Louis Walsh Auditions

Louis Walsh Auditions

Last week, Louis Walsh came into studio to tell us about his plans to form a new boyband - one that would rival One Direction.

His search for five young talented men began yesterday in Dublin's Button Factory, where hundreds of hopefuls queued, getting in their last minute practice on their guitars, fixing their hair and sussing out the competition.

Our Brenda Donohue is the queen of anything showbiz! Not only was she there for us, but she also helped Louis out with the judging!  She's in Derek today to tell us what she heard...

Ryan Dolan

Ryan Dolan

Ryan Dolan’s valiant attempt at winning the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmo on Saturday night. But far from winning, it was Ireland's fate to come last – 26th out of 26 – gaining only 5 points.  Ryan joins Derek in studio today to chat about his whole Eurovision experience, and we also talk to Stuart O'Connor, Ryan's mentor, and the man who produced his performance on Saturday night...
