Westlife are in talks to reform in order to appear as vocalists on South Korean TV show Immortal Song.

The programme traditionally features a celebrity guest musician, usually a K-pop singer, and a selection of amateur singers who sing the guests songs. The show has a competition-style format and a final winner is chosen.

So Westlife would essentially be celebrating some of their back catalogue of hits, which had a huge fan base in Asia as well as Europe.

It is reported that all the band members have signed for the TV appearance, except Shane Filan who has been pursuing a solo career.

The website claim representatives from KBS revealed the talks are in progress.

Shane is the only member of Westlife to still be in the music industry – the band split up in 2012 after forming in 1997.


Throughout their incredibly successful career, the Irish band – put together and managed by X Factors Louis Walsh – had fourteen number one singles in the UK alone.

Westlife sold 50 million records worldwide, encompassing albums, singles, video releases and compilation albums.

The band still have an active fanbase in South Korea so getting the band back together after their split would be a coup.
