“The Hit” is back on RTE tomorrow night 9.35pm hosted by Aidan Power and Nicky Byrne.  It’s going to be an explosive episode as two artists battle it out to secure their song.

Nicky and Aidan told 98FM “It’s been brilliant.  We have six songwriters each week pitching their songs to established songwriters.  This week, we have Brian Kennedy versus Ryan O’Shaughnessy.  Brian has a meltdown, he can’t pick a song”.
Aidan joked about the last time Brian appeared on reality TV.  He threw a glass of wine over showbiz writer Paul Martin on “Celebrity Come Dine With Me” but thankfully he didn’t have any liquids in his hand on “The Hit” because he might’ve thrown it over someone if he did! He was completely stressed out by the process. He’s under pressure.  He has to pick his next hit in a matter of minutes”.

FORMER Westlife star Nicky Byrne is planning on releasing solo music material.

The Dubliner revealed that his brand new website will soon feature songs he has been working on.

Nicky, 34, who is currently presenting The Hit on RTE One revealed: “There will be music up there, I’m waiting to get all my ducks in a row.

“I’ve been working on some stuff and the website is definitely somewhere I will be putting it in future.”

But for now, Nicky is concentrating on nailing his live telly performances while presenting The Hit each week.

Nicky admitted: “Getting the first night done was the big one so far.

“There’s a real party atmosphere at the O2 with five weeks of rounds before the live final — it has already been a fantastic experience.”

Byrne’s new website www.nickybyrne.com went live last Friday and has already notched up thousands of hits online. Continue reading »
