Nicki French, who represented the United Kingdom in 2000, has been back in the recording studio with composer, producer John Springate to record some Eurovision songs, including an updated version of her own entry Don't play that song again.
To co-incide with this year's contest, singer Nicki French has released a collection of past Eurovision songs including a 2004 dance version of her own entry Don't play that song again. Her original version finished 16th for the UK in the 2000 Eurovision Song Contest, which at the time was the worst result the UK had achieved, until Jemini came along in 2003!
Other songs recorded are her versions of Ding dinge dong, the Dutch winner from 1975, One step further, the UK entry fom 1982 and finally Hold me now, the Irish winner from 1987.
Nicki French is not the only artist to have recorded a version of Hold me now, as Chris Doran, representing Ireland in this year's contest, has released a live version on his single of this year's entry If my world stops turning.
