In case you're wondering why Billy McGuinness off Aslan looks like a bouncer refusing entry to Ryan Tubridy's hot date for the evening, the below video pretty much tells the tale.

Some additional details before the battle commences: Billy was mentoring one of last night's Eurosong acts, and he, well, took slight umbrage to the presence of Louis Walsh on the "panel of experts". In turn, Linda Martin leaped to Louis' defense in spectacular style. The words "odious" and "gobsh*te" may have been bandied about, as well as some elaborate finger waggling.

Well that's just the best WTF *ahemspossiblystaged* Television everyone's gossiping about right there.

Hate to say it, but you wouldn't get such quality on Graham Norton.
