Nadine Elizabeth Louise Coyle (born June 15, 1985 in Derry City, County Derry, Northern Ireland) is a singer in the all-girl group Girls Aloud.
A native of Derry City, Nadine first found fame in 2001 when, while still at school, she entered the Irish version of the talent show Popstars. As one of the winners of the show, Nadine was selected to become a member of the band Six. Shortly after the band was formed, the bandmates moved into a house together and all were interviewed on camera. Nadine gave a string of information about herself, but then stopped suddenly and whispered "What date of birth did I give...?". She initially maintained that she had simply made a mistake when stating her birthday, but later broke down off camera and admitted that she had lied about her age, and was in fact only 16 years old. As the minimum age stipulated by the producers was 18, she had to be dropped from the band.
In 2002 Nadine returned to enter the UK talent show Popstars: The Rivals. She polled the third highest number of votes in the final, and was chosen to join the band Girls Aloud. During the series she had been a hot favourite to make the band, especially after a stunning rendition of Fields Of Gold, which many believe was the performance of the series. She also sang Show Me Heaven, When I Fall In Love and I Wanna Dance With Somebody, regularly receiving some of the highest vote tallies. When asked to name a highlight from the show, presenter Davina McCall simply answered "Nadine."
With Girls Aloud she has scored a string of top 5 singles and two platinum albums, and is often seen as "the voice" of the band. Nadine showed off her amazing vocal talent whilst on tour with her bandmates in May and June 2005. Her good looks have seen her in FHM's "100 Sexiest Females" list for the past three years, with her renowned long legs receiving much male attention.
Before hitting the big time, Nadine recorded a demo CD which was distributed to Louis Walsh (now co-manager of Girls Aloud) and The Late Late Show. This included her outstanding version of Fields Of Gold, as well as Somewhere Over The Rainbow, Love Is and Summertime.
Nadine's career and other factors contributed to the eventual break-up of a relationship with Derry-born but England-based soccer player Neil McCafferty. In 2005, Nadine began dating one of Girls Aloud's tour dancers, Stephen. The couple attended the "My Favourite Dress" ball in June, although now she insists she is single.
