Wonderland are the new girl band bring put together and managed by Westlife’s Kian Egan and music guru Louis Walsh. I went to meet the ladies – ex-Hollyoaks actress Jodi Albert, hairdresser Sharon Condon, Marketing gal Corrina Durran, ex-school teacher Leigh Learmont, and Dental Assistant Kasey Smith – this week in Dublin and I think they’re onto a major winner after seeing them. Think the Corrs crossed with the Dixie Chicks. But hotter.
Powerhouse vocals, genuinely nice girls and with Louis and Kian behind them how could they fail?
Louis was on fine form as per usual – and thinks he could have found a winner in Mary Byrne on this years X Factor. He said: “I think people can totally relate to her and they will buy a record by her. She’s all real and she sings so well. People might compare her to Susan Boyle but they’re very different. Mary’s normal and less crazy and works at Tesco. Susan’s abnormal and works at Syco.”
