Westlife star turned radio DJ, Nicky Byrne will reportedly be representing Ireland in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

The 37-year-old dad of three will be taking to the stage at Stockholm’s Globe Arena this May.

“Most people will be shocked as he was never the strongest singer in the band but he’s a great performer, he has good stage presence and he’s very likeable so who knows,” a source told the Irish Mirror.

“It’s just crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s at this stage but Nicky looks set to following in Jedward’s footsteps and singing at the Eurovision.

“Shane and Mark have their record deals and their albums so maybe the Eurovision could relaunch Nicky’s pop career.”
