Kurt Nilsen (born September 29, 1978), living in Bergen, Norway, won the Norwegian version of the television show Pop Idol, aired on TV 2 in May 2003. His single, She's So High, went straight to number one in the Norwegian singles chart and was the country's biggest-selling single to date. His debut album was I.

He subsequently won the vote for the World Idol title on January 1, 2004, singing the hit Beautiful Day by U2, beating competitors from ten other nations (including first season American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson who came in second place) and scoring the first place in 10 out of 11 voting countries. In the show presenting the entries on December 25, Ian Dickson, the Australian judge, said: "You have the voice of an angel, but you look like a Hobbit. If this were Middle-earth Idol you'd walk it." Kurt's gap-toothedness did not seem to bother the viewers and voters, though.

His second CD, A Part Of Me, released in 2004, contains much of his own material.

In January 2005, he broke up with his fiance, Kristine Jacobsen. They had been together for 11 years, and had two children together: Marte (born 1997) and Erik (born 2000).
