Eurovision is coming. The annual song contest that takes the European continent by storm may not be until the beginning of May, but competing countries have already started submitting the videos for their entries and a chance to perform in the live broadcast semi-finals.

For its part, Ireland has selected Ryan O’Shaughnessy’s “Together” as their official competition entry. The 25-year-old first wowed his country with his soft, soulful voice as a finalist on Britain’s Got Talent. In his video for “Together,” a gay couple dances through the streets, stealing touches and glances as the song tells the sad story of a fading relationship.

“It was amazing seeing the video come to life in the way it did, sticking with the original concept that love is universal and there are testing moments in every relationship,” O’Shaughnessy told Ireland’s RTE.

“Together” was chosen from a pool of more than 300 songs for this year’s Eurovision song contest, which will be held in Lisbon, Portugal. Notable past winners of the contest include ABBA, Celine Dion, and Conchita Wurst. Watch the video for “Together,” below.
