After Westlife’s hit song Hello My Love won the award for RTÉ Choice Music Prize Song of the Year, Nicky Byrne has hit back at critics. Addressing those who didn’t think Westlife should have won the award, Nicky said: “To everybody out there who thinks we shouldn’t have won it or who have been giving us stick online.”
“You’re probably right you probably could have had someone without a belly or a temper, perfect teeth and hair growing where it’s meant to and stuff.
“But it wasn’t to be it was us this time and better luck next year,” he joked.
The band weren’t there to pick up the award on the night, but Nicky took to Instagram to thank fans for voting.
He said: “Hello everybody, it’s Nicky calling. Happy Friday, happy weekend I hope it’s going well for you.”
“Just a short message to say a massive thank you to everybody who voted Hello My Love as the RTE Choice Prize Song Of The Year.”
