In other news.. tonight the Eurovision Song Contest’s 50th Anniversary show takes place.. for some reason *ahem* RTÉ are broadcasting live from Copenhagen.. [I blame Johnny Logan – Ed].

As RTÉ notes –
The Eurovision Song Contest stars, including Johnny Logan, Eimear Quinn, Linda Martin, Riverdance, The Olsen Brothers and pop celebrities like Ronan Keating will perform spectacular medleys of the most loved, most popular and most memorable moments from the Eurovision Song Contest.
Which Riverdance are performing, however, isn’t quite clear..
