Johnny Logan responds to Louis Walsh’s invitation
IRELAND – Louis Walsh, the mentor who suggested Brendan Murray to RTÉ for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest invited Johnny Logan to compose the Irish entry for Kyiv.
He knows the formula and what works – There is no one out there better than him who knows how to win. I would Love if Johnny Logan would write a song for us. That would be great. If he doesn’t. I will get one from England from a great songwriter. I am confident about that.
He also threw stones on how Ireland is adopting Eurovision nowadays.
Everyone wants to make it the easy way now by going on The X factor or The Voice. They don’t realise there is no easy way of becoming great. I know I am contradicting myself a bit, because I am a part of that machine, creating monsters and making people famous. But the problem is when they leave the show and start to believe the hype, and they are surrounded by ‘yes’ people who gravitate towards them and they end up ruining them. The X-Factor gives you a shot, but it is up to you to work hard and try to make the best of that shot.
Johnny Logan’s manager responded to his invitation
Johnny Logan is a very active artist with five scheduled concerts before the Eurovision Song COntest 2017. In case Johnny Logan agrees to that (to compose the Irish entry), he should work along with his planned projects.
Hint for asking good compensation for doing it, maybe?
