Eurovision NI Awards 2017: Most Cringeworthy Act

There’s nothing worse when an act tries to be cool at Eurovision and falls flat on their face. Cringeworthy moments usually arise when there is naff staging, they choose a dated artist, when the cheese has been laid on a bit too thick, or the act/song/vocal/staging or all of the above is just downright bad. You watch these performers with your head in your hands and just want the world to swallow them up whole. Last year the gong was awarded to Frans. Here are the contenders for Most Cringeworthy Act at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017.

Review: Ireland- Brendan Murray ‘Dying to Try’

Ireland’s problem is that they just aren’t trying hard enough, they continually make the same mistakes year after year, have dated songs, delivered by average at best singers and put absolutely no effort into their staging.
