Eurovision 2014With just a couple of months remaining in 2013, the search has already begun in countries around Europe for entries for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Denmark.

Among those vying for a slot in the final is IMRO member, Chris Erhardt, a 26-year-old German songwriter and producer based in Dublin, who is hoping to have his song, “Butterflies”, selected as the Swiss entry. Having worked with various artists throughout Germany, UK, Ireland and the USA throughout his career, Chris has teamed up with London singer and songwriter, AJ Lewis, for their mid-tempo ballad entry. Voting begins in Switzerland on 4th November.

Meanwhile at home, RTÉ have just revealed the Eurosong 2014 mentors. The five mentors who will be sourcing songs and singers to represent Ireland at the contest next May are Aslan guitarist Billy McGuinness, singer and songwriter Hazel Kaneswaran, RTÉ 2fm presenter and Kerbdog frontman Cormac Battle, band manager Valerie Roe and tour manager Mark Murphy.

The Semi-Finals of the 59th Eurovision Song Contest are set to take place on Tuesday May 6 and Thursday May 8 in Copenhagen. The Final is scheduled for Saturday, May 10.
