As we gear up for Nicky Byrne's Eurovision performance next week, the nostalgia for previous wins is at an all time high.

Cue the arrival of former winner Linda Martin on the Late Late Show to perform a remix of her winning 1992 song 'Why Me?'.

Linda (69) looked sensational as she belted out an up tempo version of the ballad, surrounded by gyrating male dancers, and against a backdrop of floor to ceiling images of herself in the 90s.

There was a glow stick for everyone in the audience and they waved them enthusiastically throughout Linda's energetic performance.

Predictably, reaction on Twitter ranged from affection and admiration to bemusement.

"In fairness to Linda Martin she's looking amazing on @RTELateLateShow" wrote one viewer.

Another was less impressed, "I'm not watching Linda Martin on the Late Late Show, I want Hell to be a surprise when I get there. #latelate #LindaMartin"
