Ever since we listened to Nicky’s debut single, ‘Sunlight’ and news came out about him representing Ireland at Eurovision, back in Janurary, we’ve been waiting for the day we’d get to see him compete at the song contest and perform at the Globe Arena. Well… That day is finally here! Tonight at 9:00pm CET (8:00pm UK time) the 2nd Eurovision Semi-Finals will take place and Europe will have the chance to vote for their favourite country.
It’s all been building up to this moment, so it’s super important that we step it up and vote, vote, vote! What do I mean by vote? Get all of our friends and family to help us as well. Here’s how it’s going to go down:
