With almost 1 million people tuning into Dancing With The Stars Ireland at one point last week, Nicky expressed his happiness for working on one of RTÉ One’s biggest hits:
“I count my lucky stars every day, especially at the moment with the radio going so well and this show going so well. I had a couple of shows that didn’t take off. I needed this. I was delighted to get the chance and I really hope people are enjoying the show. I like to bring my own personality to it but at the end of the day it’s about the dancers.”
Having experienced what the contestants are going through, Nicky remembered what it was like to take part in Strictly Come Dancing back in 2012.
“You can’t even describe the nerves.The rehearsals is one thing but then when you get out there, your mouth dries up. I remember when I did Strictly, you just want to get through the dance. At that point you don’t even care what the judges say. You don’t want to let your partner down and as cliche as that sounds, it’s true.”
And speaking of competitions, Nicky didn’t rule out representing his country at Eurovision again someday, saying:
“It was an amazing experience and it is the biggest singing entertainment show in the world. I’ve no regrets, absolutely none. It was a decent performance but we just didn’t get it over the line. But never say never. It’s all about the right moment and the right song, but certainly in the next couple of years.”
