Watch Week 12 of Dancing With The Stars

They came, they danced, they competed, they made it to the final and then it was over. After months of rehearsals and weekly live shows, the first series of Dancing With The Stars Ireland came to an end tonight. But before that happened, we got to see Nicky’s return to the ballroom, dancing for the finale’s opening number! The energy never stopped as the crowd cheered for the 3 finalists fighting to be the first champions of the series. Who do you think won? Find out by catching up on the RTÉ Player:

Since many of you can’t watch the episode online, I uploaded a separate clip with just Nicky’s dance number, alongside the judges, Amanda, the pro dancers and the finalists:



After grand final, James Patrice caught up with Nicky, where he shared his thoughts on DWTS and the winners. I have to say that the effort and hard work everyone put into the live shows every week truly showed. Can’t imagine my Sundays without all the glitter and music, but I have a good feeling it’ll be back next year!

Final Day on This Year’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’

Tonight’s Dancing With The Stars Finale is bittersweet. Of course we’re so excited to see who’ll win the glitter ball and Nicky’s most anticipated return to the dance floor, but it’s also sad to say goodbye to the series. It’s hard to believe how fast time went by these last 3 months!

Nicky tweeted a group picture with the whole team and teased fans on his dancing debut on the show! Everyone’s done such a magnificent job and I’d like to congratulate Nicky on all the well deserved and earned success.


To celebrate a series wrap, Nicky got a Gino’s Gelato truck on set! What an absolute star. 🙂

The Nicky Byrne Show: Behind The Scenes

A couple of weeks ago, Rachael Kane went to The Nicky Byrne Show studio to see how the magic happened. She shared a great article on Buzz.ie about her experience. Read it below:

“The beast has to be fed every day.” that’s how Zbyszek Zalinski describes his job as producer of 2FM’s The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Greene, going live across the nation for three hours every weekday and attracting a listenership of over 130,000. He, fellow producer Caroline Clarke (they alternate days), Lorraine Dunne (broadcast coordinator) and Amanda Fennelly (assistant producer) are the engine that drives the busy programme.

I went behind the scenes at RTE Radio Centre in Donnybrook to see what really happens on the show. In the pre-show production meeting, the team runs through what’s coming up over the following three hours. Although the broadcast is music heavy and banter filled, it still takes serious fodder to keep an audience satisfied. Then we head to the studio where the Breakfast Republic team (Jennifer Maguire, Bernard O’Shea and Keith Walsh) bail out and the next squad sit in their still warm seats. Seconds later, Nicky and Jenny are on air.

Watch Week 3 of Dancing With The Stars

Week 3 of Dancing With The Stars Ireland was the best yet! This time we got to see all the contestants dance and fight to stay in the competition. Lots of laughs and fun, but unfortunately Hughie Maughan was the first celebrity to be eliminated. He will be missed! The show was also very special because Nicky’s family was in the audience. 🙂
