The wait is over. The new member of Hear'Say, Johnny Shentall, has been revealed.
But he's no stranger to showbiz, so was it a fix?
And can he save the band, or is it only a matter of time before Hear'Say split for good?
Let us know what you think!

I think it was all for publicity, all them people who wasted there time and they probably knew it was going to be him all along. I didn't like hearsay anyway and I still don't like them good luck to them but they won't be getting my vote.
I think Hear'Say made the wrong choice and that they should have picked someone that wasn't famous! But I still think Hear'Say are cool.

I think it was a publicity stunt. They are so adamant that it wasn't a fix that it seems to be just one big cliché.
Della, 15, Croydon
I think they picked someone from another band just to get more attention.
Alice, 10, Suffolk
The auditions that were held to find the fifth member were completely unfair as people were turned away based on their look alone; everyone should have at least been given the chance to audition.
Sasha, 15, Penwortham
Hear'Say were and still are a manufactured group this new 'signing' just goes to show how low they will stoop for a bit of publicity.
Dave, 13, Isle of Wight
The original line up have proved they can sing but I sense a publicity stunt!

I don't think Johnny can save the band. Kym was the only good singer. They will probably only last a couple of months at the most!
Prunella, 11, Winchester
I think that a lot of fans will be upset that Kym left and not like Johnny. Hear'Say should get ready for a long ride down hill.
Jennifer, 13, Warrington
I Think Johnny is going to be great in Hear'Say, I wish them all good luck!
Emily, 12, Devon
I don't think that Johnny should be in the band because Hear'Say had to go through a lot to make Popstars and at the end of the day Noel, Danny, Kym, Myleen and Suzanne all got chosen and Johnny didn't.
Kelly, 12, Chelmsford
I think the only thing Hear'Say can do is give Johnny a try and see what good he can do to bring the band up to the level of goodness they were before their album flopped! Good luck Hear'Say!
Gemma, 14, Shrewsbury
He is really good-looking and a great member for the band!
Hannah and Gemma, 11, Malvern
Johnny has joined a sinking ship!
I think Boom! were better than Hear'Say anyway!
Let's hope he sings as good as he looks!
Karen, 16, Accrington
I think that Johnny Shentall will save Hear'Say because he has had experience and he's a cool dancer!
Billy, 13, Magheralin, Northern Ireland
I used to like Hear'Say because they had catchy songs and the fact that Kym was in it, but now that Kym has left I don't think I like Hear'Say that much anymore but I hope the band won't split up.
Bethan, 13, London
I think Johnny's too good for Hear'Say!
Laura, 11, Southend
I used to like Hear'Say but once one member leaves a band it's not long before they all follow!
Sammy, 14, Nottingham
I think Hear'Say are ruined anyway. You will need a lot more than a new member to make them any good.
Carly, 15, Harlow
I think it will be better
with the new member in the band, if they had no replacement they would have split up.
Scott, 11, Hawick
I think he will make a success, if they split he will probably sing with Lisa.
Caitlin, 11, South Shields
I think Johnny is a great addition to the band and I can't wait to see how they get on together and what new music they produce. Good luck to them! They're a fab band!
Kathleen, 14, London
I think that Hear'Say were never good in the first place. The only reason they got Pure and Simple in the number 1 spot was because of Popstars.
People think that they will get better now that Johnny is here but I reckon that there is no difference.
Mina, 13, Brighton
I think Hear'Say are rubbish with or without Kym or that new person Johnny.
Carly, 13, Essex
Save them? From what, how can they get worse than they were in the first place?
Frances, 15, Newton Abbot
I think that Hearsay will end up going solo, but if Johnny is really good then maybe they will go back to number one and be the in thing again.
Kirsten, 10, Aldershot
I think that Hear'Say only picked Johnny because he is Lisa's boyfriend, they didn't give anyone else a chance.
Sarah, 14, London
Hear'Say were never that good anyway. I think they'll split either this year or next year.
Natalie, 13, Lincoln
Now that Hear'Say are a five piece again they can all get on with bringing us great music. I am sad Kym left but I'm sure Johnny will bring the band even more great success so good luck to him.
I think Hear'Say will still eventually split. It doesn't matter what Johnny does, the point is, they're just not that good.
