Prepare for more fun, tears and magic moments this weekend as TV3’s Ireland’s Got Talent continues on Saturday night
Episode Three will see 10 new acts take to the stage hoping to impress the judges and get one step closer to the Live Finals next month.
Saturday night will see magicians, singers and dancers of all ages and backgrounds ‘bring it’ to the Ireland’s Got Talent stage, including an Ireland’s Got Talent first – The Deaftones, a choir with a difference, comprising of 11 deaf members.
Ireland’s Got Talent continues on TV3 this Saturday, 17th February at 7.30pm.
TV3’s Ireland’s Got Talent has already showcased some exceptional and diverse talent with plenty of big television moments as contestants from far and wide have bared all in front of the judges, Denise Van Outen, Jason Byrne, Michelle Visage and Louis Walsh.
Last weekend’s big moment came when mum of two, Linda McLoughlin, nervously stepped on to the Ireland’s Got Talent stage, her family eagerly cheering her on from the wings. Linda had dreamt of this moment her whole life but had lacked self-belief. She sang Beyonce’s Listen, lifting the roof off the theatre with her stunning vocals. Linda got the second Golden Buzzer of the series, this time from Louis.
This Saturday night will see more acts of all ages and backgrounds from across the country ‘bring it’ to Ireland’s most diverse stage as Ireland’s Got Talent continues on TV3 at 7.30pm.
In episode three, we meet The Deaftones, a choir with a difference, comprising of eleven deaf members, who sign to the music, with two hearing members who sing.
This choir experiences music in a variety of different ways, including sensing sound through vibrations and lip reading. The group range in age from 13-39 years old and have been together for 7 years.
Three of the members are sisters, two are deaf and the other is the only hearing member of the family. Will this emotional performance strike a chord with our judges and prove that talent has no limits?
Tune in to Ireland’s Got Talent this Saturday 17th February at 7.30pm, followed by Ireland’s Got Mór Talent at 8.30pm.
Notes to editors:
Further acts in episode 3:
There have been lots of fantastic dance troupes so far on Ireland’s Got Talent and Saturday night’s show is no exception, from the baton twirling antics of Fatima Twirlers from Dublin to the jumping Pro Seven from Waterford who wear special jumping boots to perform their moves for the judges. Street Kidz are an energetic troupe from Belfast and these mini divas have been dancing together for 3 years, they have plenty of experience performing in public so the Ireland’s Got Talent stage should be no problem for them!
David (30) and Johely (26) are originally from Venezuela and salsa is their passion. David is adept at swinging Johely above his head and hopefully he won’t drop her in front of the judges! Also performing in this episode is Xquisite – Latin and Ballroom sensations from Tallaght! This group, aged between 9 and 11 years old, live for dancing and rehearse up to 5 days per week, will this training pay off when they get in front of the judges?
Jamie Skelton from Portmarnock in Dublin is a magician performing close-up magic and mind reading which he describes as a blend of sleight of hand, psychology, and misdirection. This 24 year old has been performing since he was just 14 years old. Can he work his magic on our judges?
Two singers looking for one final chance are 32 year old Steve Barry from Kerry and 38 year old Adrian Kenny from Cork, both have auditioned for Louis and Denise before. Steve is trained in musical theatre and previously got a ‘yes’ from Louis on The X Factor, he also auditioned for Denise for the role of Joseph in the West End. Adrian is fluent in Italian so has no problem singing operatic numbers. Will this be the chance he has been hoping for?
Philip Murphy (71) is a retired roofer from Dublin and is known affectionately as ‘Reggae Phil’. He started out singing Karaoke 10 years ago and is convinced the judges are going to like him!
