Eurovision 2022 week is upon us and Ireland will be cheering on the country's entry, Brooke Scullion, in the semi-final on Thursday, May 12.
Brooke had brought our first fabulous outfit of the day – an electric blue ensemble that includes hotpants with a chiffon overskirt. Chiily for Ireland, but perfect for Italy. #Eurovision— Eurovision Song Contest (@Eurovision) May 3, 2022
