“We might be different, we might be unique”


Wild Youth

Wild Youth is an Irish indie rock group that originated in Dublin in 2016. Its members include David Whelan, Conor O’Donohoe, Ed Porter, and Callum McAdam. They will represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 with their song “We Are One”. The band has previously opened for famous artists such as Niall Horan, Lewis Capaldi, and Zara Larson. Conor O’Donohoe is the lead vocalist and primary songwriter of Wild Youth, while David Whelan plays the keyboard, Edward Porter is on the guitar, and Callum McAdam plays the drums. Wild Youth earned their place to represent Ireland through the Late Late Show, where they competed against several other acts, including one from Public Image Ltd.

The second rehearsal

Wild Youth’s performance appears to be a hit, with the band looking like they’re having a blast on stage. The Irish delegation should be pleased with the result. However, unlike the official video, the band isn’t wearing sequinned masks. Instead, lead singer Conor is dressed in a flashy gold catsuit with flared pants. The staging is the first of the day to feature stairs, arranged in a horseshoe shape with all the LEDs in use.

The entire performance is visually and sonically stunning. Pyrotechnics are also used, with large jets of flames shooting out from around the stage just before the final chorus. The use of pyrotechnics is quite impressive. It’s easy to imagine the crowd in the Liverpool Arena singing along to the uplifting chorus.
