Keating started his music career at the young age of 17 after being selected by manager Louis Walsh to join the all-male pop group Boyzone, alongside Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Richard Rock, Shane Lynch and Stephen Gately.

After extensive live performances, Boyzone came to the attention of record label PolyGram. They signed with them in 1994, releasing a cover version of The Four Seasons' Working My Way Back to You and The Osmond's' Love Me for a Reason, which jumped to the top of several charts.

During 1997 and 1999, Boyzone released three studio albums and one compilation album before disbanding in 2000. The same year Keating, who had previously experienced solo success with the 1999 number one single When You Say Nothing At All for the motion picture Notting Hill, launched his first solo album, Ronan, into the number one spot on the UK Albums chart.

Keating has won numerous accolades during his career, including a BMI European song writing award for fan favourite single The Long Goodbye, an Ivor Novello song writing award for Boyzone favourite Picture Of You, a World Music Award for best-selling Irish artist and a listing with the Guinness Book of Records as the only artist to have 30 consecutive Top Ten singles in the UK chart.

    hi ronan, im so upset that three wishez didnt go to final. I thought three wizhes vs reece. As u can see from beginning, three wishez is the best group, their voice, act, performance n good team work. They can sing many kind of music. Boring for me to hear andrew's voice...cant do more, repeat n repeat of john farham. Johny has no good voice compare three wishez n reece. He's nothing. He can dance, yes. All the young girls like him, yes, good body n handsome. I thought xfactor has been made to find next generation who has the best voice???
