Everyone's favourite winning Irish Eurovision song got an airing on Friday's Late Late Show.

With Ryan O'Shaughnessy gearing up to perform Together at the first Eurovision semi-final in Lisbon on Tuesday night, the show featured a segment dedicated to the contest.

Paul Harrington and Charlie McGettigan allowed us to relive our memories of the 1994 victory as they once again took to the piano and guitar for Rock n Roll Kids.

Viewers were thrilled.

It was, in fact, part of a Eurovision medley and soon Linda Martin joined them to perform her winning song, Why Me?, followed not by another Irish winning song, but by Abba's Waterloo, perhaps to raise the tempo a little.

Abba delighted the clapping audience and one particular women in a red top very, very much indeed.

Viewers, not so much.

Also on last night's show there was a Eurovision Spin and Sing game with Paul Harrington, Linda Martin, Jake Carter, Rory Cowan, Ronan Johnston and Emma O'Driscoll giving Johnny Logan's Hold Me Now an airing.

There was lots of arm waving to 'Hold Me Now'...
