Westlife have been praised for their first TV performance in seven years.
The boyband performed their comeback single, Hello My Love, on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night – and they definitely didn’t disappoint.
The song, which was written by Ed Sheeran, was released on Thursday, and has already stormed the charts.
After their performance, band member Nicky Byrne told the audience a hilarious story about meeting Oasis back in the day.
He said: “Basically we were a young band in 1998 and we just signed a record deal over here [the UK]. We had flown into London and the label said to us ‘there’s a brand new Tommy Hilfiger store opening, go along and try get papped, try get noticed’.”
“And when we arrived there were superstars, Liz Hurley and Oasis were there and was ’98 so What’s The Story Morning Glory was out, their biggest album.
“So we thought we had to go over and say hello. So they were having a drink in a circle of people so me and one of the boys walked over and tipped them on the shoulder.
“Liam turned around and we said ‘Liam we’re Louis’ new band, Louis Walsh’s new band and he just went ‘f*** off”, so we just f****d off.”
Following their appearance on the show, fans flocked to Twitter to praise the band mates.
