There were many attempts by both the contestants and the organisers of this years Rose of Tralee to modernize the competition (allowing that horrible proposal which they knew would go viral to happen being one of them). Rose's sang, rapped and did stand-up comedy this year much to the shock and horror of most watching at home and online, but one of the biggest clunkers came from the winning Texas Rose Haley O'Sullivan, who decided a Harlem Shake was the way to bring the 54 year old festival into the 2010s (albeit 6 months too late).

Although we will admit she's a very lovely girl. But aren't they all lovely girls.
