Ireland: The Late Late Show will most likely be the Irish national selection format for 2024!

The Irish delegation had been evaluating the prospects for the Eurovision project in the years that will follow, after their failed participation this year with “We are One” by Wild Youth which managed to accumulate only ten points in their semi final.

As a guest to Éirevision podcast, Michael Kealy gave his insight about what the next year’s Irish selection procedure would look like.

The Irish Eurovision representative for 2024 will most likely be selected through The Late Late Show. Michael Kealy mentioned that the plans are that the show will be aired somewhere around early 2024, but there may be some changes in its format.

The changes might affect the appearance of the selection, making it feel abit more like a concert, rather than a regular TV show. There are still things to be discussed  with RTÉ though. Regarding the selection procedure, Michael still thinks that some certain acts could directly take part in the televised show of the national final, same way as it happened this year with Wild Youth and Public Image Ltd.

This year Ireland participated at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 with “We are One” by Wild Youth and they got disqualified by the Grand Final, by placing 12th with a total of ten points.
