Westlife, another Simon Cowell discovery. Very successful with 14 no. 1 singles in the UK (3rd highest in history; only behind Elvis & Beatles!), very delightful. Another foursome like Il Divo (original band was 5), its members being Nicky ByrneKian EganMark Feehily &Shane Filan.

My favorite songs from Westlife?

I love the lyrics in Flying Without Wings:

"Flying Without Wings"

Everybody's looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You'll find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be

Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover's eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you've found that special thing
You're flying without wings

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You'll find it in the words of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry

You'll find it in the deepest friendship
The kind you cherish all your life
And when you know how much that means
You've found that special thing
You're flying without wings

So, impossible as they may seem
You've got to fight for every dream
Cos who's to know which one you let go
Would have made you complete

Well, for me it's waking up beside you
To watch the sunrise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
In any given time or place

It's little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it's like flying without wings
Cos you're my special thing
I'm flying without wings

And you're the place my life begins
And you'll be where it ends

I'm flying without wings
And that's the joy you bring
I'm flying without wings

And YES, sometimes all it takes is a great song or two. You're loved for life, Westlife!

Whoa, I had totally forgotten about Westlife!  I loved them in the late 90's right alongside their American counterparts 'N Sync, Backstreet Boys, and 98 Degrees, though Westlife was always more mature sounding than the former two.  Glad to see that they're still around and creating music.  Good job, Simon Cowell!  Thanks for the job down memory lane :)

Wiki

Westlife is an Irish pop band formed on July 3, 1998. The group's original lineup comprised, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, Shane Filan and Bryan McFadden. The band is the only act in UK history to have their first seven singles go straight in at Number 1, and they have gone on to sell over 40 million records worldwide which includes their studio, single, video, and compilation albums.

They were signed on by Simon Cowell and are currently managed by Louis Walsh. In 2008, they were declared as Ireland's 9th richest celebrities under 30 years old and 13th in general. They garnered 14 number one singles in the United Kingdom, the third-highest in UK history, tying with Cliff Richard and trailing behind only Elvis Presley and The Beatles. The band has also won numerous awards such as "Best Irish Pop Act" at the annual Ireland Meteor Awards and is the only band to win the ITV "Record of the Year" award in the UK four times in a row. The band has also broken a few top records, including "Music artist with most consecutive number 1's in the UK" and the "Biggest selling arena act in the UK". In 2009, a poll from a highly rated newspaper in the UK saw Westlife rated the second biggest musical band ever in the UK with 39% of the vote. They were beaten, just, by the 60s band The Beatles who scored 46% of the vote.
