Nikki Kavanagh has confirmed that she is in the hunt to represent Ireland at Eurovision 2015 in Vienna.
We can reveal that Nikki has entered TWO songs into the Irish selection for 2015 and furthermore she is one of the songwriters too.
Nikki came close to representing Ireland at Eurovision in 2011 when she lost out to Jedward’s ‘Lipstick’ by 2 points. Her song ‘Falling’ is a favourite at the Irish Eurovision parties.
Nikki was a backing vocalist for Niamh Kavanagh in Oslo at Eurovision 2010 when Ireland made the final with the song ‘It’s for you’
Nikki also narrowly missed out on being a Eurosong finalist in 2008 with the amazing song ‘Destiny’. That year Ireland sent Dustin the Turkey to Eurovision. A missed opportunity there by the selection panel!
Nikki has provided backing vocals in the Irish National final over the past few years. Speaking to us here at Eurovision Ireland Nikki said
“Everyone knows that I love Eurovision and it is my dream to represent my country at the contest. Being in Oslo was a wonderful experience and now I just feel it is the right time to try again”
Two songs from Nikki sent in for selection – we are very happy at that news!
So the Irish National selection is hotting up with more names expressing their interest in this years contest.
Who would you like to see in the Irish National Selection?
