Simon Casey finally got his big break by being in the right place at the right time. From Ballycumber, Co. Offaly, Ireland. Few people could have predicted that the contest to find an Irish representative for the 2003 Eurovision Song Contest would turn out to be one of the most popular TV shows ever in Ireland. Simon performed live on You’re a Star every Sunday night and his resulting high profile on prime time TV has given him the status of a superstar in Ireland. He eventually finished the contest as runner up to Mickey Harte who went on to represent Ireland at Eurovision.
