After a slow few days in the Eurovision birthday calendar, we are back with a bang today! No less than four Eurostars were born on this day, and we are of course here to congratulate all of them on their birthday! One of them is none other than the former boyband super star Nicky Byrne!
Burak Güven (Mor ve Ötesi), 43
Burak represented Turkey at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade. He did so as bass player and backing singer of Mor ve Ötesi. Their “Deli” is possibly the best rock entry in the last…I don’t know…sixtysome years (yeah, getting personal again; sorry, it just happens…). They finished in an ever so deserved 7th place, which regardless is approximately five or six places too far down on the scoreboard.
Nicky Byrne, 39
Nicky Byrne represented Ireland at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm. He performed the song “Sunlight”, finishing 15th in his semi-final, thus failing to reach the final.
Csezy represented Hungary at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade. She performed the song “Candlelight”, finishing last in the second semi-final. As a result of this she did not get to perform her song again in the final.
Sidsel Ben Semmane, 29
Sidsel represented Denmark at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest in Athens. There she performed the up-tempo song “Twist of Love”. Since Denmark finished in the top 10 in 2005, Sidsel was automatically qualified for the final, where she finished 18th out of 24.
