Nicki French: “My Name Is Going To Be The Countess AstraZeneca”

By Nick Day


Last week saw the return of the annual EuroStarz event, where 5 former Eurovision entrants took to the stage for the night to celebrate our favourite song contest. One of the acts to perform was the UK’s Nicki French.


Nicki French represented the United Kingdom at Eurovision in 2000 with the song “Don’t Play That Song Again”, placing 16th out of 24 with 28 points. Since then, she has a spree of releasing music and entertaining Eurovision fans at a number of Eurovision events. More recently, she has also been hosting the annual London Eurovision Party alongside Paddy O’Connell. She has also previously hosted EuroStarz, 5 years ago back in 2016.

ESCBubble were once again the proud media partners for the event and Joe got to speak to Nicki just before she performed where they discussed Bonnie Tyler, her amazing new panto nickname and how much Eurovision means to her 20 years on.


Check back with us all week as we have some amazing interviews with the other performing acts Ray Caruana, Eye Cue, Michael Rice and Niamh Kavanagh!
