Molly Sterling may not have made it through to the Eurovision final for Ireland, but she's staying put in Vienna to show her support for Norway in the final.

Molly (17) met Norwegian representatives Mørland and Debrah Scarlett at the State Opera this week and she's backing them in the final.

"It's such a beautiful, classy song - I hope it does really well" she said.

However, she is also a big fan of the Swedish entry having met Mans Zelmerlow at the opening party in City Hall and the Irish contingent, including Molly, apparently found themselves dancing to the upbeat Israeli entry in the green room last night.

The second Eurovision semi-final was watched by 346,000 people on RTE2 as Molly made her bid for a spot in the final.

Although she didn't make it through with the song, Playing by Numbers, she is now focused on working on an album.

"I've had the time of my life," she said. "To be in the final would have been a bonus but the Eurovision is a bit of a lottery so you just never know how it’s going to go.

"Representing my country has been a privilege and I hope I did everyone proud. I have had to pinch myself every day that I’ve been part of something so amazing. It will probably only really hit me when I get home."

Molly thanked everyone for their support and added, "Myself and Greg French are going to focus now on working on the album, which will be coming out in the autumn."

The Eurovision final airs on RTÉ One this Saturday at 8pm.
