Nikki Jamal one half of this year's winning act from Azerbaijan in the Eurovision Song Contest made a surprise appearance on ITV Loose Women show in the UK on Friday 20th May. She was invited by show presenter Denise Welch whom she had met in Dusseldorf, and found out whilst there that they both lived in Palmers Green in North London.
Nikki’s visit to the show on that day was however a surprise to Denise, and Nikki presented some flowers to her for her 53rd birthday this Sunday. Nikki now 30, speaking with her London Azeri accent said the reaction to Azerbaijan’s win in Baku had been crazy. She had expected France to win. Now she is doing lots of interviews and travelling. She was asked If the win would see her returning to live in Baku?. But this seemed not to be on the agenda as Nikki is happy living in London but travelling between the two countries every so often.
The big question was whether she and Eldar would stay together in future?. Casting doubt she said she didn’t know, they may record a few songs together but not more than that really. Closing the interview she said the after party was amazing, suddenly she was a “winner, superstar” rather than just a housewife in Palmers Green!!
