Israel's Netta gearing up for Eurovision semi-final

Ireland's Ryan O'Shaughnessy is through to this year's Eurovision Song Contest Final, booking our place as one of Tuesday night's ten qualifying countries with the song Together. He will compete with singers from Azerbaijan, Iceland, Albania, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Israel, Estonia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Croatia, Austria, Greece, Finland, Armenia, Switzerland, Ireland, and Cyprus.

The Eurovision Song Contest final takes place on Saturday 12 May.

Sevak Khanagyan represents Armenia with the song "Qami" (Wind).

Given that Ireland hasn't exactly impressed at the Eurovision in recent years, people are genuinely over the moon and many shared their joy on Twitter. Last year's winners Portugal also do not have to qualify via the semis.

Viewers in the United Kingdom will be able to vote for their favourite song in the first semi-final after the final act has finished performing.

The result was made up of 50 per cent televoting by country and 50 per cent jury votes by country.
