After a disappointing 21st placing in the 2001 contest, Ireland was relegated from the 2002 contest. For the 2003 contest in Riga, Ireland abandoned the "National Song Contest" format, and set up a reality show called You're A Star. The winner was Mickey Joe Harte, with the song We've Got The World.

At Eurovision[edit]

At the contest, Harte performed 3rd on the night and came joint 11th with Germany, guaranteeing Ireland a place in the final of the 2004 contest.
