Eurovision, Westlife and Sunlight – Ireland’s Nicky Byrne catches up with GT

“It would be great, genuinely brilliant, if we could qualify.”

Former Westlife band member Nicky Byrne is proudly representing Ireland at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, and he’s ready and raring to go.

His song, Sunlight, looks like it could have the power to propel Ireland out of qualifications and onto the main stage of the competition – where they most certainly belong.

We managed to grab a few minutes with Nicky at London’s superb Eurovision Party to chat about the prospects of qualifying, what we can expect to see on stage and the possibility of a Westlife reunion.

@robagain and @jrawson will be reporting from Stockholm for Gay Times magazine throughout May.

Thanks to London Eurovision Party and Café de Paris.
