Welcome to the Persephone ESC Countdown. Ireland and Israel are up next.
Ireland is sending Jedward into the race this year. The identical twins John and Edward had some major success over the last year and will perform their song “Lipstick.”
Dana International, the winner of 1998 is back and will represent Israel with the song “Ding Dong.”

I do have a soft spot for Jedward, bless their little cotton socks.
I thought all the participating countries were European?
Israel is in the European broadcasting network (association? I’m not sure how it called) so that why it’s in.
Come on ye good things, Jedward!!!!!!!!
I will be doing the traditional Irish-person-in-the-UK thing and voting for our lads, obviously.
Woooo Ireland! Gotta root for my ancestral home. :)
Ah, Jedward. Mad as a box of frogs, the both of them.
