After being cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, the Eurovision Song Contest is back with a bang.
Ireland's entrant Lesley Roy takes to the stage in the first semi-final in Rotterdam on Tuesday night, with the hopes of securing a place in the grand final on Saturday.
Lesley will perform seventh with her song, 'Maps'. The video on YouTube has ratcheted up over one million views.
Eurovision expert Garrett Mulhall told Newstalk Breakfast Ireland is facing some tough competition.
"This is actually going to be the semi-final of death, because there are so many songs in there that you could make a strong case for all of them to actually qualify.
"We're up against the big favourite for the entire contest - which is from Malta - a singer called Destiny with a song called 'Je Me Casse'.
"Think 'All The Single Ladies' from Beyoncé, she's that good, and she's amazing."
And Garrett explained what we can expect from Lesley tonight.
"It's been going down really well with the journalists in the stadium all week, where she's been rehearsing.
"Lesley is set inside a giant pop-up book.... and she actually spends most of the song running on a travellator.
"She's got a strong chance of qualifying for the final; and if she did, I think it would go down really well with people across Europe - both the juries and the public."
But Garrett added: "If you're looking for a sneaky, dark horse which I think could win the competition? It could be Italy.
"They have an amazing rock song this year, which is going to blow people's minds.
"It's totally not what you expect from Eurovision, it's glam-rock.
"Think back to the 1970s and wait till you see their skin-tight, pleather outfits which they're going to have on the stage".
Speaking to Newstalk back in February, Lesley said she really wanted to finish what she started.
"I am extremely excited about this song... I had a lot of anxiety going in to try and top one of my catchiest songs that I'd written in a long time".
"I worked for months on this - I am so, so pumped for everyone in Ireland to hear it".
She said the hardship of the last year had made this extra special.
"Because of the heartbreak of last year, and the amount of work now that has gone into both songs and our team were so exited and ready to get there, I can't even express in words.
"It was exciting last year to try and do it, but this year I think I just really want to get there and finish out this project that I started - and just really sing for Ireland.
"It sounds cheesy, but I feel it so much more this year and I'm so excited to get there".
Ireland first entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 1965.
We famously won four out of five contests in the 1990s, and became the first country to win three times in a row.
Ireland has won the Eurovision a record seven times in total - having only missed the contest twice, in 1983 and 2002.
While Canadian singer Céline Dion shot to international stardom after winning the 1988 contest for Switzerland in Dublin.
