4. Nikki Kavanagh – Memories
This song has five authors: Lee Anna James from Nashville, Elena Morosanu from Romania and three from Sweden – Simon Gribbe, Johnny Sanchez and Dimitri Stassos.
Dimitri was co-writer of the music for La noche es para mí, performed by Soraya in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, as well as the song Aphrodisiac, performed by Eleftheria Eleftheriou, which represented Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku.
Nikki is a professional singer with a long biography. She got to boot camp in 2006 series of X-Factor UK. Simon Cowell said that she was a sexy lady with a voice to match. She has been backing vocalist for many of the biggest names in the music industry including Debbie Harry and Dannii Minogue. She is a keen golfer and even presents a successful show on the UK’s Sky Sports Channel. Many will remember her in Eurovision in 2010 as she was part of Niamh Kavanagh’s team. In 2011 she just lost out to Jedward so maybe this will be her lucky year.
