It’s time for Part 2 of Nicky’s Behind The Scenes videos in Stockholm for Eurovision! Here we have a better look at what happens backstage and on the actual stage during rehearsals. Doesn’t it look incredible? And wait ’till the very end… Fave part! 😉
Tonight is the Official Opening Ceremony of Eurovision 2016 at Stockholm’s City Hall. Prior to that, a red Red Carpet event took place for press and fans, outside EuroClub. Here are all the updates!
A couple videos/interviews of Nicky while walking on the red carpet (including a very sweet one with a fan):

Nicky recently sat with The Weekend Magazine to reflect on his life and share some lessons he’s had along the way. It’s a very nice article, and it only makes me a prouder fan, so definitely check it out!
Massive thank you Kian Egan Web for sending the scans – click no them to full feature. Here are some of the highlights:
Nicky on his Family and becoming a dad.
“A young man always hopes that he’ll be lucky enough to become a dad. It was life-changing for me and I love it. I was always responsible, but we suddenly had to put the kids before ourselves and everything became about them.”
Nicky on his Football days.
“Playing football for Ireland as a teenager was amazing and it taught me an awful lot. You have to learn to lose as well as win. Everyone threw a big going-away party for me when I signed for Leeds United as a teenager, but I was back home within three years and I felt like a failure. That was probably one of the biggest challenges I’ve had in life.”
Nicky on what his parents taught him.
My dad taught me always to concentrate on the things you love. He told me to be honest with him and he would always have my back, and never to bring the Gardaí to the door. He also taught me that everything is mind over matter. My mam, Yvonne, taught me to be a human being and a gentleman. My sister Gillian, brother Adam and I were brought up in a very loving environment, and hopefully we have all served our parents well.

Nicky filmed an episode of ITV’s The Chase last year, and it finally aired tonight! He has the best sense of humour and it really shows here. Watch all his bits!

After rehearsals, Nicky went straight to a press conference with Team Ireland. He mentioned how his former Westlife bandmates have been so supportive of him on representing Ireland at Eurovision, and how Shane and Mark have give some nice tips! Also, my condolences go to Paul, Nicky’s drummer, on his dad passing away recently. Watch the full video below:
Here are more interviews with Nicky:

We had been waiting for it for week, and finally… Here it is! Eurovision Ireland‘s Interview with Nicky. Remember how they had been asking fans to send them questions for him? Well, so many were sent that the video ended up being almost 40 minutes long! So sit back and enjoy what is one of my favourites interviews yet!
It’s always nice to have some Behind The Scenes videos, and apparently we’ll be getting more in the next few days! Here is the first one where we can see Nicky leaving the Dublin Airport and arriving to Stockholm for Eurovision. Must’ve been amazing to be there and wish him well on his trip to the Song Contest. 🙂
While in Stockholm, Nicky took the time to answer some ‘This or That’ Questions during one of his interviews. Gotta say that I always love these!
