Aly Ryan was one of the seven finalists of the German Eurovision selection “Unser Lied Für Israel”, and her entry “Wear Your Love” finished in 4th place (winning the vote of the Eurovision panel, finishing 5th with the international jury and 4th in televoting). She seems determined to enter next year’s Eurovision Song Contest, for any country except Germany.
In a series of Tweets, Aly stated that the only way she would enter Eurovision for Germany would be if she was chosen internally, and that due to the national final being “rigged” and the German national broadcaster being “corrupt”, she would not enter it again. In a couple of weeks’ time, Aly was busy recording various new songs, and admitted on Twitter that she sent five songs to the Swiss Eurovision selection (which happens behind closed doors). Later she also informed that she submitted a total of seven songs to San Marino‘s national broadcaster for their Eurovision consideration (the same five as to Switzerland, and two additional ones).
Now, after getting her DNA results through Ancestry, she found out that she is “partly Irish”, thus she has sent a couple of songs over to RTÉ in Ireland, for their consideration for Eurovision 2020.
In the replies on Twitter, when fans have been throwing around countries which may accept foreign authors and foreign artists in their Eurovision selections, Aly Ryan seems to be very open about sending a song anywhere – including Poland, the United Kingdom, Latvia, etc.
Aly Ryan really loves Eurovision, and she seems to be determined to step on the stage in Rotterdam next year. Check out her performance from the German final earlier this year, “Wear Your Love”.
