Format[edit]

It is Ireland's only TV talent quest for country and western talent. It is presented by Aoife Ní Thuairisg. She talks to the contestants after they perform to get their reactions to the comments of studio judges.

Each series typically comprises 15 episodes. The opening episode introduces each of the artists to the audience, allowing them to sing a song for the judges and the audience. Over a span of nine concert programmes recorded as live, the contests take their place beside their mentor over the course of one concert each. Each contestant performs a duet and a solo with their mentor within their concert programme. This is followed by a review edition recapping performances. Three elimination programmes follow with each session resulting in elimination of two contestants per week. The judging panel can save one of the three contestants with the lowest vote but the public vote is hugely important too. The grande finale features three contestants and winner decided by public vote.[1]
