Ronan raises eyebrows again with his entry for Denmark's Eurosong

Boyzone's Ronan Keating has entered Denmark's Eurosong contest for the second time.

The Dublin singer raised eyebrows this time last year when it emerged that he had used his song-writing talents to enter the Scandinavian country's version of Eurosong.

The Danish public voted his entry, Believe Again, as the nation's representative through the show Dansk Melodi Grand Prix last January.

The song reached 13th place at the annual cheesy contest, which took place in Moscow.

Ireland meanwhile, was represented by singer Sinead Mulvey and her band Black Daisy who performed Et Cetera, but failed to make it past the semi-final stage.

Ronan has again collaborated with Lars Halvor and Martin Larsson, this time to compose the song, All About A Girl.

This year's song will be performed by Joakim Tranberg, a well known Danish actor.

However, Ronan will not be in attendance at the event on February 6, given that he yesterday jetted off to the other side of the world, where he is due to spend the next month touring Australia and New Zealand. The dad-of-three will kick off the tour next Saturday in Perth.

RTE have already begun calling for entries for this year's Eurosong contest 2010, to take place on a Late Late Show special in early March. Five songs will compete to decide Ireland's Eurovision entry for the 55th annual contest, which will this year take place in Oslo.
