Northern Irish Eurovision Song Contest winner Linda Martin has thrown her weight behind a growing campaign to bring the event to Belfast next year, saying the city is “perfectly placed” to host it.

The Belfast-born singer, who won the competition in 1992 with the Johnny Logan-penned entry Why Me?, said Belfast would be a “fantastic” choice to stage the massive event and a “wonderful opportunity” to showcase the city and the North as a whole to millions of viewers in more than 40 participating countries.
