IRELAND’s Ryan Dolan will perform last in tomorrow night’s (May 18) Eurovision Grand final in Malmo, Sweden.

Strabane-born Dolan progressed to the final following Tuesday night’s first semi-final which saw him book his place in the final with his song, Only Love Survives.

More music:

Relaxed ahead of the show he said: “Sometimes it all still feels very surreal! I’m heading over to the hotel that the Swedish delegation are staying in tonight to meet Robin. We’re going to watch the first half of the semi-final together.

“Then I’m heading back over to the arena for an interview with Scott Mills and Ana Matronic from Scissor Sisters for BBC3.”
