Final Of The Hit Tomorrow
The big finale of RTÉ’s The Hit takes place TOMORROW! Presented by Nicky Byrne and Aidan Power, The Hit is the latest music reality show format – and it’s been doing relatively well, with a quarter of a million people tuning in each week.
And that’s just in Ireland. It’s about to travel around the world!
If you were listening yesterday, you'll have heard Philip Kampff, who is the creator of The Hit and the owner of Vision Independent Productions, as did Declan Jones, who is the Head of Development with Vision Independent Productions, and whose job on The Hit was to listen to and whittle down the 1000 songs received into the show...
Today, we'll play all six songs!
