Nicky Byrne has said that his new talent show will have viewers on the edge of their seats.

The Westlife singer is the host of RTÉ’s latest talent and game show extravaganza Last Singer Standing, which airs on RTÉ One on Saturday October 23rd.

Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle, NSYNC's Joey Fatone, and Irish pop royalty Samantha Mumba make up the judging panel, offering guidance and advice to contestants over eight episodes.

Speaking about his latest gig, Nicky said that Last Singer Standing is “fresh,” fast-paced and entertaining.

“This show will have you on the edge of your seat,” he said.

“Our singers face challenges like never before in their bid to land the top prize.

“The superstar pop panel of Nadine, Joey, and Samantha are talented, quick-witted, and full of personality. It's a fresh, new show and I think viewers will take it to their hearts on Saturday nights.”

Former Girls Aloud star and judge Nadine Coyle added: “I loved the idea with this show of how quickly the participants might have to adapt to a song they are not familiar with in the original key in a high-pressured situation - it's exciting to watch.

“I'm just so impressed by the singing talent that there is on offer in Ireland, and I love that people are getting a chance to show that off on Last Singer Standing.”

Dubliner Samantha Mumba remarked that Last Singer Standing is “such a refreshing and fun concept and spin on a traditional type of talent show.”

“It's always a treat getting to come home for work as it ties in with getting to see family and friends as well. Not getting home much at all over the past few years has made this even more special,” she said.

While NSYNC’s Joey Fatone agreed: “Last Singer Standing is a fun singing competition with a game show element to it and requires clever use of strategy from the contestants.

“Contestants have to pick from categories, and that narrows things down and gives singers fewer songs to choose from... it's going to be really exciting for people at home to watch.”
