Former 'Pop Stars: The Rivals' contestant and West End actress / singer
When it comes to performing live on stage, Javine is certainly no stranger to the pressures involved. Having spent two years in the coveted role of 'Nala' in the West End production of 'The Lion King' and playing to packed houses every night, her skills were honed to perfection.
Armed with this invaluable experience she auditioned for and shot to fame on the ITV show Popstars: The Rivals. Proving hugely popular with viewers throughout the show's run, Javine made it to the last six girl singers. However, in a nail-biting final, Javine was not selected to be in the group that was to go on to become 'Girls Aloud'.
But the story did not end there and the initial disappointment of not making the band, has been well and truly forgotten as Javine has gone on to enjoy massive success as a solo artist in her own right.
Her debut single, 'Real Things' went straight into the charts at No 4, and featured on Richard X's critically acclaimed album with a cover of the Thelma Houston classic 'You Used To'. Javine has continued to feature in the charts with her most recent hit, Don't Walk Away garnering massive radio play.
With such an extensive and wide ranging portfolio of music, it comes as no surprise that this talented singer song writer could not pass up the opportunity to be part of such a huge music event.
'Music can be what ever you want it to be and to see all these different countries coming together on one night and hearing all their different influences is a great experience. Ultimately one country will win which brings intensity to the whole show. For my performance I will be singing and dancing to the best of my ability, I will be taking the audience on a fantastic ride!"
