Bambie Thug came sixth in the Eurovision 2024 race.

Ireland’s act during Eurovision performed by artist Bambie Thug drew mixed reactions from the fans. The non-binary singer performed a satanic ritual live on the competition’s stage, showing them screaming from inside a circle surrounded by candles. Many on the internet were shocked by the song yet others called it a well aesthetically produced number.

Thug was seen screaming at the top of her voice while performing ‘Doomsday Blue’ in the First Semi-Final of Eurovision 2024. They were dressed like a devil during the competition held in Malmö, Sweden. Despite many fans rating it on social media as a top 3 act, the jury at Eurovision placed Ireland’s Eurovision act Bambie Thug in sixth place.

Among the several reactions that spiraled on social media following the Thug’s performance on Saturday, a user wrote on X: “A satanic ritual was performed on stage at Eurovision 2024. God save Europe.”

“Ireland cleansing Israel off the stage with an exorcism. #Eurovision Ireland’s Crown The Witch act was creatively crazy. One to watch for the top 3,” another user added heaping praise on the Macroom-born star.

“Everything about the Irish presentation is just perfect. I could watch it over and over again. Three minutes of captivating theatre,” one more user added.

While terming Bambie’s performance as “slayed,” a user said “Ireland’s song is like a nightmare but also iconic at the same time.”

With the song “Together,” Ireland was represented by Ryan O’Shaughnessy at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. With 136 points, he came in sixteenth. To the surprise of many, Ireland’s Bambie Thug made it to the Eurovision final last night.

Both Bambie along with another artist, who briefly appeared on the stage, had intense makeup and fake teeth. Although Ireland’s show has generated excitement because of its “radically different” approach, several people did not like the performance.
