In episode 2:
The mammies of Ireland are well represented on Saturday night’s show with two in particular taking on BIG songs. Having reared her four children Eve Clarke (59) from Whitehall feels it’s her time to do what she wants and was encouraged by her family to enter. Mum of two Linda McLoughlin (38) from Meath. Linda has lacked confidence to enter a competition like Ireland’s Got Talent in the past and this is biggest stage she has ever stood on. Can she shake off the nerves and impress the judges?
Lia Della Friel from Donegal is just 14 years old and her eye watering moves have definitely caught the judges’ attention but will it be for the right reasons? Lia is a contortionist and can bend herself in all directions. Starting out in ballet at the age of three she hasn’t looked back since.
Chris (28) & Maria (30) are rappers from Limerick. Having entered a local talent search they felt the time was right to bring it nationwide. Will they impress the judges?
Tamara Operi (28) is a make-up artist from Dublin’s Liberties, and she is bringing us what she calls a ‘spice bag of music’. She will be rapping to Michelle’s favourite artist Madonna…Michelle also admires Tamara’s jacket so much so that she wants it for herself, but will she be as impressed with Tamara’s talent as she is with her jacket?
Sigita Kudima (30) is the rapping mum who considers herself the Latvian Missy Elliott. She has been living in Ireland for 10 years and counts Louis Walsh as a neighbour! Can she impress our four judges?
