Brian Nicholas McFadden (born on 12 April 1980 in Dublin, Ireland), is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 90s as a member of the multi-million selling Irish male band, Westlife. He is now a judge on Australia's Got Talent. In June 1998, McFadden auditioned for the new Irish male band (at the time), Westlife with Nicky Byrne and eventually both joined the group alongside Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan. McFadden left Westlife in March 2004 to spend more time with his family - he was married with two children to ex-Atomic Kitten's Kerry Katona - and to work on solo projects.
