Linda Martin is a head case and has never got over the fact that Ireland sent her half brother Dustin to the Eurovision instead of her one year…

Linda Martin last night described Aslan’s Billy McGuinness as “an odious little man”.

    Mutton dressed as lamb. On a side note, who actually cares about the European song contest?

    Every real songwriter in the country knows the Irish Euro song process is a fix, that’s why the best songwriters don’t enter. Billy said nothing most people don’t know already, he was right to stand up to that idiot Martin who in fairness is a nobody anyway, and shouldn’t be on the panel because she knows little or nothing about the modern music world.

    She is a bully. There was a program a few years back, cant rememebr the name of it where she was on a selection panel with Brendan O Connor. It was a singing thingy on RTE. Anyone remember it?? Well on night it was a slow night, they were not having much luck where they were judging. A guy came on, big bald older man with a guitar that played a snow patrol song and played and sang brilliantly!!! At the end of the song, “linda with her vast knowledge and experience”, turned to the man and told him that he was not what they were looking for based on his appearence!!! Brendan OConnor ate her alive and walked out. This was only a small incident, but it stuck in my head to how arrogant, stuck up and degrading she is. Why she has any following at all is byond me. She needs to be put off irish television and raido. We need to stop wasting money on washed up old idiots like this.

    Sean was it You A Star?? I actually remember that incident well. She never comes out of these things well because she comes across as bitter and utterly mean-spirited. She did her country proud once but now she only does herself harm. The only one happy today us Tubridy.

    Chris, I love the Eurovision, I will freely admit. It’s great fun to watch every year, even if Ireland doesn’t do well.

    However, I completely agree with the comments about Linda Martin. Someone please please get her off Irish television. She won the Eurovision back in the early 90′s. Wonderful, fair play to her, but that’s it. There are plenty of modern-day Irish musicians that would do a better job on shows like this one.

    I can still remember an episode of you’re a star where Linda Martin berated a contestant for his awful guitar playing. He was playing a Beatles song and the guitar was just for show… she was criticising the Beatles.

    Thats the problem Ireland keeps harping back to past Eurovision victories. Now the Eurovision is dominated by east European countries and the songs reflect this. Ireland needs to keep up with the times if they ever want to be in the running. I have heard nicer song sung at funerals and better performed.

    RTE should get someone else to host the Eurovision. Sick listening to Marty Whelan for years. Linda Martin should stay away altogether. Both of them brings bad luck upon the whole thing. The wining song is fantastic, let’s hope she does well.

    Eurotrash crap contest! Obvious fix. Usual shite. What Billy said was right. What an effing shower. I thought Martin was a drag queen when I saw the clip. What an old weapon!
    Marty-bloody-Whelan is still wrecking Lyric FM every week day morning from 7- 10 am. RTE just doesn’t have a clue.

    You’re recollection is wrong. What actually happened was when the guy walked in before he even sang Linda said there was no point as it was the wrong ‘image’.
    BOC rightly kicked up a stink and I dusted the guy should sing. He then went onto nail radiohead ‘high and dry ‘
