European Eurovision viewers let their strong opinions be known on Ireland's Brooke Scullion as voting starts

By Cormac O'Shea

Viewers across Europe have hailed Brooke Scullion as terrific after her performance in Thursday night's semi-final.

The Derry girl had the crowd hopping for her performance of 'That's Rich' and even broke into some Ole's at the end of her routine.

Eighteen countries were performing on the night with Finland kicking things off with their song ‘Jezebel’.

Israel, Serbia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Malta, San Marino and Australia followed Cyprus to the stage just before Ireland.

We were tenth in the queue, ahead of North Macedonia, Estonia, Romania, Poland, Montenegro, Belgium, Sweden and Czech Republic.

And while voting hasn't been opened, at the time of writing, viewers across Europe were clear on social media that they thought Brooke deserved a place in the final.

One viewer said: "Well done Ireland, best song of the night by far."

Another said: "Awesome live, go girl, you ripped it up."

Another added: "Ireland have been my favourite so far it was everything."

Other labelled the Irish woman a "queen" and said she "slayed" her performance on the night - but will it be enough?

Ireland are currently 7/2 to qualify for the final with the bookies not thinking she's done enough to secure one of those coveted places.
