McTernan was a guest on the Ray D'Arcy Show on RTÉ Radio 1 on Friday and said she would "be like a child on Christmas morning" when she flies out to the Eurovision on Sunday.
"Tell us about the staging of the song," asked the host.
"So, drum roll," McTernan replied. "Everyone's been so excited about the staging, but I haven't been allowed say anything!"
"We're going to go with the 'Fifties diner vibe'," she continued.
"I've got two amazing dancers. We've Adele Dempsey; she's got a dance academy in Leixlip and she's in the pantomimes. She's just incredible. Then we've Rhianna Binns; she's five-time Irish dancing champion."
Before singing 22 in studio, McTernan promised Eurovision fans that they would be seeing a "real poppy, real fun, real colourful" performance in the second semi-final in Tel Aviv on Thursday, May 16.
Also joining McTernan and her dancers onstage on the night will be backing vocalists Fiona Harte, Michael Hopkins and Ciara O'Connor.
