Ireland: Nicky Byrne to Perform “Sunlight” Live


Nicky Byrne small IrelandIreland – Earlier this year Ireland and RTE announced that they internally selected Westlife Star Nicky Byrne who will be flying the Irish Flag in Stockholm in May with his song “Sunlight”. Tonight Nicky will perform the song  live fir the first time on the Ray D’Arcy Show

Nicky and his team have been rehearsing all week in the hopes to present the feel and look they wish to achieve at the Contest and he had this to say about it

“We’ve been working really hard in rehearsals over the past few weeks and I can’t wait to perform in front of Ray’s live studio audience and everyone watching at home. I’m so thrilled to be representing Ireland at Eurovision in Stockholm this year. I’m looking forward to seeing how people react to the song – the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive and the good luck wishes have been flooding in.” (Source eurovision.tv)

Nicky has been working with former Syco Creative Director Tim Byrne who has worked on the British reality shows The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent to put the performance together.

The song has shown itself to be popular within the Eurovision Fandom but this live performance will make or break people’s opinion on the song so pressure is on. You can watch the show tonight at on the official RTE website as it starts at 23:05CET (22:05GMT)

  1. Nicky was always so easily my favourite Westlife. I’m afraid I’m a bit of afraid here now. After all he was just a very good looking back up singer. Not that there is nothing wrong with being a very good looking back up singer, but with mediocre song and fading good looks your only real hope is stellar vocals.
    Please Nicky, prove me wrong for the old times sake!

  2. Backing singer that is. LOL I don’t think he was back up singer for Shane.

  3. Will there be any articles for tonight’s shows ?? It’s A Super Saturday and 10 shows are taking place ! :)

  4. Westlife was way before my time, and I’ve never even heard of them until Nicky Byrne was announced as the entrant. I don’t like his song and I can’t see it reaching my Top 30.
