Nicky Byrne and Aidan Power present a six-part series The Hit. This exciting and original series, is a music competition that gives fledgling songwriters a chance to have chart success with an established star. This series will have viewers enthralled as each week songwriters showcase their talent to two established music stars with the hope that they will pick their song. The stars then battle against one another to find the perfect song and are under pressure to select one they can turn into a hit.
Shot in front of a live audience in the O2 Dublin, the artists then reveal which song they have chosen. But ultimately it’s the audience and viewers who decide; when – at the end of each show – the two songs are immediately released for download. The artist and songwriter whose song charted the highest across the following week will then go forward to the grand finale show in August.
For the grand finale of the series the five artists will return to perform their song live in the O2 with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. But which artist will have the ultimate Hit? Only the viewers can decide!
This week Samantha Mumba and Republic of Loose compete to find the perfect song.
