WITH stars in their eyes and their snazziest high heels on, hundreds of pop star hopefuls auditioned for the chance to sing with Westlife.
True to their pop roots, the well-groomed boy band formed a judging panel as would-be pop divas to strutted their stuff at the Marriott Hotel at County Hall on Tuesday.
The winner will sing a duet with the group for the foursome's new Rat Pack style album and appear on an ITV1 special with them.
The contestants were finalists of a competition that attracted more than 10,000 entrants, who sang down the phone for the chance to audition in front of the group.
Westlife member Kian Egan, 24, said: "Whoever wins has to be an amazing singer and really want it. We're not just choosing someone on looks."
The finalists still face an agonising wait - the winner is to be announced next month.
