The Scoop

X Factor’s Sean and Conor Price “would consider” representing Ireland at Eurovision

The Irish brothers reached the latter stages of last year's "The X Factor UK"

Eurovision 2018 was a big success for Ireland as the seven-time Eurovision winning nation finally broken their run of four consecutive non-qualifications. It turns out sending a Ryan is the key for Ireland, with Ryan O’Shaughnessy’s qualification being Ireland’s first since Ryan Dolan in 2013. Now, with a taste of success once again, attention turns to who will represent Ireland in Israel next year? It seems Sean and Conor Price are potentially up for the opportunity…

“We’d consider it!”

In a recent interview on the Ray D’Arcy Show on RTÉ Radio 1, the duo was asked whether they had considered representing Ireland in “the biggest song contest of them all”, referring to their previous participation in The X Factor UK last year.

At the moment we’re just trying to establish ourselves over the next 12 months as artists and we’ll see what happens then if the opportunity arises. We’d consider it!

Pushing on with their career

The brothers are currently promoting their newest single Get Lost, their second release since they finished ninth on last year’s season of The X Factor UK. Indeed, the official music video for the track has amassed 70,000 views on YouTube since its release a couple of weeks ago.

Irish success in Lisbon

A couple of months ago, Ireland finished 16th in the grand final of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. As a result, Ryan O’Shaughnessy secured Ireland their best finish at the contest since Jedward’s eighth place finish with Lipstick back in 2011. Prior to the live semi-final, Together wasn’t fancied as a potential qualifier. Nevertheless, the beautiful performance resulted in Ireland leaping up the odds into the top three. While Ryan’s final result didn’t match up to the eventual hype in the betting odds, Ireland were surely pleased with their success in Portugal.
