The Irish representative for Eurovision 2018 Ryan O’Shaughnessy has caused some controversy with a tweet he published yesterday. The tweet in question claims that Russia have tried to ban the music video for his Eurovision song ‘Together’ due to its inclusion of two men dancing together.
Ireland chose Ryan O’Shaughnessy to represent them at Eurovision 2018 a few months ago, and with the EBU deadline for song submissions looming, this week RTE debuted the song he will sing at Lisbon in May. Listen to ‘Together’ below:

Junior Eurovision is basically Eurovision’s annoying little sister. The contest gives aspiring musicians under the age of 16 the chance to perform on one of the world’s biggest stages. This year sixteen nations will battle it out for the crown in Tbilisi’s Olympic Palace. The show will be presented by Helen Kalandadze and Lizi Japaridze and is the fifteenth edition of the contest.
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.
As well as honouring the best that Eurovision has given us in 2017, we also like to shame the very bad at the Eurovision NI Awards, to inspire countries to try that extra bit harder next year. Here are the nominees for Worst Song.

Douze, a new comedy musical about the wannabe stars trying to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest, will make its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this month.
