Ryan O'Shaughnessy will perform in Lisbon again on Saturday
Ireland has qualified for the Eurovision Song Contest final for the first time since 2013.
Tonight marked the first semi-final in Lisbon, with a second to take place on Thursday ahead of the main contest on Saturday night.
This year's Irish entry Together is performed by 25-year-old singer-songwriter Ryan O'Shaughnessy from Dublin.
He co-wrote the song alongside Mark Caplice and Laura Elizabeth Hughes.
Ten countries made the cut tonight - Austria, Estonia, Cyprus, Lithuania, Israel, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Albania, Finland and Ireland.
The successful countries from both semi-finals will join automatic qualifiers France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and hosts Portugal in the final.
Ireland last qualified for the final in 2013, and last won in 1996.
