After weeks of rumours, it’s finally been confirmed that Nicky Byrne will be representing Ireland at the Eurovision this year.
In a change to the past selection process, RTE opted to go straight to the man himself, instead of having the public voting system on Eurosong.
Speaking to RTE, Nicky said, “I’m absolutely over the moon. I really am. To be given the opportunity to represent our country is huge. I’m really looking forward to it.
Nicky will be singing , Sunlight, a song he co-wrote with Wayne Hector – a man who’s no stranger to penning songs for the former Westlife star.
Wayne has previously worked on a number of tracks for Nicky and his former band mates, including some of their hit singles, World of Our Own and Flying Without Wings.
“We have what we feel is a really catchy, kind of pop/soft rock song,” said Nicky.
He continued, “It isn’t a ballad, it’s a very up tempo song. It is very radio friendly.
“People will make their own minds up, but we really have given what we feel is our best chance, from our point of view.”
Well here’s the song below, what do you make of it?
