The Irish contestant delivers a high-energy pop performance at the Eurovision semifinals

Ireland’s Brooke Scullion has taken the stage to deliver an energetic performance in the second semi-final of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.

The country was among 18 countries competing Thursday night in Turin, Italy, where 10 acts will be voted through to the grand finale on Saturday.

The 23-year-old singer – who finished third on The Voice UK in 2020 with mentor Meghan Trainor – represented her country with her pop break-up track That’s Rich.

Scullion was dressed in a coordinated blue outfit as she opened her performance on a pink heart on stage before jumping up to perform an energetic routine accompanied by a group of dancers in the background.

Her performance was rewarded with thunderous applause from the audience.

Ahead of her performance, Scullion received congratulations from a number of famous faces including Trainor, Ronan Keating and Mika.

US singer-songwriter Trainor said: “Superstar Brooke, I love you, I miss you, good luck in the Eurovision Song Contest, you will kill.

“This is Rich is a blast have so much fun and remember how talented and awesome you are.”

Eurovision presenter Mika sent a video of him in a car dancing to her song.
