"Et Cetera" is a song by Irish singer Sinéad Mulvey and rock band Black Daisy that represented Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 in Moscow, Russia. The song was composed by a multinational songwriting team of Niall Mooney of Ireland, Jonas Gladnikoff of Sweden, Daniele Moretti of Italy and Christina Schilling of Denmark.[1][2]

The song competed in the second semi-final on 14 May 2009 but failed to qualify for the final, making it the second time in a row and the third time in 5 years the nation failed to make it to the final.

It was chosen on 20 February 2009 as part of a special edition of chat show The Late Late Show which had Jerry Springer, Marty Whelan and Linda Martin reviewing the six entries competing to go to Moscow. It won with 78 points from a possible 80, awarded in two phases, phase one by national juries and phase two by the viewers.

The song was released as a single by Sony BMG on 1 May in Ireland, as both a physical CD single and as a digital download.[3] It debuted on the Irish charts at #15 and peaked at #6.[4]
