Ireland's entry to this year’s Eurovision will be decided tonight, when six acts go head-to-head.


It's the first time since 2015 that the country’s entry will be decided by a public vote, with the last six acts chosen by a panel of experts.



The vote will be held on the Late Late Show later, the Editor of Eurovision, John Stanton, says no two acts in tonight's competition are the same.

"It's interesting to see the varieties of style's we've got there. We've got a ballad, we've got something in the style of Adele, we've got something in the style of Ed Sheeran. So there's basically something for everyone there."



So, who are the acts in contention?


Patrick O'Sullivan will be competing with his song One Night, One Kiss, One Promise. 


Which was composed by Nicky Byrne, Lar Kaye and Danny O'Reilly.


Here he is on his debut TV performance.


Next up will be Janet Grogan with Ashes of Yesterday.


Janet's has performed at the Eurovision before , as a backup singer for Nicky Byrne in 2016 and Ryan O'Shaughnessy in 2018.



The third performance will be from Brendan Murray.


He'll be singing Real Love.


Brendan represented Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, performing to over 180 million people.



The fourth singer is Miles Graham, he's a Dublin based singer/songwriter, and he'll be performing his song Yeah We're Gonna Get Out Of It.



Song five will be I'm Loving Me, and will be performed by Rachel Goode.


She's from Ballinasloe, Co Galway.



And the final contest trying to win the chance to perform at this years Eurovision is Brooke Scullion.


Brooke, from Derry, will be performing her song That's Rich.



The last Eurovision Song Contest was won by Italian group Måneskin, meaning Italy will host this years competition. It will be taking place in the Pala Alpitour in Turin, on the week of May 10th.


The Late Late Show Eurosong 2022 Special airs at 9:35pm on RTÉ One.
