As Junior Eurovision 2023 draws ever closer, it’s Ireland’s turn to announce the artist who will represent the country next month in Nice.
Jessica McKean was crowned the winner of the Junior Eurovision Éire 2023 national final, which was broadcast last night, having earlier been filmed at the RTÉ studios in Dublin. The result was determined entirely by public vote, after each contestant was tasked to perform two songs, an irish-language cover of a popular song and a cover of a former Irish Eurovision entry.
The song that Jessica will perform in Nice will be specially written for her and is expected to be revealed at a later date.
Ireland managed to achieve their best result at Junior Eurovision last year, as Sophie Lennon finished in 4th place with the song “Solas”.
