Christopher "Chris" Doran, (born 22 November 1979) from Waterford, Ireland was the winner of Ireland's You're A Star 2003-2004 talent search competition to find Ireland's Eurovision Song Contest entry. The competition held auditions throughout Ireland, and the winners went through to the final stages, with one act eventually decided on. The show was aired on RTÉ.

You're A Star
Chris Doran won the competition but there was controversy after Star Sunday revealed his song, "If My World Stopped Turning" written by Westlife's Brian McFadden, had been recorded by senior industry figures in the same studio used by Westlife and The Corrs. This was a contrast to the runner-up James Kilbane, whose track had been done "in house" by You're A Star's own as arranger. This led to a marked difference in the sound of both tracks.

Eurovision 2004
Doran represented Ireland in the 49th Eurovision Song Contest, in Istanbul, Turkey in May 2004, finishing 23rd out of 24 . He released two singles "If My World Stopped Turning" and "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You" over the following two years and continues to make special public and endorsement appearances (such as the opening of WLR FM and Beat 102-103's Broadcast Centre in Ardkeen, Waterford.)

WLR FM Sony Centre Star Search
He was on the judging panel for a reality talent show, entitled "Sony Centre Star Search", on Waterford's WLR FM in 2006.
