Niels Brinck Kristensen (born September 24, 1974 in Aarhus, Denmark) is a Danish singer and songwriter.
His eponymous debut album was released in 2008, peaking in the top 10 of the Danish Albums Chart. The album spawned the top 40 hit "In the End I Started", a duet with Maria Marcus which served as theme song of the third season of the Danish police drama series Anna Pihl, as well as the top 20 hit "I Don't Wanna Love Her". Also in 2008, Brinck was commissioned to write the winner's song for the first Danish season of The X Factor . This resulted in the song "The 1", which became a #1 hit for the series winner Martin.
In 2009, Brinck won the Danish National Song Contest with the song "Believe Again" which was written by Lars Halvor Jensen, Martin Larsson and Ronan Keating. Thus, he won the right to represent Denmark in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, where he placed 13th in a field of 42 entries. Following his victory in the Danish National Song Contest, his debut album was re-released with new artwork and a different tracklisting, replacing four songs to include "Believe Again" and the original demo of "The 1", among other songs.
Brinck has been announced as one of 10 participants in the 2013 Danish National Song Contest. His entry, "Human", was written, produced and mixed by Brinck himself. His second studio album is scheduled for release in 2013.
