Nicolas Alves

Nicolas lives with his family in Torres Vedras, a town near Lisbon. His parents are from Brazil but Nicolas was born in England, where he lived until the age of 10.

The young rockstar found success on The Voice Kids in Portugal, gaining notoriety for his version of The Four Season’s Beggin’ - a song recently popularised by Eurovision winners Måneskin. 

He has a cat called Ben and a dog named Rocky, and in his free time Nicolas likes to play guitar with his brothers, as well as trying out new recipes.

Amongst his favourite artists are Queen and Elvis Presley - so he should get on well with France’s Lissandro, who has similar tastes!

Lyrics of Anos 70

Manda avisar
Que hoje não ‘tou pra ninguém
Hoje eu vou dançar
Eu ‘tou falando

Manda avisar
Que eu não ando bem
Meio fora do lugar
E se eu for eu vou errando
E vou errando

Toco um som antigo que nem o meu pai faz
Se eu ‘tou comigo, eu ‘tou na maior paz
Eu tento explicar, mas não há quem entenda
Que eu devia ter nascido nos anos 70
Que eu devia ter nascido nos anos 70

Deixa eu ser louco
Só um pouco
Ter um pouco desse céu
Deixa eu ser louco
Canto rouco
Mas me deixa só ser eu

Que eu não sei ser mais nada
E eu não quero mais nada
E eu não sei ser mais nada
E eu não quero mais nada

Toco um som antigo que nem o meu pai faz
Se eu ‘tou comigo, eu ‘tou na maior paz
Eu tento explicar, mas não há quem entenda
Que eu devia ter nascido nos anos 70
Que eu devia ter nascido nos anos 70

Deixa eu ser louco
Só um pouco
Ter um pouco desse céu
Deixa eu ser louco
Canto rouco
Mas me deixa só ser eu
Let everybody know
That today I'm off
Today I'll dance
I'm telling you

Let everybody know
I'm not doing well
A bit out of place
And if I go, I'll go wrong
And I'll go wrong

I play an old tune like my father does
If I'm with myself, I really feel in peace
I try to explain, but no one understands
That I should have been born in the 70's
That I should have been born in the 70's

Let me be crazy
Just a little
Have a small piece of the sky
Let me be crazy
I sing hoarsely
But let me just be me

‘Cause I don't know how to be anything else
And I don't want anything else
And I don't know how to be anything else
And I don't want anything else

I play an old tune like my father does
If I'm with myself, I really feel in peace
I try to explain, but no one understands
That I should have been born in the 70's
That I should have been born in the 70's

Let me be crazy
Just a little
Have a small piece of the sky
Let me be crazy
I sing hoarsely
But let me just be me
