All3Media International Acquires Rights for Last Singer Standing


All3Media International has picked up the format sales rights for Last Singer Standing, a prime-time singing game show from Ireland’s ShinAwiL.

Last Singer Standing sees contestants apply both tactics and singing talent as they take to the stage to perform. In each episode, they must battle it out musically and mentally to impress the panel of judges, studio audience and each other. The series made its Saturday night prime-time debut on RTÉ One in Ireland in October.

All3Media International will manage global format sales for Last Singer Standing for ShinAwiL’s original version produced for RTÉ One. This eight-episode series is presented by Westlife’s Nicky Byrne and features Nadine Coyle from Girl’s Aloud, chart-topper Samantha Mumba and Joey Fatone from NSYNC as panelists.

Larry Bass, CEO at ShinAwil, said: “We at ShinAwiL are delighted to partner with All3Media International in rolling out our newest shiny floor talent show, Last Singer Standing. The combination of ShinAwiL’s creative team and All3Media International’s global sales team is the perfect way to launch this new talent game-show format to the world.”

Nick Smith, executive VP of formats at All3Media International, said: “We’re always looking for innovative new format ideas for our global clients and are confident in the strong audience appeal around the world for Last Singer Standing. It is a fresh new take on the prime-time talent show—contestants must choose their songs wisely and will face challenges throughout, giving a sense of jeopardy and excitement that will entertain the whole family.
