stuffed love song ("I thought we'd be together 'til we die") - but in Lisbon it soared, a real tear-jerker.


This Tuesday night, beginning at 21:00 central European time, 10 countries will be selected out of 19 performing at the Altice Arena, by the Tagus River.

SuRie said about her song: "Storm is a smash! I am feeling so happy and I am feeling so proud of my team". The track was a massive hit with the judges, who immediately sent the singer-songwriter through to the semi-finals. "We made the Eurovision what it was and we're going to make it what it is in the future".

Supporting Jessica on her Eurovision journey is her boyfriend-of-nine-years Themeli Magripilis.

Fans were absolutely delighted - especially since Ireland hasn't qualified for the final since 2013.

Meanwhile, Cyprus are the firm favourites after an unprecedented move from 66/1 to 5/2 following Monday night's semi-finals jury show.
