On today’s release of ‘Sunlight’, he called Jenny Greene on air, where he talked about how things have been going. He is very pleased and excited about tomorrow, but he’s nervous about neighbours and friends watching:
“It’s going to be good but it’s nerve-wrecking, there’s not doubt about it,” he said. “I’m doing an interview first, and then the song is, I believe, probably about 10 or 15 minutes later.” He later added, “The rehearsals are going really well so everybody’s really up for this. We’ve had a week of everything: from styling to vocal rehearsals… It’s a real, I would say, like a ‘pop-rock’ kind of group.”
When asked what he’s going to be wearing, he said “A very cool leather jacket and some nice black jeans with some nice cool biker boots.” Sounds fantastic! Hey, even cute little Gia got to say hi on the The Nicky Byrne Show this morning! She’s adorable 🙂 Listen back right here:
February 12th is a very big day because ‘Sunlight’ is finally available for download! It’s important that you spread the word and support Nicky so the song does well on its first and upcoming weeks! Can’t believe how long we’ve waited for this. Incredibly proud of Nicky! Here we go!
We’re only 2 days away from Nicky’s first live performance of “Sunlight” on The Ray D’Arcy Show! Nicky and his team have been rehearsing all week and creating the look and feel for the performance in Stockholm in May.
“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.” Nicky told RTÉ
The Ray D’Arcy Show starts at 22:05 on RTÉ One. It’ll be available for all viewers internationally on the RTÉ Player. They can watch on iOS with the Player International App, on Android with the Player App and on Desktop when they visit rte.ie/player. Viewers can download the app by clicking here!
Ray D’Arcy added: “We’re delighted to have Nicky in studio with us this Saturday. I’m a big fan of Eurovision and Nicky’s song. I’m looking forward to chatting with Nicky, meeting his band and hearing all about their preparations ahead of Stockholm. I wish them all the very best of luck.”
Nicky will release Sunlight everywhere on February 12th at 12am. Canada, USA and Mexico will have to wait until February 26th.
Back in Septmeber, Nicky recorded an episode of ITV’s The Chase with teammates: Amy Williams, Hairy Bikers Dave Myers and Natalie Cassidy. Some pictures were shared, but not the episode’s air date. Today, Joey Haines from The Booking Project confirmed to me that it’ll be broadcasted on Sunday, May 8th.
Last month, Nicky confirmed that he had a brand new record deal with Universal Music Ireland. Well, today will always be remembered since he officially signed it! He and the label shared pictures on Twitter of the very special moment:
Nicky is busy rehearsing for his performance on The Ray D’Arcy Show this Saturday, but great news were just released about ‘Sunlight’! Atlantic Radio UK posted their Request Chart of the week, and Nicky is No. 1 in the list!
This is fantastic, since it’s only been 2 weeks in the charts and it had debuted in No.4 last week! Well done, Nicky.
This is going to be a very exciting week because Nicky will be releasing his single ‘Sunlight’ on iTunes this Friday, Feb 12, and he’ll be performing it live as well!
He just tweeted a picture of him finding the perfect outfit 😉 But he did not mention what other TV Performances he’ll be having besides The Ray D’Arcy Show on Saturday, Feb 13th at 10:05PM IRE / UK Time. Stay tuned for more news!
