Westlife were an Irish boy band formed in 1998 and disbanded in 2012. Originally signed by Simon Cowell and managed by Louis Walsh, the group's final line-up consisted of Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan. Brian McFadden was a member from 1998 until his departure in 2004. Westlife sold over 50 million[2] records worldwide, a total that included studio albums, singles, video release, and compilation albums.[3] The group accumulated 14 number-one singles in the United Kingdom (the third-highest in UK history, tying with Cliff Richard and only behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley) and 26 top ten singles over their 14 year career.[4] In the Guinness World Records, they are the top-selling album group of the 21st century in the UK as of 2010.[5] They are also the most frequent act to win The Record of the Year—the only music award in the UK based on public votes—with four awards. In 2012, the Official Charts Company listed Westlife 34th among the biggest-selling singles artists in British music.[6] Despite their European and Asian success, Westlife didn't manage to break the U.S. market, having only one hit single, "Swear It Again", which peaked in 2000. In October 2011, Westlife announced they would split up in 2012 after finishing their Greatest Hits Tour, following the release of Greatest Hits.

History
Origins
Prior to becoming successful, Egan, Feehily, and Filan along with fellow Sligo men Derrick Lacey, Graham Keighron, and Michael Garrett, were part of a six-member pop vocal group called Six as One and was later changed to IOYOU in 1997. Managed by choreographer Mary McDonagh along with two other informal managers, they released a single titled "Together Girl Forever". Walsh, the manager of the 1990s boy-band Boyzone, was contacted by Filan's mother and came to know about the group. However, the group did not meet Cowell's approval for a record deal with BMG, and thus changes were needed. Cowell told Walsh, "You are going to have to fire at least three of them. They have great voices, but they are the ugliest band I have ever seen in my life."[9] Three members of the band were told they would not be part of the new group, and auditions were held in Dublin where Byrne and McFadden were The band was originally signed by Simon Cowell. recruited. The new group, formed on 3 July 1998, was renamed Westside but as the name was already taken by another band, it was later changed to Westlife. In Westlife – Our Story, Byrne revealed he was keen to change the name to West High but the others wanted Westlife. McFadden also changed the spelling of his name to Bryan to make it easier to sign autographs. Boyzone singer Ronan Keating was brought in to co-manage the group with Walsh. The band then released an EP titled Swear It Again.

Debut album, Coast to Coast, World Of Our Own: 1999–2002
Westlife's first big break came in 1998 when they opened for the Boyzone and Backstreet Boys' concerts in Dublin. Later Act' award at the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party.[10] In April 1999, the group released their first single, "Swear It Again" which immediately topped the charts in Ireland and in the UK for two weeks.[10] Their second single, "If I Let You Go", was released in August 1999 along with the highly acclaimed "Flying Without Wings" produced by Steve Mac and written by Wayne Hector (their first 'Record of the Year'), released in October the same year, also followed suit. "Flying Without Wings" was also included on the soundtrack of the Warner Brothers film, Pokémon: The Movie 2000. Their first album, simply titled Westlife, was released in November 1999 and peaked at No. 2 in the UK. Ironically, the album was the biggest chart dropper on the top 40 in UK music history when, in its 58th week on the charts it leapt from No. 79 to No. 3 before falling to No. 37 the following week. This is the only album to have five no.1 singles in less than a year.((cn)) In December 1999, the double a side fourth single was released,"I Have A Dream"/"Seasons In The Sun", knocked Cliff Richard's "The Millennium Prayer" off the top spot and earned them the 1999 UK Christmas number-one single.[11][12] The fifth and last single from the album, "Fool Again", also peaked at #1.[13] Then the group went on a short UK, US[14] and Asian tour in support of their debut album before releasing a second album. Coast to Coast was released a year later and was another No. 1 UK album beating the Spice Girls' Forever album. It became the country's 4th biggest selling album of 2000.[15][16] The album was preceded by a duet with Mariah Carey on the Phil Collins' classic "Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)" and the original song, "My Love" (the song that bagged their second 'Record of the Year' award). Both singles reached No. 1 on the UK charts.[17][18] With this, Westlife broke an unexpected record of the most consecutive number one singles in the UK, having their first seven singles debut at the top. However, in December 2000, they failed to secure their eighth chart-topper in a row with their UK and Ireland only single "What Makes A Man" when kid's favourite, Bob The Builder's "Can We Fix It", was crowned as the Christmas number-one single of that year.[19] Outside the UK/Ireland territories, they have

Westlife released "I Lay My Love on You" and "When You're Looking Like That" and gained chart success. In 2001, they launched their first world tour, "Where Dreams Come True Tour", unofficially nicknamed "The No Stools Tour" due to the group's reputation of performing while perched on stools.[10][20] Westlife released World Of Our Own, their third album, in November 2001. "Uptown Girl", "Queen of My Heart" and "World of Our Own" were released as singles, all of which peaked at No. 1 in the UK.[21][22][23] "Bop Bop Baby" was also released as a single but it peaked at No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart.

Where We Are (2009)

Unbreakable: The Greatest Hits Volume 1 is the fourth album and first greatest hits album by Irish boyband Westlife. The album was released on 11 November 2002. It peaked at #1 in the UK and at #66 in Australia and sold close to 1.4 million copies in the UK alone. It is also the band's longest charting album. The album was the 9th best selling of 2002 in the UK. It managed to re-enter the Year-end albums chart of 2007 at #107. On October 2008, IFPI announced that the album was certified 2x Platinum, exceeding two million sales in Europe. On the year-end album charts of 2008, the album re-entered at #79 with 191,000 copies sold within the year. The album spent 55 weeks on the UK Top 100 Albums chart.[1] The album consists of all of the group's past singles, along with six brand new songs. The band's hit single "Flying Without Wings" was re-recorded as a duet with Korean superstar BoA and Mexican singer Cristian Castro, and each respective duet was included on the Asian and Spanish versions of the album respectively. The first single released from the album was "Unbreakable", a UK #1 single. The second single, the double A-side "Tonight / Miss You Nights" peaked at #3 in the UK. In 2008, the album was re-issued in an exclusive two disc edition, entitled "Unbreakable: The Greatest Hits - 2008 NZ Tour Edition". The package featured the album, with the same tracklisting, plus the "Live At Wembley" 2006 concert DVD. It peaked at #1 on the albums chart there, and achieved 2x Platinum status, with more than 30,000 copies sold. The album finished at #19 on the 2008 New Zealand Year-end charts. Worldwide, the album has sold over 5,000,000 copies.

Critical reception
BBC Music said: "They know how to ham it up for the ladies and are masters of the sentimental power..."[2] of Yahoo Music gave saying: With 11 number ones so far, it's good to see how they all stand up next to each other. Sure, 'Flying Without Wings' is a talent show staple, 'My Love' is great in a-bit-like-'Chicago' kinda way, and even 'If I Let You Go' is eminently more memorable than their debut 'Swear It Again', 'Fool Again' or 'Bop Bop Baby'. In fact, take away the obvious can't-fail covers of 'I Have A Dream', 'Uptown Girl', and make the boys look slightly uglier, and Westlife would have been lucky to get anywhere near the top ten with some of these tunes. A special mention must go out to the sadism of 'Against All Odds' though: Westlife + Mariah Carey + A Phil Collins song = pure evil, anyone? You get a taster of their new direction with the six (Six!) bonus new tracks, including the title track and new smash 'Unbreakable' and a version of Sir Clifford's 'Miss You Nights', which is this year's Christmas single. Hurrah, eh? Of the rest, it's a case of if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Westlife have certainly found their niche in pop, and by statistics alone look like becoming one of the all time greats. It's just a shame the actual musical legacy displayed here is so wet and uninspiring.[3]

"You Raise Me Up" is a Christian contemporary song that was originally composed by the Secret Garden duo. [1] The music was written by Secret Garden's Rolf Løvland and the lyrics by Brendan Graham. After the song was performed early in 2003 by the Secret Garden and their invited lead singer, Brian Kennedy, the song only became a minor UK hit. The song has been recently recorded by more than a hundred other artists, one of which is Josh Groban. He popularized the song later in the year it was originally composed and performed by the Secret Garden and Brian Kennedy, and became a hit in the United States. The band Westlife then popularized the song in the United Kingdom two years later.[2] The song You Raise Me Up is sung as a contemporary hymn in church services.

Background
The song was originally written as an instrumental piece and titled "Silent Story." Parts of the melody are based on a traditional Irish tune (especially the opening phrase of its chorus), the Londonderry Air, which is best known as the usual tune to the 1910 song Danny Boy. Løvland approached Irish novelist and songwriter Brendan Graham to write the lyrics to his melody after reading Graham's novels.[3] It was originally released on the 2002 Secret Garden album Once in a Red Moon, with the vocals sung by Irish singer Brian Kennedy, and sold well in both Ireland and Norway. Originally, Brian Kennedy was supposed to follow Secret Garden on their Asian tour in 2002, but fell ill, and could not attend. He was replaced by Norwegian singer Jan Werner Danielsen, who also later recorded the song together with Secret Garden. A demo version of this recording was released in 2010, on Danielsen's posthumous compilation album One More Time - The Very Best Of, which included several previously unpublished recordings.

Idol franchise and Il Divo
Cowell was given the role of judge on the first series of Pop Idol in the UK by then ITV Controller of Entertainment Claudia Rosencrantz[22] in 2001, he was then judge on the first season of American Idol in 2002. With his notoriously critical reputation, Cowell is likened to TV personalities such as Judith Sheindlin and Anne Robinson. Though comparable to Robinson, Cowell has expressed his dislike for her and has commented in an interview, "I hate her and I hate her show because it's just an act".[23] Cowell's prominence grew, fed by his signature phrase, "I don't mean to be rude, but ...", inevitably followed by an unsparingly blunt appraisal of the contestant's talents, personality, or even physical appearance. A lot of these one-liners were the product of coaching that Cowell received from noted publicist Max Clifford.[24] Cowell also appeared on the one-off World Idol programme in 2003, where it became clear that each country's version of the Idol had attempted to come up with its own "Simon Cowell" type personality. In 2003, Cowell placed No 33 on Channel 4's list of the all-time 100 Worst Britons. Cowell's S Records signed the top two finishers of the first season of Pop Idol, Will Young and Gareth Gates, both of whom went on to have No 1 UK hits. Efforts begun in 2001 materialised in 2004, when Cowell returned to his group manufacturing roots with his latest brainchild, the internationally successful operatic pop group Il Divo,[25][26] consisting of three opera singers and one pop singer of four different nationalities. Inspired by the success of Il Divo, Simon created a child version, Angelis, beating competition from many similar groups emerging at Christmas 2006.[27] On 11 January 2010, Cowell's exit from American Idol was made official. The 2010 season was Cowell's last on the show. It was also announced that FOX had acquired the rights to The X Factor USA, an American version of Cowell's popular British show, The X Factor, which began in September 2011.[28][29]

The X Factor
In 2004, with Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, Cowell was a judge on the first series of the British television music competition The X Factor, which he created using his production company, Syco. The X Factor was an instant success with the viewers and began its eighth series in 2011.

Leona Lewis, the winner of the third series of The X Factor, was signed to Cowell's label Syco and has had number one singles and album sales around the world.[34][35] Cowell returned for a fourth series on 18 August 2007 alongside Osbourne, Walsh and new judge, Dannii Minogue. Walsh had previously been sacked from the judging panel by Cowell for the fourth series, and was subsequently replaced by Brian Friedman, who was a judge on Grease Is the Word. Walsh was later brought back a week into the auditions by Cowell when he and Osbourne realised that they missed Walsh and that without One Direction signed to Cowell's record label after finishing him, there was no chemistry between the judges. Cowell third and being mentored by Cowell in 2010. The group are returned for the fifth series in 2008, with Walsh, Minogue [30][31][32][33] Cowell's latest international breakout act. and new judge Cheryl Cole, as Osbourne decided to quit before the show began.[36][37] Cowell returned for series 6 and 7 as well, although series 7 was to be his last, as he left in 2011 in order to launch The X Factor in America. After placing third in the seventh series of The X Factor in the UK, boyband One Direction signed to Cowell's label in 2011, and the group have gone on to top singles and album charts worldwide.[38][39] The X Factor Australia launched in 2005, but was cancelled due to poor ratings. It returned to Australian television for its second season on 30 August 2010, with Kyle Sandilands, Ronan Keating, Guy Sebastian and Natalie Imbruglia as judges.[40] Season 3 began on 29 August 2010 and ended on 22 November. It featured Ronan Keating, Mel B, Guy Sebastian and Natalie Bassingthwaighte as judges. Cowell also launched The X Factor USA in September 2011 on American broadcaster Fox. It was originally announced that he would be a judge both on the UK and U.S. editions of the show, which air at similar times of the year,[20][21] but MTV officially reported on 17 April 2011 that this was not true; Cowell is no longer a judge in the UK version,[41] but instead will be an enormous presence backstage.[42] He currently is a judge on The X Factor USA . For season 1, he was joined by Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger and formerly Cheryl Cole. After Abdul and Scherzinger left the show they were replaced by Demi Lovato and Britney Spears, who both serve as current judges along Cowell and Reid. In October 2010, Cowell signed new three-year deals with ITV for both Britain's Got Talent and The X Factor, renewing both shows until 2013.[43]

Got Talent franchise
Following the success of the Idol and X Factor franchises, Cowell, his company Syco, and its business partners developed a talent show format open to performers of any kind, not only singers, but also dancers, instrumentalists, magicians, comedians, novelty acts, and so on. The origins of the Got Talent format can be traced to the British show Opportunity Knocks, which began as a radio programme in the 1940s and later transferred to television, where it was an ITV staple for several decades. Looking further back, Opportunity Knocks had its roots in the variety show traditions of British music hall and American vaudeville. Cowell is the executive producer of America's Got Talent,[44] which debuted in June 2006, along with Fremantle producers of the Idol series, but he does not appear on the show due to the terms of his contract with FOX. The show was a huge success for NBC, drawing around 12 million viewers a week, and beating So You Think You Can Dance on FOX (produced by rival and Idol creator Simon Fuller). Britain's Got Talent[45] debuted on ITV in June 2007. Cowell appears as a judge alongside Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan. The show was a ratings success and second and third seasons followed in 2008 and 2009. The third

Simon Cowell series featured a publicity coup when Susan Boyle[45][46][47] made a global media impact with her regional audition performance comparable to that of any previous talent show series winner.

Other shows
On 16 March 2006, Simon Cowell's next competition show, American Inventor,[48][49] debuted on ABC. Fledgling entrepreneurs from across the United States competed to see who could come up with the best new product concept. The 2006 winner, Janusz Liberkowski,[50][51] received $1 million and the opportunity to develop his idea into a business. The show returned one more time in 2007 for a second season. In 2006, Cowell executive-produced Celebrity Duets,[52] which was described as "an Idol show for Hollywood superstars." The show was hosted by Wayne Brady, and its judges were Marie Osmond, Little Richard[53] and David Foster. Cowell was also the executive producer of Grease Is the Word for ITV. This show set out to find performers to play Danny and Sandy in the 2007 West End revival of Grease. It was hosted by Zoë Ball and judged by Britons David Ian and Sinitta and Americans David Gest and Brian Friedman. The musical theatre casting concept had already been introduced by the BBC with the ratings hit How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, but Cowell's show was not the hoped for success. He himself said, "It has been slaughtered by the critics – and rightly so. It is far too similar to our other formats."[54] Cowell collaborated with UK production company Shed Media to produce 2008 ITV drama series Rock Rivals, which is based on an X Factor type show.[55] In 2011, Cowell also created his first game show, titled Red or Black? and hosted by Ant & Dec, for ITV.[56] Series 1 was broadcast over seven nights in one week (excluding Tuesday), from 3 to 10 September. The show has been recomissioned by ITV for a second series in 2012, which will be aired weekly.[57]

Other activities
Cowell has been involved in charity work for many years.[58] He supports children from The Association Of Children's Hospices and invites them backstage to the screenings of The X Factor.[59] When he can, he stops by some of the hospices to visit the children.[59] He also supports animal rights and has appeared in a video for PETA in which he reminds drivers of the cruelty to animals that can occur when their pets are locked in cars in the summer.[60][61] In view of his charitable works, particularly the production of the charity single Everybody Hurts in aid of victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, as well as his services to the music industry, there was considerable media speculation as to whether Cowell would receive a knighthood in the Queen's 2010 Birthday Honours, a proposal allegedly put forward by former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown.[62] Cowell stated that he believed his chances of receiving the honour were "zero" following what he described as being a "royal row";[63] ultimately Cowell did not receive an honour in the list. In December 2003, Cowell published his autobiography titled I Don't Mean to be Rude, but.... In it, he told the whole story of his childhood, his years working in music and experiences on Pop Idol, Pop Stars Rivals, and American Idol, and finally, his tips for being successful as a pop star. Cowell has appeared as a guest voice in an episode of The Simpsons ("Smart and Smarter"), in which he gets beaten up by Homer Simpson (while criticising Homer's punches).[64][65] His voice was also heard on an episode of Family Guy ("Lois Kills Stewie"), in which he told Stewie that his singing was so awful that he should be dead.[66][67][68] He made an MTV Movie Award-winning cameo appearance as himself in Scary Movie 3, where he sits in judgment during a battle rap (and subsequently gets killed by gunfire for criticising the rappers). He also appears in the DVD version of Shrek 2 as a judge in Far Far Away Idol, and also provided the voice.[69] He appeared on an episode of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? (the original British version) and Saturday Night Live in 2004. Cowell has also guest-starred (filling in for Regis Philbin) in the popular talk show Live with Regis and

Simon Cowell Kelly during American Idol's finalist week in early 2006. Cowell was once the fastest "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" on BBC's motoring show Top Gear, driving a Suzuki Liana around the show's test track in a time of 1:47.1. When Top Gear retired the Liana along with its rankings after the eighth series, Cowell was the eighth fastest overall and the third fastest non-professional driver. On 11 November 2007 Cowell yet again appeared on Top Gear, achieving a time of 1:45.9 thus putting him ahead of Gordon Ramsay and back at the top of the table.[70] Cowell introduced entertainer Dick Clark at the 2006 Primetime Emmy Awards. He was seen on Comic Relief Does The Apprentice where he donated £25,000 for a fun fair ticket. Cowell has also appeared on the MTV shows Cribs and Punk'd. On Punk'd, Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson set him up to believe his $400,000 Rolls Royce was stolen and had caused an accident by using a nearly identical car.[71] Cowell was chosen as the first subject of the re-launched This Is Your Life in an episode broadcast on 2 June 2007. He was presented with the Red Book by Sir Trevor McDonald while presenting American Idol.[72] On 1 July 2007 Cowell appeared alongside Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest as a speaker at the Concert For Diana, held at Wembley Stadium, London.[73] Cowell was a partner in the Royal Ascot Racing Club, a thoroughbred horse racing syndicate which owned the 2005 Epsom Derby winner, Motivator.[74] In May 2010, he portrayed himself again, in another episode of The Simpsons, "Judge Me Tender".[75] In December 2010, he was added as a new entry to the latest edition of Who's Who.[76] At the 2012 Pride of Britain Awards on 30 October, Cowell, along with Michael Caine, Elton John, Richard Branson and Stephen Fry, recited Rudyard Kipling's poem If— in tribute to the 2012 British Olympic and Paralympics heroes.[77]

Personal life
Cowell became engaged to make up artist Mezhgan Hussainy in February 2010, however the couple separated in 2012.[78] They met on the set of American Idol.[79] Cowell is the godfather of pop singer Sinitta's adopted children.[80] Upon his appearance on Top Gear, it was revealed that Cowell pays more than £21.7m per year in income tax, suggesting that his taxable income is over £54.25m per year with income tax at the time approximately 40%.[81][82] (NB: UK Income Tax 40% for earnings over £34,600). Cowell was estimated to have a fortune of £200 million in the Sunday Times Rich List of 2011, making him the sixth richest person in the British music industry.[83] Cowell splits his time between homes in London and Los Angeles.[84] He owns a £9million home in Holland Park, West London,[84] and has a £13.7million ($22 m), 11,550 sq ft (1,073 m2) home in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.[85] In April 2012 he said that he had an affair with fellow The X Factor judge Dannii Minogue during her time on the show.[78]

Political views
Cowell is a supporter of the Conservative Party. In 2010, Cowell endorsed David Cameron to be Prime Minister and claimed that he has the 'substance and the stomach to navigate us through difficult times'.[86] In the aftermath of the election, it was reported that he had fallen out with fellow X Factor judge Cheryl Cole (who had declared her support for Labour and Gordon Brown) in a telephone conversation about politics.[87]

Acting
Keating says he'd like to break into acting but does not intend to stop working as a recording artist. He unsuccessfully auditioned for a role in the The Hobbit. The film is based on the J. R. R. Tolkien novel of the same name.[50][51] In April 2011, Keating worked on his movie in Australia, a romantic musical comedy called Goddess, co-starring the British actress Laura Michelle Kelly.

Controversy
Louis Walsh
When Keating announced he wanted to take a break from Boyzone, Louis Walsh continued to manage his career. Keating achieved a number one hit with "Life is a Rollercoaster" in 2000 while his album sold 4.4 million copies. Keating and Walsh later agreed to part company and then had a bitter falling out.[53][54] Walsh told the press: "[Keating] wasn't the most talented one – he's not a great singer and he's got no personality."[55] Keating later told Closer magazine: "That man absolutely tried to ruin me and if he thinks we can ever hug and make up he can forget it. I haven't heard from him in three years and I wouldn't have a problem if I never saw him again. He's not a nice character."[56] The feud between the two men had apparently ended by March 2008 after they were brought together following the death of Boyzone bandmate Stephen Gately[57] and they helped in selecting the finalists in the Groups category in The X Factor.[58]

Thom Yorke
Keating has criticised Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke several times in the press throughout late 2008 and early 2009, calling him a "muppet" and an "idiot" due to Yorke allegedly ignoring Keating at a hotel.[59] Shortly after Keating's remarks, Kanye West and Miley Cyrus also complained about Yorke's alleged rudeness. In response to the accusations, Yorke left a blog on Radiohead's official site for those who were not among "those people I have managed to offend by doing nothing."[60]

Personal life
Keating married model Yvonne Connolly in April 1998 and together, the couple have three children – Jack (born 15 March 1999), Marie (born 18 February 2001) and Ali (born 7 September 2005).[61] Following the death of his mother Marie in 1998 of breast cancer, the family home, which Keating had bought at the age of eighteen, was sold, rendering his father Gerry homeless and resulting in a bitter feud between father and son – Gerry was not invited to his son's wedding, which took place in Nevis. The two later reconciled after two years without communication.[10]

Ronan Keating Keating and his wife split in late 2011 following Ronan's affair with a backing dancer. He is now dating 30 year old Australian TV producer Storm Uechtritz who he first met on Australian X Factor in 2010.[62] after almost 14 years of marriage, and made their decision public in April 2012.[63][64][65]
