Visit official website of Mickey Harte - www.mickeyharte.com Picture and bio from there.

Mickey Harte (Michael Joseph Harte Esq.) is from Lifford, Co. Donegal and has never wanted much else than to fulfill his lifelong ambition to become a successful singer songwriter.

Influenced by Sting, Paul Brady, (Phil Coulter perhaps?) and other great songwriters, Mickey started his career with local band, Kryptic, at the age of 15. Mickey decided to go it alone a few years ago and he recorded his first solo demo in 2001 - Plugged Unplugged.

Now a full time musician, Mickey gigs regularly in Dublin and all over the country, both alone and with his band. Well used to the bright lights, Mickey has supported the likes of Jack L, Kieran Goss, The Four of Us, John Spillane and Aslan. He also traveled to the infamous Tin Pan South Festival in Nashville, Tennessee two years in a row and has toured extensively in Spain, Germany, Belgium and Holland. 

Mickey has become a household name of late since he entered RTE's search for a Eurovision contender, YOU'RE A STAR. Mickey's talent has won over the hearts and consciences of thousands of discerning TV viewers which has kept him consistently at the top of the voting polls.

Mickey begins a nationwide tour on 13 March 2003.
Микки Харт (Майкл Джозеф Харт, эсквайер) родом из Лиффорда, Донегал. Его мечтой всегда было лишь стать успешным певцом и автором.

Под влиянием творчества Стинга, Пола Брэди, Фила Колтера и других известных авторов, Микки начал свою карьеру с группой Криптик в возрасте 15 лет. Микки решил продолжать соло несколько лет назад....

"WE'VE GOT THE WORLD" - MICKEY HARTE
 (Written & composed by Keith Molloy & Martin Branagan)


She stands in the moonlight.
She touches her hair.
Her smile lights emotion and her love fills the air.
And I know you're my every tomorrow.
And I know that you'll always be there.
 
We've got the world tonight.
Lets hold on together.
And we've got a love that's right so open your heart.
'Cause we've got tonight.
 
We move even closer with hope in our eyes.
'Cause love is the answer to the hurt and the lies.
And I know you're my every tomorrow.
And I know that you'll always be there.
 
We've got the world tonight.
Lets hold on together.
And we've got a love that's right so open your heart
'Cause we've got the world tonight.
Lets hold on together.
And we got a love that's right.
So open your heart
 
Ask me why the sun and the moon go around.
Ask me why my feet never touch the ground.
Tell the truth, you take my breath away.
 
We've got the world tonight.
We've got the world tonight.
Lets hold on together.
And we got a love that's right so open your heart.
And we've got the world tonight
Lets hold on together
'Cause we've got tonight
"A BETTER PLAN" - SIMON CASEY
 (Written & composed by Bryan McFadden)

... in London, late October, ... in June in Herzegova,(?)
Both the same, both helpless as can be.
Now there's times I sit and wonder,

Why was your World torn asunder?
Why your cry never phases me?
Our beliefs and our decisions

Replace the thoughts for all those millions,
Who died on Earth not even knowing why
But we can make a difference if we all can begin

To look beyond the person's eyes and see who lies within
 
What is the colour of our skin?
Can we all shine from what's within?
Whether you're rich or poor I know for sure

That we all hold the cure.
Let us all join our hearts as one.
This is our future just begun
If we accept belief, avoid the grief and start it all again,

Well maybe we can find a better plan.
 
Money only changes image.
Fake belief, material finish.
Faith decides the value of your life.
'Cause I can be what you can be

If you can be what you believe in.
Our heart reflect the value of your life.
But we can make a difference if we all can begin

To look beyond the person's eyes and see who lies within.
 
What is the colour of our skin?
When we all shine from what's within.
Whether you're rich or poor I know for sure

That we all hold the cure.
Let us all join our hearts as one.
This is our future just begun.
If we accept belief, avoid the grief and start it all again,

Well maybe we can find a better plan.
 
I know that we can find a better plan
"I COULDN'T LOVE YOU MORE" - MICHAEL LEONARD
 (Written & composed by Ronan Keating, Brian Kennedy & Callum McCall)

 
I am here to hold you.
Let my thoughts surround you.
And I will send this ship to shore, I will calm the tide.
 
I couldn't love you more if I tried.
I couldn't write the words cause there are no lines.
If loving you is a crime then I'll do the time.
I couldn't love you more if I tried.
Baby if I tried.
 
Take my hand, walk with me
Let your spirit lift me.
And when you're weak I will be strong until the hurt is gone
 
I couldn't love you more if I tried.
I couldn't write the words cause there are no lines.
If loving you is a crime then I'll do the time.
I couldn't love you more if I tried.
Baby if I tried.
 
If I tried, If I tried.
 
I couldn't love you more if I tried.
I couldn't write the words cause there are no lines.
If loving you is a crime then I'll do the time.
I couldn't love you more if I tried.
 
I couldn't love you more if I tried.
I couldn't write the words cause there are no lines.
I couldn't love you more if I tried
"I'LL STILL BE RIGHT HERE" - LISA BRESNAN
 (Written & composed by Louise Wallace)
 
There you go running round, faster and faster.
It makes me dizzy to look at you.
Up and down, flying high, back and forward.
The speed of light has got nothing on you.
When the day comes round, when you go crashing down.
Oh no, there's no need to be frightened.
I'll still be right here.
 
I'll still be right here and there and everywhere.
You see scary monsters after you.
Take your tears to the sea of silence.
You've sunk so low the world's out of view.
However low you get, you haven't seen the last of me yet.
Oh no, there's no need to be frightened.
I'll still be right here.
 
When the day comes round, when you go crashing down.
Oh no, there's no need to be frightened.
I'll still be right here.

Full line-up/Полный список
Azi JegbefumeAzi Jegbefume, 18 years old girl from Dublin won first heat of Irish preselection show You're A Star.

All in all there will be 12 contestants in final, 9 winners of semi-final heats and 3 wild-card holders. The viewers will then get to vote off an act each week until the final winner is known.

Azi performed The Fugee's "Killing me Softly" and picked up the most votes from the public.
Avi lives at home with her family; she has one brother and one sister. Her parents are from Nigeria and moved here 20 years ago. She is currently studying to be a psychologist. She is no stranger to competition as she got to the last four in the presenter competition, 'Be the Face of MTV'. She also entered Fame Academy and got to the last 32 but the judges' felt she was unable to perform live. Azi is still angry and now more determined then ever to prove them wrong. She told to us: "
Yes, I'm really excited and I hope I go all the way to the Eurovision, I know I'll do Ireland proud and also I'll be Ireland's first black Eurovision entrant-!!how cool would that be!!!"
She has already represented Ireland as a junior sprinter at the Celtic Games and the Triple AAA.
18-летняя студентка из Дублина Ази Джегбефуме  выиграла первый раунд ирландского шоу Ты-звезда.
Всего в шоу будет 12 финалистов, 9 победителей отборочных раундов и 3 обладателя спец. приглашения. Затем телезрители каждую неделю будут убирать по одному исполнителю, пока не останется последний финалист, который и представит Ирландию на Евровидении.
Ази исполнила песню "Killing me softly" группы The Fugee's и набрала большинство голосов телезрителей. 
Она живет вместе со своей семьей, у нее есть брат и сестра. Ее родители родом из Нигерии и переехали в Ирландию 20 лет назад. Сейчас она учится на профессию психолога. Ей уже не впервой участвовать в такого рода соревнованиях, она уже попадала в 4-ку "Стань лицом МТВ", а также участвовала в Fame Academy, но судьи посчитали, что она недостаточно сильно поет вживую. Теперь Ази стремится доказать всем, что они были  неправы. В своей беседе с автором сайта Евровидение-Казахстан Ази сказала следующее: "Да, я очень рада и надеюсь, что на этот раз я смогу пройти весь путь до конца, Ирландия еще будет гордиться мной, и я как классно если я еще стану первым темнокожим участником Евровидения от Ирландии!"
Также Ази уже представляла Ирландию как член юношеской сборной команды по легкой атлетике (спринт).

22-летний Майкл Леонард, исполнивший песню группы REM "Everybody hurts" стал 2-м финалистом шоу.
У Майкла очень большая семья, 3 брата и 3 сестры.
Он работает музыкантом, и еще сам пишет песни, часто он запирается в своей комнате и размышлет над словами и мелодией записывая их на бумагу.
Он мечтает когда-нибудь стать супер звездой - миллиардером, чтобы женщины падали ему к ногам, а еще ему принадлежит рекорд (как он считает) - выпивание бутылки водки за 20 минут.
Catherine Yore performed Kate Bush's "The Power of Love" and became 3rd finalist of the show.

Catherine is studying teacher training in St. Pat's College in Drumcondra

Thirteen participants will enter the second phase of the contest with four from the wild card play off making the grade.

After the line up is known, each week viewers will have the chance to vote off one act each week until just one remains. This will be the Irish performer for 2003.

РТЕ решило дать каждому из 4-х судей дать возможность выбрать по 3 участника из  63 не попавших в финал. Телезрители  выберут из каждой тройки по одному финалисту, которые и присоединятся к ранее избранным девяти.

После того как все 13 конкурсантов станут известны, каждую неделю телезрители будут отсеивать одного участника. Победитель и будет представлять Ирландию на конкурсе Евровидение.

13.02.03 National finals

Small changes in announcement of results of weekly You're A Star show. Results of show aired at 8pm Sunday will now be announced at 8am Monday, but window for voting remain the same - hour between 9 till 10 pm Sunday. Last week about 650,000 viewers watched the show and about 330,000 votes were cast. It is rumoured that all this decisions are made to get rid of disagreeable candidates - duo of McElhinney twins. Each week panel of judges suggest to vote girls off but their appeals are met quite opposite by public. You can watch videos of the show at devoted.to/eurovision

Небольшие изменения в оглашении результатов шоу Ты-Звезда. Результаты шоу проходящего в 8 вечера воскресенья теперь будут объявляться в 8 утра понедельника, но промежуток для голосования остается старым - час с 9 до 10 вечера воскресенья. На прошлой неделе шоу посмотрели 650 тысяч телезрителей, а количество голосов превысило 330 тысяч. Говорят, что все эти меры принимаются для того, чтобы избавится от неугодных кандидатур, дуэта МакЭлхинни, против которых судьи призывают голосовать после каждой передачи, однако пока эти призывы имеют скорее обратное действие. Видео шоу вы можете посмотреть на сайте devoted.to/eurovision
