Sofa Watch: Eurosong 2022 takes over the Late Late Show

All you need to know about your chat show options tonight.

EVENINGS ARE SLOWLY but surely getting longer, and Friday nights are a little bit brighter than they were in previous weeks and months

With bright evenings rolling back around, it might be a nice chance to put your feet up and relax with some light entertainment and chat shows, so here’s what you need to know for tonight.

  •  The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, 9.35pm

It’s not just any old Late Late Show this week, with the programme set to host a Eurosong 2022 Special for the first time in seven years.

Six Eurovision hopefuls are set to appear this evening, seeking a chance to represent Ireland at the 2022 Eurovision in Italy.

Eurovision stalwart, Marty Whelan will be on hand to act as the show’s Green Room correspondent, speaking with upcoming acts backstage throughout the night.

RTÉ put out a call last Autumn for artists and songwriters, with a final six songs being chosen from over 300 entries. 

The overall winner will be chosen through a combined vote, which is made up of the public vote, an international jury and a studio jury.

A special interval performance from Riverdance is also set to be held on the night.
