We last got to chat with Brooke Scullion a few days before she performed at The Late Late Show and was selected to represent Ireland at Eurovision 2022 in Turin. A few weeks late, Rosie gets to chat with Brooke again to find out how much has changed since her victory! They discuss Brooke’s new-found recognition, her favourite other entries from this year so far, and maybe a hint or two about what we can expect from her performance in Turin…
Brooke hails from Bellaghy, County Londonderry, in Northern Ireland, and first rose to prominence when she competed in The Voice UK 2020. She was mentored by Meghan Trainor, and placed third in the competition. Since then, she released her first single, “Attention”, before her participation in The Late Late Show selection.
She will perform her Eurovision 2022 entry, “That’s Rich”, in the second half of the second semi-final on 12th May 2022.
Ireland’s Eurovision journey
In 1965, Ireland made their debut in the Eurovision Song Contest with Butch Moore and the song “Walking the Streets in the Rain”, which managed to place 6th. Since their debut, Ireland has participated 54 times (making the Grand Final 45 times), and has won the competition seven times, which is currently the record for most wins.
Ireland’s latest Eurovision participation saw them being represented by Lesley Roy, with the song “MAPS”. She placed 16th in the semi-final, receiving 20 points from the jury and televote.
