It’s been 6 years since Westlife announced they were splitting up, but we all got the biggest surprise when Shane Filan was performing at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, and they showed Nicky on the stage’s screen! It’s so nice to see the lads support each other and it was about time we got a new Shnicky picture, right? 😉 Plus, guess who else was there? Here are a couple of photos and a video shared by some fans who attended the concert: Rebecca, Jennifer, Louise and Miriam. Shnicky pictures thanks to Joanne Byrne, Gillian Filan and Caroline Downey.
Like I mentioned earlier this week, Xposé covered the Wella Trendvision Awards 2017 that Nicky hosted. While they were at the event, they had the opportunity to talk to Nicky and see what he thinks about the various hairstyles he’s had in his career. What is YOUR personal favourite?
Last month I decided to let you guys send me your favourite Westlife video/picture requests and I would post them on the the Fansite’s Social Media accounts each day. Since there was such a great response from all of you, I’m extending the #WestlifeMemories all July long… I mean, Westlife will be celebrating their 19th Anniversary anyway, so why not do it in style?
It’s hard to believe that this June will be 5 years since Westlife split. So many things have happened since and I could not be prouder of the boys and everything they’ve accomplished since then – Specially Nicky, who’s made his dreams come true and is doing what he’s always wanted.
Since this is a special month filled with nostalgia, I thought we’d spend it sharing the best and most meaningful moments of the lads as a band. If you follow the fansite on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, make sure to send me your video and picture requests – I’ll be sharing them on every account all month long: (@TeamByrneMx). Let’s fill June 2017 with #WestlifeMemories!
In other news, I made a poll with 4 possible Pictures of the Month. The photo with the highest number of votes (60) was… Picture No. 1! Thank you all for voting.
Here is June’s Fan Of The Month, @ZuriByrne! Check out her profile by clicking on his picture 😉 (you can also apply to be the future Fan of The Month).
Instead of having a #ThrowbackThursday this week, I decided we’d start the weekend with a HUGE Photoshoot Friday update – Don’t we all love those? Visit the fansite’s Gallery to see all the latest additions. From 1999 to 2004, most albums have been updated with over 170 photos! Click on one of the pictures below to view each shoot. 😉
After today’s Nicky Byrne Show, it’s no secret that we’re all a bit obsessed with the FaceApp… And Nicky is no exception. He used one of the pictures from the “Where We Are” Westlife days to see how we would look like as an old man, a kid and a woman; Turns out he’d be a very attractive girl as well! ?
Fun didn’t stop there! After everyone’s reactions on Twitter, Nicky decided to share another photo of what Westlife would be as a girlband. Not bad! The lads could totally pull it off. ? Fifth Harmony and Little Mix better watch their backs!
Huge news and big congratulations are in order because Westlife’s “My Love” Music Video has reached 100 million views on YouTube! This is the very first videoclip from the lads to reach such a high number, making it their first single to get VEVO Certified! I couldn’t be prouder and happier. Well done!
To many, this is Westlife’s best music video to date! Would you agree? What is your favourite? Share your answers on the fansite’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram Accounts!
To celebrate such a big achievement, a few accounts on Twitter and I decided to organise a special trend: #MyLoveVevoCertified. To help spread the word, I made a poster with all the information on the date and time of the event! If you have Twitter, make sure to be there and help us… If you don’t, please share the information with other Westlife fans. The more people help, the better. See you tomorrow! 😉
It’s Easter Sunday and what better way to celebrate than with a very special Easter Egg Hunt! Some of you might remember a dynamic I held last year where I hid eggs on the fansite’s main posts and sidebar… Well, this will be the exact same thing, except the prize is a little bit different and BETTER!
Thanks to the lovely Nicola from Shane Filan Ireland, we’re giving away Westlife’s “My Love” Perfume! You ready to find out what you need to do? Here are the rules:
Nicola and I will hide 5 eggs on each of our fansites and you will have to click on all the eggs you find. Only ONE on each fansite will have Westlife in them – If you find the egg that has Westlife, take a screenshot of it.

There was a small half-Westlife reunion on today’s show, because not only did Jodi Albert join Nicky and Jenny to talk about Jodi’s Boutique, but Kian Egan was there as well! It was a very pleasant surprise to see and hear all of them together. Here’s a video shared by Jodi on snapchat:
