If you happened to catch the Eurosong contest on Friday night’s ‘Late Late Show’, you’ll be familiar with each of the five songs that were proposed to represent Ireland in this year’s Eurovision.

And although Erica Cody was one of the favourites on the night, Bambie Thug ultimately was crowned victorious with their song ‘Doomsday Blue’ and will represent Ireland in Malmo in May.
