“It’s a fresh new show and I think viewers will take it to heart on Saturday night.”

“I’m so impressed with the singing talent that’s on offer in Ireland, and I love that people get the chance to show it off on Last Singer Standing.”

Samantha Mumba described the contest as “a refreshing and fun concept and a spin on a traditional type of talent show”, which made her want to get involved.

“It’s always a pleasure to come home for work, because it’s also connected to seeing family and friends. Not coming home a lot over the past few years has made it even more special,” he said. she declared.

Joey Fatone added, “Last Singer Standing is a fun singing competition with a game show element and requires clever use of strategy from the contestants.

“Contestants have to choose from categories, which narrows things down and gives singers fewer songs to choose from…it’s going to be really exciting for people back home to watch.”

Last Singer Standing kicks off on RTE One on Saturday October 23.
