It's quite the music-themed Late Late Show tonight as Celine Byrne, Gregory Porter and Pete Conway will join the RTÉ Concert Orchestra for three very special performances.
Kildare soprano Celine Byrne will join the orchestra for a stunning rendition of Climb Ev'ry Mountain from The Sound of Music and Grammy-winning jazz and soul singer Gregory Porter will perform Charlie Chaplin’s beloved Smile. Pete Conway, father to none other than Robbie Williams, is no stranger to singing for Irish audiences having joined his son Robbie Williams on stage at the Aviva earlier this year. He joins the orchestra on Friday night to sing the Joe Dolan classic Good Lookin' Woman and he’ll be sharing his memories of the Mullingar singer.
Also on the show, in a week when Ireland recovered from the worst weather event in 50 years, The Late Late Show will pay tribute to the people across Ireland who helped minimise the impact of Storm Ophelia.
Also appearing on Friday night's show will be actor, writer and raconteur Michael Harding, bringing viewers his unique blend of wit and wisdom.
Football legend Graeme Souness will be in studio to chat about everything from his glory days as part of a Liverpool team that dominated the English game and took home three European Cups to his controversial managerial career. He’ll be telling viewers why football is his life and he’ll be assessing Ireland’s chances of beating Denmark for a World Cup spot.
The stars of RTÉ2’s Salon Confidential will be in studio to give one lucky audience member a make-over. They’ll be filling viewers in on what went on behind the scenes of the hit new show and stylist Gareth Bromell will be telling all about giving Taylor Swift a new lease of life with her post-Calvin Harris break-up hairdo.
The Late Late Show will then be talking all things parenting with Maia Dunphy as she shares her experiences of the pressures of modern motherhood, dealing with unwanted advice, sleep deprivation, competitive parents and dirty nappies.
Catch it all tonight on RTE One at 9.35pm.
