This is set to be the last series of The Voice of Ireland, as the show is due to be replaced by Louis Walsh’s new talent show, Ireland’s got Talent next year.
Insiders have revealed that the new show has been given the green light by RTE, and will take over from The Voice, after six series.
Louis Walsh is set to be the head judge, and has a list of some very famous faces he’d like to join him, including Sharon Osbourne, and close pals Keith Duffy and Linda Martin.
A source told the Sunday World, “Louis’ dream person to be on the show would be his buddy Sharon Osbourne, but she would be too expensive and also would find it almost impossible to find the time to do it for so long from her Los Angeles base.”
“It’s likely Simon will come over to Ireland to be involved in some way in it’s launch here,” said another insider.
The news comes shortly after it was revealed TV3 rejected the show.
