Ireland rocks at Eurovision. With seven wins since the birth of the most over-the-top singing contest, the country is actually the most successful at it. So, congrats...?
But Ireland has lost its Euro-mojo, as it's failed to reach the top five since 1997. Will this year's contestant Molly Sterling — at 16 years old, the youngest ever participant for Ireland — get the country back on track?
We're a little confused by the meaning of her song "Playing With Numbers" — and apparently so is she: "I was playing with the numbers and I didn't know what it meant." Come on Molly, TELL US WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN!
- The song is about an amnesic accountant;
- or about someone who bought a Euromillion ticket but then forgot;
- or about trying to become a math teacher in China;
- or about misplacing a large sum of money (which would coincidentally explain why Molly is now singing alone in a shitty warehouse).
