Nigar Jamal—that’s Nikki to all of you Eurovision fans—knows what it’s like to win a singing contest. Her joy after winning Eurovision 2011 remains one of our favourite moments in recent ESC history. Since then she’s released a few singles, danced with wiwibloggers at the London Eurovision Party, and looked amazing doing it. Well now she’s turning her talents to helping nurture a new generation of pop stars as a jury member on X Factor Türkiye!
A trailer for this year’s series has just been released, and it shows Nikki working a red dress as she says, “A different concept every week!” Among the other judges is Atiye, the German-born Turkish singer who is one of the country’s biggest stars.
