Nicky Byrne takes to the stage for his first Eurovision rehearsal

Nicky Byrne has arrived in Stockholm for all things Eurovision and today he took to the stage for his first rehearsal.

In typical Eurovision fashion, they didn’t hold back - it was all lights, camera, action, making Nicky look completely at home.

Well, this isn't the first time the 2FM DJ has graced this stage, as he has previously performed in The Golden Arena on numerous occasions as a part of Westlife.

It should be a breeze, Nicky - right? You've nothing to be nervous about.

“I always wanted to represent my country, I always wanted to fly the flag, I think everybody loves that part of the show,” he said to the Eurovision crew post rehearsals.

“I also think if you get that opportunity, it’s a huge honour for anybody

“I’ve been on rehearsals and I just love it, and I can’t wait to get out there.”

Do you think Nicky could take the crown?
