Ryan O'Shaughnessy says he has put in the hard work ahead of his Eurovision semi-final performance this evening.
The Dubliner will aim to become the first Irish singer to qualify for the final since 2013.
O'Shaughnessy will perform a song he co-wrote entitled 'Together' to hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
Ryan says he won't be daunted singing to such a large audience:
"Hasn't really dawned on me just yet," he said.
"I think we're well prepared. We've done so much rehearsing and all the work has gone in over the last few months.
