The show was no longer limited to solo singer-performers; entire bands could now enter. There were 3 semifinalists, the Henry Girls, Jade and Donna & Joseph McCaul. On March 6 2005 the McCauls topped the poll in the final, defeating the Kilmuckridge band, Jade. In Eurovision Song Contest 2005, the brother-and-sister act from Athlone will sing Love?
