RTÉ launch new game show with star-studded cast
The show will have you "on the edge of your seat" as singers battle it out for a cash prize.
RTÉ's new singing game show, hosted by Westlife star Nicky Byrne, is set to kick off later this month.
The show, which will run for eight weeks, sees pop stars Nadine Coyle, Joey Fatone, and Samantha Mumba offer their guidance and industry experience to contestants from all over the country as they take to the stage to perform.
Singers will compete against each other in a test of singing ability and nerve for a cash prize of €25k. Only one contestant will make it through each show to the finale.
A quiz show that you have to sing on?! 😂
Presenter @NickyByrne tells us all about it AND the stellar line up for the pop panel.

Singers will have to battle musically and mentally in order to impress the panel, the studio audience, and each other as they attempt to secure their place in the final.
According to host Nicky Byrne, the show will have audiences on the edge of their seats.
"It’s fast-paced, exciting, and full of jeopardy. Our singers face challenges like never before in their bid to land the top prize," he said.
“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.”
Panelist Nadine Coyle said that she loved the unique idea for the show:
"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.”
Last Singer Standing will air on Saturday 23 October.
