    Nicky Byrne on Eurovision: “The Stars Were Starting To Align”

    Eurovision added a video on YouTube where Nicky introduces himself and talks about joining the most popular song contest in the world.

    “When Westlife ended, I was presenting the radio show and I was also co-writing my first solo album. So we’re writing away, and in the meantime every year when Eurovision came around I was delivering the votes. You’re talking to the translator, two years, three years in a row she had said ‘You were on Westlife, would you not have a song? Would you not consider Eurovision?’ So the stars were starting to align a little bit. I know I have a song that I love, I know I have a song that people have said to me ‘That’s a really good song’. So I approached the guys and… Here we are.”

    Big Change to Eurovision Song Contest Voting

    The voting in the Eurovision Song Contest is set to be radically transformed this year.

    In previous years, the results of the professional juries and viewers have been presented as a combined result – each accounting for 50% of the final score. But from this year, the professional juries and televoters will each award a separate set of points – from 1 to 8, 10 and 12. This now means the top 10 countries in both the jury and televote will receive points, adding a new level to the show.

    After viewers have cast their votes by phone, text or through the official app, each national spokesperson from the 43 countries will be called in to present the points of their jury. Then after that presentation, the televoting points from will be combined – providing one score for each song. These televoting results will then be announced by the host, starting with the country receiving the fewest points from the public.

    For those wanting to know how their country has voted, the televoting and jury scores from each participating country will be available after the show on

    “This new way of presenting the votes is a big step forward, both to make a better television show as well as a more exciting competition,” said the EBU’s Jon Ola Sand, executive supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest. “There is more reason than ever to vote in the Eurovision Song Contest. The new voting format guarantees that the song which is most popular among the public will receive twelve points regardless of how the juries voted”.
