The Voice of Ireland AXED by RTE to make room for new talent show

It's time to say goodbye to The Voice of Ireland as RTE has axed the singing contest reality show.

So, now instead of seeing Kian, Rachel, Una and Bressie on our screens every Sunday night, we're going to get a eyeful of… Louis Walsh.

Yep, the music mogul is making waves as he sets to debut Ireland's Got Talent next year, something TV3 previously turned him down for.

According to the Sunday World, Louis will be the main judge (surprise, surprise) and he will also be picking who his fellow mentors will be.

Keith Duffy and Linda Martin are in the running to take the hot seat alongside Louis… But we'll hold out on that one.

What do you think, ladies? Yay or nay with this choice of action? We're going to miss swooning over Bressie every Sunday.
