The fifth series of 'You're A Star' will start broadcasting on RTÉ One at 6.30pm on Sunday 26 November.

This series sees the return of last year's trio of judges, Linda Martin, Brendan O'Connor and Thomas Black.

Earlier this year, the judges visited Cork, Galway, Monaghan and Dublin, as thousands of hopefuls turned up to be put through their paces by the judges, with Louis Walsh joining in for one of the Dublin auditions.

New reporter on the road Brian Ormond hosts the auditions from Galway, Monaghan, Cork and Dublin.

The prize this year is a recording contact with Universal Music, a publishing contract with Sony ATV Publishing, €10,000 worth of musical equipment from Roland Ireland and a cash price. 

'You're A Star' will be screened on RTÉ One every Sunday from 26 November at 6.30pm, with the results show broadcast after the 'Nine O'Clock News'.

Six acts from each show will go forward to public vote and the two acts which score highest will perform on the live shows in the Helix, starting from 14 January 2007.
